The Bamboo Brace is a dynamic elbow splint for children with special needs that encourages extension of the elbow at more favorable angles in order to learn gross and fine motor skills as well as prevent undesired oral/facial interaction.
The Bamboo Brace is sold with 5 flexible and interchangeable support stays of varying resistance. There are 4 different size options which fit children from as young as 2-3 months up to about 18 years of age.
As a rehabilitation tool, The Bamboo Brace is excellent for both cases of spasticity (i.e. cerebral palsy) and weakness (i.e. low muscle tone, Down syndrome). In both situations, the dynamic re-alignment of the elbow assists children in gaining strength and control of key joints and musculature that are critical to the development of gross and fine motor skills.
As a flexible yet effective deterrent, The Bamboo Brace also prevents unwanted interaction of the child’s hands with the head, neck, and face for a variety of situations including mouthing, hand wringing, post cleft lip and palate surgery, autism and Rett syndrome.
