Baclofen Pump Teleconference
from Medtronic, the makers of the Baclofen Pump . . . .
If you or someone you care for has tight, stiff muscles related to stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, or brain injury you know that this condition (called severe spasticity) can make movement difficult or uncontrollable. It can make doing even the smallest things exhausting or impossible.
Did you know that there is a therapy available that may help provide better movement and control?
You are invited to learn about Medtronic ITB TherapySM (Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy) by participating in an educational teleconference during which a doctor will talk about severe spasticity, explain how the therapy works, and discuss recent research on the treatment.
A teleconference allows you to listen to and speak with a physician and others living with spasticity on the phone, from the comfort of your home. Once you register, you will receive a toll-free number to call to participate in the teleconference. Note to non US residents – this call will be charged at international rates to the US by your provider.
Family and friends are welcome to listen in.
The teleconferences will be held on:
October 9 (Pediatric Focus)
April 8 (Pediatric Focus)
The teleconferences will be held at 7 p.m. Eastern time (USA) which is 11 a.m. EST (+ 1 day) in Australia.
To register, visit www.MovementforLiving.com or call toll free 1-888-743-8348. From Australia, this is not a free call and the number to dial is 0011 1 888 743 8348.
