    Jackson,

    Thanks for posting this! Is he doing this in New York? This is actually an old treatment that was used for cardiac patients before they started doing bypass surgery--though I don't know if it was timed for the counter-pulses to go with diastolic function. A few cardiologists still offer this. I have never seen it prescribed for OI, but it sounds great!

    Yes, Dr. Enlander provides this treatment in his office in NYC.
    I had it done twice so far.
    I would continue with it but, it's too hard for me at this point to travel into the city.

    I would definitely try it more if and when I can travel more easily.
    It's like getting aerobic exercise without the adverse side effects pwc usually get.
