My name is Cesar Narvarte, an undergraduate from University of Hawaii at Manoa, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I am part of an undergraduate medical research team, where we are designing an invention that will help balance people with Parkinson’s. In order to start, we must ask you guys with Parkinson’s or those who are aiding a Parkinson’s patient how people with Parkinson’s fall. What triggered the fall? Describe the sequence of events leading to the fall as well.
Hi Cesar, I was diagnosed in 2015. I have had one fall; last year in the morning in the bathroom. I leaned to my left looking for support and there was none there. I landed on my head, I bled, but no concussion. I danced for many years, so I still have decent balance (not as good as it once was).
