New sensory product range launched
DM Orthotics is pleased to announce the launch of its latest product range, DMO® Sensory.
As the name suggests our DMO® Sensory range, (DMO stands for Dynamic Movement Orthosis) has been specially designed for adults and children with sensory difficulties. The products can aid both overactivity or low endurance presentations with the proprioceptive input from the tightness and compression helping increase spatial awareness and concentration.
Proprioceptive input to the brain can be a powerful tool in helping self-regulation and the tightness of these designs can help improve the body’s ability to sense its location, movement and actions. This can lead to a greater sense of calm, enabling children in particular, to settle and engage more effectively – for instance in the classroom.
Our dynamic movement products are made from elastomeric fabric to ensure a close fit and should be worn next to the skin. DM Orthotics recognises that how clothes feel is often an important consideration amongst people with sensory issues, so the seams are designed to be on the outside to ensure a smooth surface next to the skin. Improving the inside feel of the product can help reduce tactile sensitivity.
The DMO® Sensory range consists of:
- A pre-sized vest and leggings that only requires one measurement to be taken (available in black, beige or white).
- A made-to-measure vest, suit and leggings for those who have more exacting sizing needs.
We recommend building up wear time gradually over a week doubling the amount of time daily until worn throughout the day. e.g. 1st day – 1 hour, 2nd day – 2 hours, 3rd day – 4 hours up to a total of 8 hours a day.
Made-to-measure is available in the UK from our own clinical specialist team at DM Orthotics, your local clinician (NHS or private) or our valued partners and outside the UK from selected DMO Worldwide Partners.
Our pre-sized products are available via our online shop in the UK, USA and Ireland, more countries will be added soon.
