The Benefits of SDO Garments

Assessment kitDelivering a powerful combination of dynamic compression and musculoskeletal support, Sensory Dynamic Orthosis (SDO®) garments offer a wide range of benefits to the wearer, from increased sensory feedback to improved postural stability. Clinicians are able to make a decision whether the garments should be worn based on assessment garments, which are also available from Jobskin.

SDO® garments are made to measure from high-quality Lycra and are produced to incredibly high standards down to the last detail. While being worn, the SDO® gives the effect of constant therapeutic handling by providing constant and consistent compression in addition to stretch, support and sensory information. All of this helps towards motor learning and neural integration.

Clinical observations and data collected show that the wearing of SDO® garments lead to a definite improvement in postural control, as well as function and positioning as a result of musculoskeletal alignment, proprioceptive and sensory feedback and proximal stability.

The clinical application of  SDO® garments to conditions including cerebral palsy, spina bifida, dystonia, joint laxity and multiple sclerosis have demonstrated a positive response. The effectiveness of managing postural control and alignment is currently being identified in patients following spinal injuries and adults following stroke. SDO® garments have also been used successfully in patients with conditions affecting joint stability and sensory processing (such as Elhers Danlos Syndrome, benign hypermobility and ASD).

Jobskin are dedicated to providing a variety of options to enhance patient compliance and independence. The company provides choices in fabric, reinforcement panel and thread colours; also motifs and bindings, these are all provided absolutely free of charge to produce a completely personalised garment.
