Omo Neurexa plus – provides relief and alleviates pain
The Omo Neurexa plus provides noticeable relief and alleviates pain caused by the malposition of your shoulder joint. By bringing your shoulder into a better position, the orthosis combats the cause of your complaints.
With the Omo Neurexa plus, your shoulder is securely stabilised. This means you can fully concentrate on movement and gait training. As a result, you can begin rehabilitation as soon as possible and learn the right movement patterns from the very start.
The orthosis moves your shoulder into the proper position, which corrects your entire body posture – and has a positive influence on your gait. This helps you avoid excessive muscle strain on one side or overstretching nerves, ligaments and tendons.
The orthosis is made of soft, washable fabric with silicone strips on the inside. This prevents slipping and rubbing. The climate-regulating material also counteracts perspiration and makes the orthosis comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Thanks to its special design, you can put on the orthosis yourself with just one hand. Coloured snap fasteners make it easier to put it on correctly. Your therapist or O&P professional will adapt the orthosis to your individual needs and show you how to apply it correctly.
Back to life
Marleen had a stroke at age 20
A stroke at age 20 is quite unusual. But that’s what happened to Marleen, and she was in a coma for 14 days. When she woke up she could neither speak nor walk and was paralysed on one side of her body. An athlete, Marleen lost nearly everything at this point: her physical health, dancing hip hop, her boyfriend, her studies and her independence.
Against the odds, she managed to regain an active lifestyle with the support of her family. Today Marleen works as an office communication assistant at a health centre. She welcomes customers, sets up appointments and prepares documents. She also drives a specially adapted car and plays golf in her free time. Marleen relies on the Omo Neurexa plus shoulder orthosis for her many varied activities.
Despite her stroke, Marleen has managed to remain an upbeat, active person.
Marleen with the Omo Neurexa plus
Marleen has always been active in sports. Before her stroke she danced hip-hop; she now plays golf. But at just 20 years of age she was paralysed on one side of her body and could no longer speak nor walk. She was supported on her way back to an active life by her family, therapy and medical devices like the Omo Neurexa plus shoulder orthosis. Today, Marleen is independent once again. She goes to work, drives and is active in sports again.
Promoting movement after a stroke
Omo Neurexa plus for stabilisation after a stroke
The Omo Neurexa plus shoulder orthosis is part of the Neurexa product line. It was developed in close cooperation with physicians and therapists – especially for stroke patients. As a valuable medical device for rehabilitation, it promotes active movement.
Shoulder pain frequently occurs after a stroke or other illnesses. In this case the humerus is in an unfavourable position. The Omo Neurexa plus brings it back into the correct position, thereby eliminating the cause of the pain. This is essential in order to begin with early, targeted rehabilitation. Our objective is to help you reintegrate into your familiar social and work environment as quickly as possible.
How it works
The Omo Neurexa plus consists of two parts – a shoulder cuff and a forearm cuff. They are connected by two straps. The orthosis covers a large area in the shoulder region, which has a positive effect on what are known as proprioceptors. These perceive how you move with your shoulder in space and what position you assume. This improves your overall body posture, which in turn has a positive impact on a smooth and uniform gait. A muscle stimulation pad, which you can easily attach inside the shoulder orthosis with a hook-and-loop fastener, makes it possible to provide additional stimulation for weakened muscles.
