Innovation. Nothing impresses me more than great ideas from truly gifted people. We are blessed in the Duchenne community to have forward thinking geniuses, creating devices that we believe will help spare muscle deterioration in people with Duchenne. Engineers continue to make huge strides in robotic interventions. That is why this month PPMD is launching a Robotic Initiative. Our goal is to raise $200,000 between now and May 1 so that we can provide grants to the most innovative technology in the field.
Whether projects are aimed at keeping people with Duchenne on their feet or assisting non-ambulatory people by preserving hand and arm function, they are about maintaining strength in a disease that robs people of the ability to perform simple tasks that most of us take for granted.
PPMD has a history of supporting great research ideas in their early, most vulnerable stages. We know the importance of providing funding in that moment when the researcher or the engineer must decide if they are going to move forward or not. And like we have done for over twenty years, PPMD believes in supporting innovative ideas that will both improve daily living and maintain strength for those living with Duchenne.
We hope you share our vision and will show your support of this exciting new technology by making a donation to PPMD’s Robotic Initiative today. Help us reach our goal by May 1. Help us end Duchenne.
And join me in thanking the talented men and women who inspire us with their ingenuity and humble us with their generosity.
