Here is a very interesting report from Ben's mum, regarding his gait.
"Friday 2nd June (4th day with COGY)
Today, Ben visited his physio at the hospital and managed 2 x3 minutes bursts of walking on the tread mill. His gait was wider than I have ever seen and his steps were strong."
As you may know, many people with weakened legs have particular gait. knee falls in (or out) and ankles are also un-stable. It is amazing she found changes in Ben's gait only on his 4th day with COGY.
I observed Ben
when he was on COGY. His knees stays tidy in the middle. Although they sometimes wobbles in/out, it seems to me that Ben knows that COGY goes easier when his knees are in the middle. I can see him trying to keep his knees straight.
By the way, I really liked this statement, too.
"Ben is sleeping very well with the extra exercise he's receiving from hanging out with COGY."
Hanging out. Sounds like Ben and COGY made a good friends with each other.
I would like any feedback, idea, opinion from healthcare professionals.
