Chulalongkorn Centre of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease & Related Disorders Presents Laser Walking Sticks for Patients with Parkinson’s

The Chulalongkorn Centre of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease & Related Disorders, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, together with the Fund Raising Bureau, Thai Red Cross Society, and the Department of Older Persons, Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, have developed the laser-pointer walking sticks to help patients with Parkinson’s disease and to support the aging society. During the COVID-19 period, which is a difficult and challenging time for many, the center will present 500 laser-pointer walking sticks to patients with Parkinson’s disease and the elderly in Thailand.

To receive the laser-pointer walking sticks, patients with Parkinson’s disease must present a medical certificate to verify their illness and walking difficulties. Those who receive the donated walking sticks must be willing to provide feedback information, which will be used for further development.

Those who are interested in receiving the walking sticks must pre-register at http://www.chulapd.org/en/announcement/40/.

For more information, contact the Chulalongkorn Centre of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease & Related Disorders at 08-1107-9999 or 0-2256-4000 ext. 70704.

Chula is the place to discover one’s true individuality and the years I spent here were most enjoyable.
