Motor Neurone Disease can affect many aspects of everyday life, especially when it comes to mobility. Centrobed have a variety of products which can help with such obstacles, especially when considering sleeping conditions.

We have a selection of products and beds which can improve posture and help aid sleep by finding the most comfortable position for an individual.

Such symptoms as; stiff joints, skin pressure, breathing difficulties, insomnia, muscle spasms and loss of muscle control, can be helped by improving posture by using specialised equipment to help relieve symptoms or help maintain some independence.

This type of equipment is also suggested by the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Mattress Variators

Mattress Variators are ideal for people who are in the early stages of MND or who have particular difficulties with breathing. The mattress variator can be kept in any position for any length of time therefore it can be ideal for laying in a slightly inclined position overnight to help stay comfortable and provide support for the neck and shoulder muscles which tend to be used more when breathing becomes difficult.

Sequential Therapy

Sequential compression therapy can be used to treat a variety of problems and
can also help improve lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. It can be ideal for MND patients who are affected by swollen legs or other limbs.

The 5 or 10 chamber garments work by inflating in sequence up and down the limb using adjustable pressures according to patients needs. Consequently excess tissue fluid which causes the limbs to swell is pushed back into the drainage system and limb size is reduced. It is also suggested that blood flow to the limbs is improved and can also help reduce pain.

Complementary Therapies

Centrobed can provide a variety of massage blends, and lotions using the high quality pure essential oils. For MND sufferers they can help muscle relaxation, improve blood circulation and help support pain relief.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to help improve the body’s functions and keep both mental and physical health in shape.
