Contraction Correction Orthosis

Contracture correction is a treatment that is used to reduce contractions in children with cerebral palsy and where contractions may have a traumatic or neurological origin.

The orthosis works by increasing the range of movement possible by applying a low grade stretch over a long period of time.Treatment is most effective if continuous(over night).This is especially useful if surgery is not the indicated solution to the patient’s symptoms.

The patient has a degree of autonomy in managing their contracture and the duration of application ca be made to fit in with the person’s lifestyle.
