Traverse City Orthotics – More than a Brace Futuristic Hand Rehabilitation
Traverse City orthotics for hands have been revolutionized by Bioness. Their cutting edge technology offers an incredible advancement in the orthotic brace, providing futuristic hand rehabilitation with incredible benefits for people who are trying to recover the use of a hand. Traverse City orthotics specialists at Teter Orthotics & Prosthetics have seen the results and are dedicated to helping others experience rehabilitation success.
The Ness H200 Hand Rehabilitation System seems as if it has been pulled from the props department of a science fiction movie. It is designed to help people who are recovering from conditions such as a stroke, brain injury, trauma to the spinal cord or neurological disorder that has limited or restricted their ability to use one or both hands.
The H200 system is lightweight, wireless and very easy to operate. Clients report feeling the wireless capability makes using the H200 very convenient and discreet, while its ergonomic design facilitates freedom of movement. The low-level electrical stimulation helps to stimulate the nerves that control the muscles you need to use to control the movements of your hand. This is important because as Traverse City orthotics users will attest, unrestricted movement and encouraging full use of the hand is key to rehabilitation.
The ability to customized the orthotic therapy makes it unique. The electrical stimulation is not generic. Your clinician will program the H200 system so that it stimulates the nerves and muscles in your forearm and hand that need to improve. The external stimulation is intended to re-educate brain signals to stimulate the muscles and nerves that have been weakened, damaged or paralyzed. There is a small control unit that lets you control the electrical stimulation precisely, adjusting it as required and in keeping with your unique therapy program. The control unit is the perfect size to carry in your purse or pocket.
The H200 system combines the support for functions of a custom-fit orthotics device with a microprocessor. Traverse City orthotics users who use the system benefit from support for the wrist so that the fingers and thumb can move to regain function for day-to-day tasks.
Essentially the H200 system helps to improve the movement of the hand, including the range of motion. It reduces spasms and boosts circulation, which is an obvious benefit for rehabilitation. Additionally the H200 works to prevent atrophy of muscles while activities like reaching, grasping, opening and closing the hand are relearned.
The H200 system has the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the CE marking that shows a product has met the compliance requirements for it to be freely marketed in the European Economic Area.
