Dynamic Movement Orthoses (DMOs) are a new way to look at bracing. Traditional braces typically either hold a certain body segment in place or prevent an undesired movement or posture. DMOs allow guided movement enabling the patient, and more importantly their motor pathways, to work themselves to make the desired motion occur.

Full Description

Dynamic Movement Orthoses (DMOs) are a new way to look at bracing. Traditional braces typically either hold a certain body segment in place or prevent an undesired movement or posture. DMOs allow guided movement enabling the patient, and more importantly their motor pathways, to work themselves to make the desired motion occur. The trick is it encourages the wearer to do the things we would like to see them do. For example, some children have trouble opening their hand, grasping a toy and then releasing that toy to pick up another one. The DMO can be designed to help do just that. The difference is it helps the wearer to do these things better and more often.

Over time, the goal is they will be able to do these things without assistance from any external device because they have trained themselves how to do it correctly. Wearers do not always gain this ability however it has been attained by many. Independence! Regardless, greater functional ability and/or posture are the goals.
