UPPER LIMB COMPRESSION LONG SLEEVE
Upper limb compression long sleeve PCO-A-01 is designed for stability and posture control improvement in case of neurological disorders. Improves function of arm and hand and covers the sensory deficits.
How does it work?
Made of soft material PowerElastic™, 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 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.
Our Compression Upper Limb Orthosis PCO-A-01 should be used as an addition 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.
