Pediatric Neurological Dynasplint® Systems

The Dynasplint® Systems management program for the neurologically involved child can greatly reduce the cost of rehabilitation by eliminating the need for multiple splints due to growth and range changes, and by lessening the possibility of surgical intervention. As a take home therapist Dynasplint® Systems can deliver a daily individualized program of range of motion therapy and tone management at home. It is usually recommended that the patient use the Dynasplint® System for 6-8 hours of continuous stretching while at rest.

Features & Benefits

Dynasplint® Systems are a spring-loaded, dynamic splint that provides a low-load, prolonged-duration stretch for ROM therapy and tone management.

As an adjunct to a child’s physical therapy and/or occupational therapy programs, Dynasplint® Systems can deliver an additional 6-8 hours of continuous stretching, at home while the child is resting.

Dynasplint® Systems are available in infant, pediatric and youth sizes and are fully adjustable for length and girth, eliminating the need for multiple splints due to growth and range of motion changes.

Dynasplint® Systems can be used in place of serial casting or after serial casting to maintain and further the gains made by the casting program. Dynsaplint® Systems constantly stretch the child at his/her end range of motion, safely moving with the child during episodes of increased tone or spasticity; then the system gently and steadily stretches the joint back to the end range to continue a low-load, prolonged-duration stretch (LLPS). Static splints and casts do not move with the child and can lead to skin breakdown and vascular compromise.

Unlike most cylindrical casts, Dynasplint® Systems are removable, typically worn only 6-8 hours in bed at night while the child sleeps. Therefore, the child is able to use his/her extremity during the day for functional or therapeutic activities.

Dynasplint® Systems can be used before Botox® injections to facilitate better position for locating the injection sites.

Dynasplint® Systems can effectively be used to maintain and improve the gains achieved with Botox®, Baclofen™, and phenol motor point injections. Clinically, many physicians and therapists agree that Dynasplint® and Botox® are a “winning combination” by furthering the ROM gains, managing the tone, and in some cases, decreasing the frequency of injections, thereby decreasing the possibility of resistant antibodies forming.

Dynasplint® Systems can be used before a tendon release or a tendon lengthening to allow for better surgical outcomes.

Dynasplint® Systems can be used status post tendon release or lengthening to gently maintain and improve the gains achieved by these surgical procedures.

Dynasplint® can be an adjunct to a serial casting program. After a series of casting or at the end of the casting procedure, DSI can be applied for a long-term home management program. Unlike casting, Dynasplint® Systems are easy to apply and adjust. This will allow more valuable time for the therapist to give the patient during their therapy sessions. Dynasplint® Systems can be safely worn for 6-8 continuous hours during the course of the day or night maintaining ROM between therapy sessions.
