* Measure each child according to the Sizing Guidelines for a good fit, never select a size for your patient based on "eye-balling" the SPIO® Orthosis.
* When donning the TLSO, attach one shoulder strap and the same side panel to the neoprene back.
* With child sitting or lying on their back, slide the child’s arm through the fastened opening and attach the other shoulder strap.
* The child can be standing, sitting or lying down on their back, depending on the child’s comfort level.
* Place the child on their stomach on your lap or on the floor (sitting, standing or kneel-stand are also possible).
* To attach the side panel, pull the vest down over the hips and wrap the panel snugly around the child.
* Fasten the crotch strap so it is snug, not tight.
* The crotch strap is designed to prevent the vest from riding up.
* The vest should fit snugly and firmly. You may have to adjust it a few times after the initial donning to optimize the fit.
* If you slip your hand under the abdominal area, with proper tension, you should feel a snug compression.
* Allows for 6 cm of adjustment.

Barss, Trevor et al. Effects of a compression garment on sensory feedback transmission in the human upper limb J Neurophysiol 120: 186 –195, 2018

  • 25 neurologically intact participants
  • Major finding is that a customized compression sleeve worn around the elbow joint alters reflex excitability and improves reaching accuracy.
  • This alteration in excitability occurs in cutaneous and muscle afferent sensory pathways and across multiple movement tasks.
  • Compression apparel may assist as a type of “filter function” of tonic and nonspecific mechanoreceptor information leading to increased precision and movement sensitivity around the joint where compression is applied.
  • Double Layer Lycra/Nylon Fabric
