SDO® (Sensory Dynamic Orthosis) is a custom made-to-measure Lycra® product, designed and produced to the finest detail to provide dynamic compression to increase sensory and proprioceptive feedback and provide musculoskeletal support. This garment can assist and lead to motor learning and neural integration. The SDO® can be used for the management of conditions with sensory deficit, low or high tone, hypermobility etc including CP, ABI, Cerebellar Ataxia, Stroke, MS and EDS. The evidence gathered through research and individual case studies have shown that wearing a made-to-measure Lycra® garment leads to an improvement in function. This is thought to be due to the stimulation of the somatosensory system through the proprioceptors of skin and musculoskeletal system leading to changes in tone; postural re-alignment, improved biomechanical advantage for muscle activation and enhancement of learning strategies.
