Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM)
I have only begun to post pages in this section. I was diagnosed in December 2016 with Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM). This rare condition, recognized by the Muscular Dystrophy Association, causes a steady and progressive atrophy of the muscles, generally starting in the quadriceps and forearms. There is no known cause, cure, or treatment, although there is some evidence that appropriate exercise seems to slow down the rate of decline in some patients.
As I cope with this condition I expect to post pages on a variety of topics which are related to IBM. The following is only the first, but I hope it is of interest to other sufferers of this terribly debilitating degerative muscular condition.
The Alinker® as a walker for IBM (Last modified: August 15, 2020)
(Why I modified it and use it that way)
I purchased and then modified an Alinker™ R-volution walking bike. This is my explanation of why I felt it necessary to modify this bike due to my IBM condition, and my experiences with it.
I do not warrant in any way that my web pages mentioned here are accurate or useful, and any use of them is at the user’s own risk.
