Product Highlight: Aspen Active™ P-TLSO
Product highlights from Elite Medical Supply will provide educational information on the recommended usages for each product that we carry. Today on the blog, we are featuring the Aspen Active™ Postural-TLSO.
The Aspen Active™ Postural-TLSO is a lightweight, adjustable brace designed to address the symptoms associated with poor posture often due to prolonged use of electronic devices/technology. While actively influencing a patient’s posture, the brace provides gentle support while activating postural stabilizing muscles.
This product helps train the body to hold neutral posture by concurrently stretching and strengthening the structures that have become tight and deconditioned over time due to poor posture.
The NEWmatix™ System provides a gentle reminder to the patient to pull the shoulders back and down, similar to a scapular squeeze exercise performed in physical therapy. This system is designed to activate muscles to achieve a natural neutral posture. The conveniently located air pump allows the user to inflate the NEWmatix™ System to their preferred pressure placing the spine in a proper neutral position.
Proper spinal alignment with the aid of active influence treatment.
The following product features help train the body to hold a neutral posture and correct negative posture conditions.
The P-TLSO is easily adjustable to fit a wide range of waist sizes. The side panels are marked with 4 sizes that range from 24 - 50 inches.
The sizing guide is used to determine which size a user should adjust their P-TLSO to for an effective fit.
