Pieces of the Puzzle

  • MSAA distributes cooling suits vests and accessories, which are available to patients who qualify. MS research has proven that cooling the body can help lessen the negative effects of heat and humidity on a person with MS.
  • The MSAA Equipment Distribution Program offers clients products designed to improve their safety, dignity, mobility, and independence. MSAA provides these products at no charge and ships directly to the client. Items distributed through the program include a variety of bathroom and home safety products such as shower chairs and grab bars, as well as mobile devices including canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. Those applying to the program must include a doctor’s prescription that confirms the person’s diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
