The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) is an international, non-profit, voluntary organization dedicated to serving people with all forms of dystonia. Dystonia is a neurological condition characterized by involuntary sustained muscle spasms. Dystonia may affect various parts of the body and can cause abnormal movements and postures. The mission of the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation is to advance research for more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure, to promote awareness and education; and to support the needs and well being of affected individuals and families. Founded in 1976, the foundation distributes educational materials and informational videotapes, conducts symposia on this group of movement disorders, and sponsors more than 60 support groups for affected individuals and their families.
