Upper Body Compression Orthosis
UPPER BODY COMPRESSION ORTHOSIS
Upper body compression suite PCO-T-23 is designed for stability and posture control improvement in case of neurological disorders. Improves function of trunk’s, back’s and pelvic muscles and soft tissues.
The product is made to order by individual dimensions
How does it work?
Made of soft PowerElastic™, provides deep, core compression and normalizes muscles tone. Elasticity and deep pressure improves the body coordination and limits the involuntary movements.
PowerElastic™ is a very thin and elastic lamination that we use to produce high sophisticated devices. The lamination is made of 2 layers of spandex providing excellent compression and perfect fitting. Our spandex solution absorbs the muscle’s shocks during physical activity. Internal layer is skin-friendly and provides high air permeability and maintaining the skin dry. this layer is approved by Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
Upper Body Orthosis PCO-T-23 should be used as a additional to occupational and physical therapy activity. This solution will reduce involuntary movements, normalize muscle balance and improve therapeutic effects. It improves muscles tension mainly in trunk and back area. Upper body compression orthosis PCO-T-23 provides dynamic pelvic compression, increases postural stabilization and improves gait pattern.
It is believed that this type of Postural Compression Orthoses PCO® and deep compression provides better sensory information to the brain, increases proprioception and child’s knowledge about its own body. Due to this fact, dynamic PCO® orthoses are the best solution for improving treatment in case of abnormal tone and decreasing spasticity.
