DMO leggings

Provides

DMO Leggings have been designed to improve lower limb function and posture whilst increasing core and pelvic stability.
The DMO Leggings are created using a combination of elastomeric fabric and reinforcement panelling which re-align the legs and activate the inner core muscles required to hold correct posture.
 

Effective for
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Lower limb impairments
  • Low spinal muscle tone
Provides
  • Pelvic Stability
  • Improved lower limb stability and posture
  • Reduced external hip rotation
  • Increased sensory awareness
  • Improved posture
  • Reduced scissor gaiting
  • Improved muscle function
  • Pain relief
Features
  • Targeted compression to the hips and pelvis
  • Compression fabric provides the perfect balance between flexibility and support
  • Reinforcement panelling for strength and stability of leg positioning
  • Reinforcement options available for required knee position
  • Optional crotch opening

This product is custom made for a perfect fit. All fastenings, openings and reinforcements are individually prescribed according to your needs and preferences. To be worn under clothing.

DMO Orthosis

DMO Medical offers a comprehensive range of dynamic movement orthoses designed to aid the neurological and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal and postural conditions.  We pride ourselves on innovation and research in order to produce world leading products which improve quality of life for those we serve.

Our team of expert clinicians work closely with leading medical professionals to ensure that each product is suited to the needs of the individual. We provide a tailored, personal service from consultation to fitting.

Our orthoses work using strategically placed panelling which positions the body into improved postural alignment. This new biomechanical state combined with enhanced proprioception, stimulates and adjusts the neuro-sensory system, training muscles to work with improved tone, strength and performance.

All these benefits work towards a single goal – to improve function and encourage independence for the user.

Clinical information

Background and Purpose: This Level 1 exploratory study aimed to establish proof of concept of the effects of dynamic Lycra Orthoses (DLOs) on the gait of children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy.

Method: Replicated single case experiments employing an ABA methodology were carried out on 8 subjects (median age 5.5 years, range 3-13 years; 4 girls/boys) utilising quantitative / qualitative data collection. Outcome measures were: ten metre walking test (10MWT); physiological cost index (PCI); visual analogue scale (VAS) scoring of perceived gait changes; functional mobility changes using Patient Specific Functional Scale (PSFS); subject/carer perceptions recorded in daily diaries.

Results: Results identified following analysis of quantitative data indicated a treatment effect derived from the orthoses. Findings could be collaborated by participant subjective impressions and comments. Statistically significant (p<0.05) intervention-related improvements in gait velocity and gait consistency were identified respectively in 5/8 and 4/8 subjects. Power calculations supported the feasibility of a larger study to further investigate this orthotic intervention.

Conclusion: This study indicates that DLO leggings can confer beneficial effects on the gait of some children with spastic diplegia resulting from CP. These findings have implications for orthotic intervention with this subject group.

Results: Effects of dynamic Lycra® orthoses on children with diplegic cerebral palsy: a series of replicated single case experiments.
