A CPA with SMA?
I'm Carla, a Certified Public Accountant with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
I prepare people's taxes and calm their anxiety, but can't lift my own glass of water. This form of Muscular Dystrophy limits virtually all movement. I can operate my computer with ONE finger on a touch pad.
And …..that's about it !
One of my needs seemed simple enough- to take a sip of water when I wanted.
I could not find a drinking straw long enough or stable enough to let me drink independently, so I designed one! - With the help of some very talented and creative people I now have a LONG DRINKING STRAW and HOLDER ---and I gained a little taste of independence.
NOW I am able to offer to others these very special, unique products that actually work.
* 28-inch flexible LONG DRINKING STRAW, (you cut it with scissors to just the right length) * Self-Adjusting Straw Holderto hold the straw in the glass.
* Adjustable CUPHOLDER - has a special suction pad base that prevents tipping over.
