This is not an endorsement of this procedure, however this is one video everyone with MS will probably want to watch from beginning to end.

The following device has yet to be studied in application with a person who has multiple sclerosis (MS) but upon first reading about this new product, it instantly occurred to me that it has potential for people with MS.
A prototype of “wearable equipment to support human motion,” called the Sensorimotor EnhancingSuit (SEnS) has been developed at Japan’s Hiroshima University. An article in the February 23, 2015, issue of Science Daily, reported that SEnS “enhances sensorimotor functions by reducing the muscle load of the upper limbs.”
The assistive device is “made of flexible fabrics using regular cloth and does not include any electronic devices,” thus making it inexpensive. SEnS assists human sensorimotor functions and might improve the quality of life for some people including those with impaired physical ability, elderly individuals, and even healthy people “who work under extreme conditions.”
Hopefully the SEnS — or the technology it incorporates — might prove helpful for some multiple sclerosis sufferers.
