Postural Compression Orthoses

A soft full-body orthosis intended to be used to facilitate correction of muscle disfunction and postural disturbances associated with central nervous system disease (e.g., cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic paraplegia) principally by normalisation of proprioceptive impulses and inhibition of tone in spastic muscles. It consists of several parts of a suit: vest, belt, shorts, knee pads, shoes and cap, all interconnected with a system of adjustable elastic bands and worn by the patient while participating in a variety of activities (e.g., exercises, gait training, playing) under the supervision of a healthcare provider. It is available in a range of sizes. This is a reusable device. Zipped vests are available in 2 variants: with a zipper at the front or back.

 

Our products are made to individual order, production time is about 10 working days. 

PCO-T-01 and PCO-T-02 have sizing options already available, so are 'off the shelf' products.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Made of soft Lycra, provides deep, core compression and normalises muscles tone.

 

Neoprene back panel provides additional stabilisation and reduces the pressure of bone prominence. Elasticity and deep pressure improves body coordination and limits the involuntary movements.

Our PCO-T-01 dynamic suite with neoprene back panel should be used as an additional to occupational and physical therapy activity. This solution will reduce involuntary movements, normalise muscle balance and improve therapeutic effects.

The back panel is made of thin, ventilated neoprene which maintains the body temperature, reduces pain and improves healing. What is more, the compression provides proprioceptive input that is necessary in case of neurological disorders.

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.
