Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. In people with MS what happens is that the immune system attacks the myelin or nerve cells with great force. As the nerves are spread throughout the body, the disease can manifest itself in different parts of the body and in different ways. For this reason, it is called the “disease of a thousand faces”.

Approximately 2,500,000 people worldwide have MS, 770,000 of them in Europe. The causes of the disease have not yet been clarified, but some research already points to the influence of genetic and environmental factors.

It is worth noting that there are some things about Multiple Sclerosis that are untrue. Such as that it is a fatal disease. Although it is true that it reduces the life expectancy of those affected and causes many difficulties in their daily lives, it is not a fatal disease.

Among the different symptoms that Multiple Sclerosis can produce is lack of vision, tremors in the body, problems in the urine and intestine, problems in the coordination of movements or difficulty in speech, among others.

As we have mentioned, each case is different and each person can be affected to a different degree of severity. However, one of the most common symptoms is the lack of good mobility, at least in the moments when a flare-up occurs. This makes it very difficult to perform super everyday tasks that may seem silly to any healthy individual. For example, getting out of bed, going to the toilet, walking downstairs or drying oneself after a shower.

Our body dryer offers the possibility for people with certain mobility problems to have a shower and drying experience that is closer to normal. This also avoids risks such as falls in the bathroom. Valiryo is a highly efficient full-body body dryer, which aims to revolutionise the way we dry ourselves. Valiryo offers the user a relaxing and effortless drying experience after showering while minimising the need for towels.

At Valiryo Technologies it was clear to us from the beginning that the products we produced had to generate social good and improve the lives of people who need them. In this case, Valiryo’s body dryer, by avoiding the use of towels, eliminates the risk that these people may suffer when moving a towel. All they have to do is stand in front of the body dryer and relax. Moreover, it is a product that can also be used in a wheelchair.

At Valiryo we also want to do our bit in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. We also collaborate with different associations and offer different discounts to people with different needs such as mobility problems.
