Swivel walkers in Duchenne muscular dystrophy

, : Swivel walkers in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Archives of Disease in Childhood 62(7): 741-742

Swivel walkers were used to provide low energy ambulation in 11 boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in schools for the physically handicapped in South Glamorgan. Our preliminary experience suggests that these walkers improve the quality of life and provide a useful part of the physical treatment of the condition.

Sprengel s deformity, a rare congenital malformation of the scapula, may be observed in combination with spinal dysraphism. The co-occurrence of these malformations suggests an unknown shared etiology. Therefore, we reviewed the medical records of...
