DMO® Essentials Range

This range can be purchased for adults or children and is made up of the following options:

DMO® Essentials vest
Our vest design uses a combination of compression fabric and reinforcement panelling that works together to influence the posture of the shoulders, trunk and arms helping increase postural stability and distal function away from the torso.

DMO® Essentials single and double shoulder orthoses
Our single and double shoulder orthoses are intended to manage shoulder impairments in a unique construction that pulls either one or both the shoulders back, supports the shoulder blades and stabilises the shoulder joints, providing greater comfort, improved posture, and range of movement.

DMO® Essentials shorts
These lower body dynamic movement orthoses (DMOs) are designed to aid lower limb function and posture whilst increasing core and pelvic stability, helping improve internal and external hip rotation and provide pain relief.

DMO® Essentials leggings
In additional to the benefits offered by our shorts above, our leggings can improve hip and knee alignment and muscle function often leading to increased sensory awareness.

Both the leggings and the shorts can be purchased with the option of an open crotch for ease of toileting.

Colours
The DMO® Essentials range is available in black with beige as a pre-order option .
