Cure SMA Adds New Equipment Item for Teens and Adults with SMA

Along with funding SMA research and offering clinical care services, Cure SMA provides thousands of affected individuals and families with vital support and resources that help them navigate daily life with SMA.

We are thrilled to add to our equipment pool inventory the Panthera S3 Swing—a lightweight manual wheelchair for adults and teens living with SMA. This specific manual wheelchair is normally a large out-of-pocket expense that for many individuals with SMA is not usually covered by insurance because they are manufactured outside the U.S.

Cure SMA would like to extend a big “thank you” to Biogen for funding a grant to support our equipment pool program.

About Cure SMA Equipment Pool

Through our equipment pool, Cure SMA loans necessary medical equipment—free of charge—to families in the U.S. In 2019, we loaned out nearly 400 pieces of equipment, thanks to the support of several generous donors. To learn more about our equipment pool, or how you can request an item for loan, please visit our equipment pool page, or email us at [email protected].
