What is DMO?
DM Orthotics design and manufacture dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses which are used for the management of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, MS, Stroke and Scoliosis.
DM Orthotics was established in 2005 and now distributes to over 20 countries worldwide. The company has a strong focus on research and development and has a single goal - to improve function and independence.
Each product is individually prescribed to the specific needs of the patient. We combine the latest CADCAM technology with traditional tailoring techniques to ensure each product matches the exact measurements provided to us.
How does it work?
Our orthoses use strategically placed panelling which apply translation forces to position the body into improved postural alignment. This new biomechanical state combined with enhanced proprioception, stimulates and adjusts the neuro-sensory system, training muscles to work with improved tone, strength and performance.
Dynamic Movement Orthoses use elastomeric fabric which is soft, flexible and strong. The benefits of this material hold many benefits over rigid bracing, such as:
- Greater proprioception
- Permits range of movement
- Encourages muscle usage
- Patient compliance
- Patient comfort
Dynamic Movement Orthoses offer a number of physical benefits to the user including:
- Improved posture
- Improved movement control
- Improved proximal or distal function
- Reduced involuntary movements
- Pain relief
- Decreased associated reactions
- Easier transfers
- Improved therapy sessions
