Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis - HSP
Assisted and adaptive skiing, snowboarding, walks, holidays and other alpine and mountain experiences
HSP is also known as hereditary spastic paraparesis, familial spastic paraplegia, French settlement disease, or Strumpell-Lorrain disease. The symptoms are a result of dysfunction of long axons in the spinal cord. The affected cells are the primary motor neurons; therefore, the disease is an upper motor neuron disease.
Winter - Accessible, Adaptive and Assisted Ski Holiday
Adaptive ski equipment and how you truly benefit from being with family and friends will depend on your physical condition but for many the Tessier Snow Kart (Kart-ski) has given hours of enjoyment and a real sense of independence.
The Go to Ski is another piece of assisted ski equipment which also has found to be of great benefit to people.
Mountains 4 All is delighted to help support life-enhancing accessible and inclusive experiences, holidays and respite time in the mountains and alpine regions for anyone with Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis - HSP.
As many of the symptoms are similar to Motor Neuron Disease, and that we have a number of beneficiaries who have gained enormous empowerment from an accessible ski and mountain holiday, the following resorts are known to Ski 2 Freedom as a good place to go:
