The World of SDO® Sensory Dynamic Orthosis
How does dynamic Lycra® work?
Sensory Dynamic Orthosis - SDO® garments are expertly designed to provide dynamic compression which increases sensory and proprioceptive feedback and reinforcement panelling to improve musculoskeletal stability and alignment.
Medigarments Ltd specialise in the design and manufacture of sensory dynamic orthosis, Class 1 medical devices to manage neurological and musculoskeletal conditions and improve proprioception. Manufactured from premium-quality Lycra® to the exact measurements of each patient, Medigarments skillfully integrates conventional tailoring practises with twenty-first-century CAD/CAM technology.
SDO® garments are designed to deliver continuous and consistent therapeutic pressure to improve fluency of movement and neural integration. SDO® garments also enhance functional performance by reducing tremors and improving fine motor skills whilst the biomechanical reinforcements help to improve musculoskeletal stability and alignment. This has a positive effect on pain and in most cases, improves motor output, assists with normalisation of tone, increases independence and may even enhance handling and transferring with improved breathing and speech.

Why choose SDO® Sensory Dynamic Orthosis?
Dynamic orthoses are clinically proven to improve function, coordination, muscle tone and proprioception through the provision of dynamic compression.
The base suit provides the neurophysiological component by increasing proprioceptive and cutaneous feedback and enhancing normal movement.
The reinforcement panels work biomechanically providing musculoskeletal realignment, joint stabilisation and resistance.
