Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems. It is caused by a mutation in the gene that controls the production of a protein called cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). This protein regulates the movement of salt and water in and out of cells. When it is not working correctly, it causes the production of thick, sticky mucus that can clog the airways, leading to chronic lung infections and block ducts in the pancreas, which can lead to malnutrition. Patient Handling provides a range of equipment suitable to assist those with Cystic Fibrosis.
