Lipedema Foundation

Lipedema is a chronic medical condition characterized by a symmetric buildup of adipose tissue (fat) in the legs and arms that occurs almost exclusively in women. It is a common but underrecognized disorder. Lipedema may cause pain, swelling, and easy bruising and be accompanied by an unusual texture within the fat that can feel like rice, peas, or walnuts beneath the surface of the skin.
At the Lipedema Foundation, we support collaborative research that addresses the basic biology, genetics, and epidemiology of lipedema with a mission to define, diagnose and develop treatments.
Please visit our website to learn more about the Lipedema Foundation.

The Irish EDS Foundation

The Irish EDS Foundation and support group was established 10 years ago, to raise awareness and offer support for those diagnosed with and seeking a diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (HSD) in Ireland.
Our aim is to raise public awareness about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder including its comorbidities, and share valid information, in the hope that more patients can receive the correct dagnosis and treatment.
We currently have over 1200 members in our private support group who are diagnosed with EDS/HSD.

Silver Ring Splints

In 1974, occupational therapist Cynthia Garris was forced to take a new look at splint therapy – in that year, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She had long believed in the value of splinting, but soon realized that none of the existing technologies addressed the long-term use of splints. While plastic splints were adequate for treating short-term trauma, they were not an ideal solution for lifetime wear. In 1985, she set out to design and manufacture a new series of splints that were both more effective and more attractive than the splints then in use. In the process, she revolutionized splint therapy.
Whether they need finger stability for hand-intensive work or for everyday tasks like cooking and holding a pencil, thousands of people have made SilverRing™ Splints a valued part of their everyday lives. SilverRing™ Splints encourage complete patient well-being, medically effective hand therapy and a positive self-image.
