The Omo Neurexaplus shoulder orthosis is a medical device that assists in the rehabilitation of patients who are suffering from shoulder pain or dysfunction. The Omo Neurexaplus shoulder orthosis is particularly helpful for patients after a stroke or injuries to the central or peripheral nervous system. Its predecssor, the well known, Omo Neurexa orthosis has been developed into the Omo Neurexaplus shoulder orthosis. The Omo Neurexaplus shoulder orthosis can now be applied by patients themselves with one hand.
The Omo Neurexaplus plus facilitates active rehabilitation. The main aim of the Omo Neurexaplus is to correctly position the arm without limiting its movement. Patients who has hemiplegia often suffer with shoulder pain. Also in case of flaccid paralysis, the humeral head can often be poorly positioned (subluxation); which results in pain, reflexive muscle issues and secondary joint damage.

Use & Application
The Omo Neurexaplus is recommended to be and can be used at an early stage in rehabilitation, along with functional and specific muscle training and physiological movement of the arm. Although the orthosis is also an excellent medical device for later in the rehabilitation process as well.
The Omo Neurexaplus must be adapted to the patient by a therapist or orthotist and for the initial donning of the orthosis, this should also be performed by the therapist or orthotist. However depending on the severity of the disability, the patient may be able to apply the orthosis themselves subsequently. Before attempting this, the patient, as well as their carers and relatives, must be provided with detailed instructions regarding the proper use of the orthosis.
Sizes: Proper sizing and application are key factors in achieving optimal functionality. The product is available in six sizes (XXS–XL) for the right and left sides.
