Disability Muscular Hypertonicity

Shilla is a 12-year-old girl who cannot walk, sit, or stand. She is in a wheelchair and her muscles are hypertonic, meaning they do not relax, and she has very little control over her movements. She lives with her mother and aunt and goes to school. Her wheelchair is not in good condition and needs some improvements made to it to help Shilla sit properly in the chair. The adaptive equipment can also serve to break up the tone in her muscles allowing Shilla to control her movements better. Shilla is always happy to see us and is full of joy.
