Poiché non gli hanno riconosciuto la infermità professionale lui ha adito alle vie legali.
Nel frattempo il MDPH ( ente per la assistenza alle persone con disabilità) del dipartimento di Essome ha riconosciuto questa situazione di difficoltà con intervento economico ma anche di assistenza per gli interventi di adeguamento della csa per ridurre l'impatto delle radiofrequenze esterne.
Sembra essere il primo caso in Francia, e tra i primi in Europa (esclusa ovviamente la Svezia).
The Essone Departmental home of disabled persons ( MDPH ) granted financial assistance in late January to an electrohypersensitive (EHS) person, a first in France, according to the EHS group Collectif des électrosensibles de France.
Living in the south of Essonne, Jerome, 32, had to stop working in 2011 due to EHS contracted to work . He blames a device he used daily as a technician in a public research laboratory in chemistry.
While the status of occupational disease was denied despite the opinion of a medical expert, and he is currently challenging this decision in court, Jerome has had more success with the MDPH of Essonne, which depends on the Department's general council.
Pioneer in the field, this Department included EHS in its 2013-2018 health plan, reconizing it de facto as a handicap, says Sophie Pelletier, co-chair of the Collectif des électrosensibles de France, contacted by the Journal de l'Environnement.
If the MDPH Essonne has already granted several people with EHS the status of disabled worker, its decision in late January to grant Jerome financial assistance seems a first in France , at least to Sophie Pelletier's knowledge.
Assistance to adapt his home
Jerome said in an interview that the aid was granted him to adapt his home and to protect himself personally : he was able to buy grounding equipment , a voice recognition system allowing it to stay away from his computer, an anti-radiofrequency (RF) canopy for his bed, anti-RF fabric to cover himself when he travels in the city, as well as measuring equipment, namely antennas for his RF meter.
Discreet on the amount of aid he received, Jerome says it allows him to cover about 75 % of the cost of hisequipment. It includes a one-time assistance for the most expensive equipment and a monthly support for what he needs to renew, in particular the anti-RF fabric which he uses to cover his clothes and his head. All were allocated for a period of three years.
"What brought us to this recognition is the fact that this issue was supported by very credible testimony of the medical profession, leaving no doubt about the reality of the disease," equivalent to an 80 % handicap rate, according to MDPH director Olivier Desmazeaud. He adds this is so far the only application for financial assistance that his organization has treated for the benefit of a person with EHS.
On sick leave since 2011, Jerome hopes to undertake training to find a job he could accomplish from his home.
 Not his real name.
 To evacuate electrical charges to the ground.
