Today, the 11th April 2019, marks Parkinson's Awareness Day so we are doing our little bit to try and raise that much needed awareness.
So what is Parkinson's?
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition which means it causes problems in the brain, due to a lack of the chemical dopamine and gets worse over time. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's but thanks to Parkinson's UK, there are lots of treatments, therapies and support available to help those with Parkinson's, manage their condition. Parkinson's affects people of all ages and it is said that 1 adult in every 350 is diagnosed with Parkinson's.
Parkinson's can feel overwhelming if you don't have the right information and support which is why we are proud to support Parkinson's UK, who help everyone with or those caring for people with Parkinson's, not only with support services and products but the vital research to one day find a cure for this condition.
During the day we will be posting on our facebook page facebook.com/ibeaniworld
Today is #WorldParkinsonsDay! We are proud to support @ParkinsonsUK as they launch their #ParkinsonsIs campaign to raise understanding of #Parkinsons as a serious health condition.

Why iBeani supports Parkinson's
Having worked with a number of other charitable or medical organisations, we found our product offers huge benefits to people living with conditions which require a little aid. This led us talking to Parkinson's UK and they were really enthusiastic about our multi-award-winning, universal, UK made tablet bean bag stand, which we are pleased to announce is now available in their Parkinson's Living Aids Catalogue
iBeani are proud to support Parkinson's - Change Attitudes. Find A cure
