“They are incredibly valuable”
— Emma Linley, Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist and Team Lead London Spinal Cord Injury Centre
“I have just seen a BPL patient this morning who has a silicone subluxation orthosis and he has been praising it’s benefits. He reports finding it better than the omotrain as he can tolerate the pressure of the cuff on the arm (as in his experience it does not need to be as tight as the omotrain to be effective) and it is less bulky to wear.”
— Kathryn Johnson, Clinical Specialist Upper Limb Occupational Therapist - Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital
I developed this orthosis whilst working with brachial plexus patients at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, London. It is unique in its ability to fully neutralise shoulder subluxation. All other commercially available orthoses that I have trialled do not work effectively; The silicone component is the key feature. This is now regularly utilised at the RNOH for all subluxation issues and is also utilised by the Wellington Hospital, London in their neuro-rehabilitation department. I am therefore opening this orthosis up for use elsewhere because the applications, although very specific have uses in a number of conditions.
Indications for Use:
· Gleno-humeral Joint Subluxation
· Spinal Injury
· Brachial Plexus Injury
· Sport Injuries
· Post-operative Rehabilitation
Features and Benefits:
· With the use of a gently elastic silicone sleeve an effective suction force can be achieved to transmit a humeral elevation force without excess circumferential pressure.
· A shoulder harness with a leather shoulder yoke can then be used to provide the suspension point.
· Reduction of subluxation is achieved in the most direct and effective manner; consequentially resulting in minimal force application.
