      My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 2 years ago.Hi main symptom is lack of balance and gait issues. I read about this back brace in Parkinson’s News . It sounded like it would be helpful for him. His dr agreed to prescribe it and although we were able to get a company, Abililife, to order it, Medicare will not contribute to the cost. We’d be willing to go ahead and pay for it out of pocket but I’d like to know what experiences if any, other Parkinson’s patients have had.

      I tried the back brace. I have arthritis in my back and because of PD, I hunch over a bit.  I thought it would help my posture.  Sorry, but it was not helpful to me.  As I recall, Medicare did pay for it.
