Constant compression of neoprene vest FIX-T-01 maintains body temperature and warmth and has buoyancy function. Due to this fact, it is recommended for using in hydrotherapy and other water activities, but it is not to be used as a life preserver!
Back panel is offered in 4 options:
II – MILD SUPPORT
In ‘mild support’ option, our back panel is also made of thin, ventilated UniPren™, but it is equipped with special pockets where you can put malleable aluminum stays. They can be shaped according to kid’s needs. The vest provides essential compression and improves proprioceptive sensation and also stabilizes and supports the paraspinal muscles.
Aluminum stays are made of a special aluminum alloy that guarantees proper stiffness with minimal weight. They have rounded ends to prevent the damage of the product and come in various widths and thicknesses. The level of stabilization of the orthopedic device is defined by proper selection of the width and thickness of the aluminum stays. The stays can be pre-profiled or flat. They do not adapt to the shape of the patient's body, an individual adjustment of the orthosis is required by proper bending of the aluminum stays in the product. Thanks to this function, it is possible to correct the position of the patient's body or the secured joint.
MEMORYcast™ is a special thermoplastic panel for heat molding. The panel has the same properties as rigid nylon and softens when temperature is approx. 60° C. It’s very easy to do that, there is enough to place the brace in hot water or microvawe. Our thermoplastic panel is safe and biodegradable. Contrary to ordinary plaster cast, high plasticity of MEMORYcast™ allows to heat and mold it many times according to doctor’s recommendations.
