Muscle weakness, breathing problems, paralysis—it’s a really good thing polio has been almost entirely eradicated thanks to vaccines, with only 136 cases worldwide in 2018. That said, prepare your unvaccinated children for the consequences with the Polio Box.
What’s in the box?
Home Remedies - Nonparalytic polio causes flu-like symptoms that can last for up to 10 days. Ease your child’s discomfort with goodies like chicken soup, hot and cold compresses, and 1930s-era literature.
Leg Braces - These leg braces provide an added layer of support when polio causes your child’s muscles to inevitably start to weaken. Available in a variety of colors.
Corrective Shoes - Polio can affect your child’s growth in a variety of ways. A common symptom is that polio slows growth in one leg, causing a life-long limp that can lead to other complications like scoliosis. This modern and stylish shoe is designed to provide the comfort and support your child’s feet will need.
Polio Vest - Instead of limiting your child to a full iron lung apparatus (super popular in the 1930s when polio was a common problem), take this negative pressure vest on the go for breathing assistance wherever life takes your family.
Each box is priced based on the cost per hospitalization for each of the diseases according to the CDC.
