Dynamic Lycra® Gloves

Where improvement in upper limb function is required a glove may improve gross and fine motor skills and the posture of the arm:

  • Abduct the thumb
  • Extend and encourage control of fingers
  • Extend the wrist
  • Extend the elbow
  • Encourage supination of the forearm

These orthoses have been used in the treatment of hemiplegia, quadriplegia, cerebral vascular accidents, trauma and now in some cases of multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.

Before and after a dynamic lycra® glove

The patient presented with hemiplegia & hypotonia.

The glove may feature a long or short sleeve depending on the involvement of the whole arm. As well as the functional improvements, the patient may benefit from a reduction in dynamic contractures and the hemiplegic arm may be lower and straighter when walking. Gloves may be used in conjunction with a Dynamic Lycra® Suit or Arm Sleeve.
