Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
In their commitment to feature the most innovative medical orthopedic products currently available on the market, MMAR Medical is proud to announce a strategic distribution partnership with Restorative Medical, Inc (RMI). RMI is best known for designing and manufacturing state-of-the-art contracture management orthotic devices, commonly referred to as splints and braces. These products are highly effective in treating patients with significant lost range of motion (ROM) resulting from prolonged immobilization, as well as conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease.
RMI revolutionized the contracture management field by introducing the NeuroFlex® technology method for treating contractures. This restorative approach to contracture healing is a departure from the traditional orthopedic methods and splinting used for managing contractures. When the limb or body part has neurological tone, it must be allowed to contract. RMI’s NeuroFlex® technology allows this movement, but with tension – then returns it to the pre-set position of slight stretch. Typically in 15 to 20 minutes, this treatment will allow the area to reach a relaxation by working with the Central Nervous System. Only after the tone is relieved can the shortened tissue begin to be relengthened – with the same splints. RMI stresses the difference in Restorative and Orthopedic conditions and the required differences in the technology of the splints. Together, MMAR Medical and RMI have goals to not only correct contractures, but also to prevent today’s all-too-common deformities by fitting RMI technology splints as soon as neurological tone begins. If tone is continually relieved, shortening of tissue will be prevented.
MMAR Medical is grateful to Restorative Medical Inc. for their invaluable expertise as well as their philanthropic service to those in need of contracture treatment around the globe.
