Jacov's Scoliosis no sorry, 'Superhero' Suit
Find out how our DMO® Custom Structural Scoliosis Suit helps Jacov stay active
Jakov was four when he first visited DM Orthotics in Redruth, UK. He has Scoliosis a condition where the spine twists and curves to the side caused by hypotonia the medical term for decreased muscle tone. This can often lead to a child feeling limp to hold, being clumsy or falling frequently. His mother Verdana says
“The suit improves Jakov’s posture and agility, it has made a big different to his life allowing him much greater freedom of movement and we have also noticed that he is much more confident, it has freed him to move however he likes, and he can now do whatever activity he wants.”
A testimonial about our Scoliosis Suit
Chloe was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 11 and at the time there was very little information available about the condition. We saw a spinal surgeon and were told that there were no alternative treatments and that surgery would be the only option once Chloe got older.
We searched for something that could help Chloe as she was in so much pain. She had physiotherapy for a period of time but they recognised that they were not specialists in Scoliosis. I found DM Orthotics later, through someone whose son had been receiving Lycra Orthosis treatment for a different condition and rang Martin. He was extremely supportive about Chloe’s situation and agreed to meet.
