Where improvement in proximal stability is required a suit may affect hip position & trunk stability and benefit patients with:

  • Low underlying tone
  • Poor sitting ability
  • Hyperkyphosis of the thoracic spine
  • Shoulder protraction linked with low tone
  • Movements associated with athetoid and ataxic cerebral palsy
  • Neuropathic Scoliosis
  • Mobile Idiopathic Scoliosis
  • Spasticity with underlying low tone

The individual orthosis designs allow prescribers to work with complex postural presentations such as neuropathic scoliosis - here the aim is to maintain or reduce the curve using a layer(s) of material panels specifically positioned to encourage the spine to realign itself. A real alternative to more rigid bracing.

In the X-ray shown a 31° curve was reduced to an 18° curve and the child showed improvement in upper limb function & head control
