Muscular dystrophies are a group of inherited muscle disorders that lead to muscle weakness of varying severity. The most common are Duchenne's and Becker's muscular dystrophies, which are inherited genetically.

People with muscular dystrophy have difficulties in independent movement , when going up or down stairs and when getting up from a sitting position. Given that it is a progressive disease, an increasing number of muscles are affected, so in the end people can move only with the help of a wheelchair.

Muscular dystrophy can also affect the heart muscle and cause weakness in the body, due to which the health of people suffering from muscular dystrophy can be impaired.

Muscular dystrophy is an incurable disease , but with the help of therapies and medicines it is possible to make life easier for people suffering from this disease. In everyday life, people can achieve greater independence by using assistive technology and assisted communication.
