- Portrait of Michael Sagel
The whole body is paralyzed. Speaking and swallowing are not possible. Only the eyelids can move. The
Anglo-Saxon language named this condition Locked-In-Syndrome. A lot of people with
this condition die. The Locked-In-Syndrome can be the
consequence of a stroke, suffering from ALS, another sickness
and it can also happen as the result of an accident. In former
times patients with L.I.S. were treated as bodies without
emotions. A terrible mistake! In recent years people have come
to realize that, though prolonged treatment, amazing success
can be obtained.
