Epilepsy and Tandem jumps Can't Post

Hey everyone,

Just wondered if it's possible for someone with epilepsy to do a tandem jump.

Reason being my father has epilepsy and has always wanted to jump, but since being diagnosed he just gave up on the idea.

Is it a big problem for tandem jumps if you mention the E word?

Thanks for any replies in advance Smile

how often does he have seziures? Does he take meds? Is it okay with his MD. Based on your responses, I can give you an opinion, as a tandem master, if he has been seziure free for a while, if he is taking his beds as ordered and if it's okay with his MD, I would have no problem taking him on a tandem.
