      Does anyone have any tips on ways to keep lower extremities from swelling. Any aids that really work to help get tight compression socks on?

      Any supplements or medicationthat help reduce swollen legs?

       

      Thank you

      Dear Louise,
      My brother is fortunate enough to have the highly adaptable TDX SP2 power chair from Invacare.

      To reduce pressure sores and leg problems the wheelchair specialist at our University of Florida ALS clinic emphatically insists that the user recline several times per day for one hour at a time.
      See the attached photos below.

      During the reclining one can nap, watch TV, make phone calls or perform other tasks.
