Transition Industries is a physical medicine and rehabilitation company that has developed a “Transfer and Lift Control” (TLC) unit for patients who have great difficulty getting in and out of bed.  Burkholder said that, because some Parkinson’s disease medications cannot be taken at night, a patient’s body will go completely rigid at night and that could lead to serious injury. Burkholder said the unit has been a great help to his patients as well as veterans, and hopes that the unit eventually will make its way into hospitals as well.
