FOREARM COMPRESSION SLEEVE
Forearm compression sleeve PCO-A-02 is designed for stability and posture control improvement in case of neurological disorders. Improves function of forearm and hand and covers the sensory deficits.
How does it work?
Made of soft PowerElastic™ fabric, provides deep, core compression and normalizes muscles tone. Elasticity and deep pressure improves the body coordination and limits the involuntary movements. Deep compression in the hand and thumb area improves the hand function such as gripping, holding or finger opposition.
PowerElastic™ is a very thin and very flexible fabric for the production of delicate and sophisticated orthopedic products. It consists of spandex, the action of which is responsible for proper compression and fitting of the product to the patient's body, and reduces muscle vibrations generated during increased physical exertion. It is responsible for maintaining the proper climate next to the skin and effective drainage of sweat, and its structure guarantees velvety softness to the touch. PowerElastic™ is skin-friendly fabric and has the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate.
Compression Forearm Orthosis PCO-A-02 should be used as an 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, back and shoulder area. Long sleeves improves the muscle control and reduces undesired involuntary movements of upper limbs.
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.
