Patient Stories: Emma and Nick Lockwood

Wonders of Technology Help Siblings with Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Like most kids their age, siblings Emma and Nick Lockwood, ages 10 and 8, have taken to technology. They love computer games and chatting with their friends. The difference is Emma and Nick get around on motorized wheelchairs and hook up to technology through their chairs, where the controls are close to their fingertips. The siblings have Spinal Muscular Atrophy, an inherited disease that causes loss of motor function. Their family helps run a foundation to find a cure, and they come to The Perlman Center at Cincinnati Children's for therapy that helps them beat the odds.
