Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a condition that can lead to falls and serious injuries. Bathrooms can be a particularly dangerous place, as they often have slippery floors and hard surfaces. People with Emery-Dreifuss often have trouble with balance and coordination, making them more likely to fall. There are some things that you can do to reduce the risk of bathroom falls. For example, you can install grab bars in the shower and near the toilet. You can also use a shower chair or stool to make it easier to get in and out of the shower. If you are mobility-impaired, you may also want to consider getting a mobility scooter or power wheelchair. These devices can help you stay mobile and independent.
