Restorative Medical Inc. Store Braces

Restorative Medical Inc. Store (Neuroflex) braces, sometimes referred to as a restorative splint or restorative brace, are typically prescribed to individuals suffering the effects of neurological injuries or diseases. This may include trauma involving the brain or spinal cord or diseases that generate involuntary muscle contractions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy or ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). What all these conditions have in common is something called neurological tone, whereby muscles are made to randomly contract and, over time, adapt to the new contracted position by permanently shortening.

Use of an appropriate orthopedic splint or restorative medical brace, such as those featured here in our RM Neuroflex Store, are designed to counteract these muscle contractions. They flex when the affected muscle contracts, moving with the contraction, creating resistance to the movement and reversing the action in a spring-like fashion. This brings the limb associated with the contracting muscle back to its original position, giving it no opportunity to adapt to the deformed, contracted state.
