This term encapsulates over 300 conditions resulting in multiple curved joints present at birth. While symptoms vary, individuals commonly experience joint stiffness and muscle debility.

Carr’s dedication to disability rights in the UK is unwavering. In a 2011 Newsnight debate concerning assisted suicide, she expressed, “We’ve diminished the value of certain societal groups, including the ill, disabled, and elderly. I believe it’s detrimental to grant doctors the legal authority to end the lives of these individuals.”
