Can Someone Tell Me What To Expect On My First Dbs Programming Appointment.

Can Someone Tell Me What To Expect On My First Dbs Programming Appointment.

I go tomorrow for my first programming session. How long does it usually take? Do they teach you how to use and program yourself? Do you see results right away or are you disappointed the first time? Bean

Depending on where and who's doing the programming will effect how long it takes. My first session was about 20 mins and my distonia responded straight away with my foot going straight immediately.

My wife has been going for 6 months and they are still adjusting. They teach you how to use it. I adjust it for my wife and it is not to difficult.

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member, yes it is pretty easy to adjust, my husband does it for me but I am getting no relief with all the settings I have went through. Bean
