ELEMENTS BODY LYCRA TRAINING LEVEL 1
Elements Body is an orthosis made of Lycra fabric, it is designed to give constant and consistent proprioceptive feedback through a combination of pressure and resistance. The function of our Elements Body Lycra garments is to improve posture and stability. This is achieved by providing increased pressure to the body through a snug custom fit. By increasing the deep sensibility, proprioceptive feedback is increased. The proprioceptive feedback may also improve the patient's fine motor skills and functional performance. Various reinforcements can be selected to optimise stability, movement and function.
