Strokes: What You Need To Know

Without proper orthotic treatment and early intervention, a stroke can leave patients with significant quality of life issues. Spasticity includes muscle stiffness and spasms, and can make it difficult to straighten one’s arms, legs, and fingers. This can lead to painful Musculoskeletal Contractures, or a loss of motion in a patient’s joints.

Early intervention with Anatomical Concepts’ ELLIOTT™ Patient Management System and the E-ROM™ Elbow Orthosis can alleviate a stroke victim’s pain by 50%, reduce need for joint surgery, and help to ease muscle back to their natural state. Ask your doctor if the ELLIOTT™ or E-ROM™ Orthoses are right for you.

 

Ask your Doctor for the right Orthosis!
