Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (sIBM)

I have only begun to post pages in this section of my web site. I was diagnosed in December 2016 with Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (sIBM). 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 sIBM. The following is only the first, but I hope it is of interest to other sufferers of this terribly debilitating degenerative muscular condition.


The Alinker® as a rollator for sIBM (Content modifed: August, 2021)

(Why I modified it and use it that way)

In July 2020 I obtained and then modified an Alinker™ R-volution walking bike to use as a rollator. This web page is my explanation of why I felt it necessary to modify this bike due to my sIBM medical condition, and my experiences with it.
