PROPRIOCEPTIVE INSOLES

by Springer

NEURO PROPRIOCEPTIVE INSOLES

SENSORIMOTOR INSOLES FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

Neurological diseases are complex and often associated with considerable restrictions in everyday life. PROPRIO® insoles can help improve walking and walking ability in this context.

1 STABILISATION

Gait stabilisation

2 RELAXATION

Relaxation with increased tension on the Achilles tendon

3 TENSION REDUCTION

Reduction of muscle tension in the calf

4 PERCEPTION

Improve the perception of the foot sole

THE SUITABLE SOLUTION FOR COMPLEX PROBLEMS

Neurological disorders often involve a high degree of impairment in everyday life. For many patients, a defined goal is to achieve the greatest possible independence and independence in everyday life. For this to succeed, the ability to walk and walk is an important prerequisite. Since neurological diseases are almost always associated with muscular over- or under-stresses, sensory motor insoles can be helpful in addition to physiotherapy. The PROPRIO® insoles stimulates the sensors of the body perception (proprioceptors). Muscles are stimulated or relaxed, the gait pattern is stabilised, and the patients are often able to gain a foothold in the truest sense.

SYNDROMES

PROPRIO® insoles can be a useful supplement to the therapy, amongst other, for the following syndromes:

Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)

Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)

Trisomy 21 is a gene variant that can lead to limitations in physical and mental development.

How the children develop is not predictable. The variants range from largely independent adults to those who depend on the help of others for a lifetime.

Most patients with trisomy 21 have in common the fact that they have a very limp, connective tissue-weak foot, which leads in the movement to an erroneous load in the body axes.

If you have patience, these patients react very effectively to the stimulation of a PROPRIO® insoles. The foot can usually be stabilized muscularly well. It must be noted that the effect is sometimes only visible after several months.

Numbness

Numbness

Numbness in the feet often has its cause in a reduced sensory perception, triggered by a variety of incidents, e.g. A chemotherapy, a polyneuropathy, or even an accident, a back injury or a herniated disc. The aim of a supply of PROPRIO® insoles is to improve the reflective perception of the sole of the foot and to create an own stability in the ankles.


PROPRIO® INSOLES ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR DIABETIC PATIENTS

Restless legs syndrome (RLS)

Restless legs syndrome (RLS)

RLS is a neurological disorder characterized by tingling, heat, and pain in the legs, accompanied by a strong urge to move. RLS only makes itself felt during rest periods or inactivity. Symptoms are partially or completely improved by movement, especially by walking and walking – at least as long as this activity continues.

Since the causes of this disease are not clarified, the affected persons usually have a long path of suffering behind them. There are already positive experiences of those who have been treated with PROPRIO® insoles. The aim is to reduce the muscle tension in the calf and thus contribute to the relief of the symptoms. A therapy approach without side effects.

Gait safety

Gait safety

Transient insecurity is a common disorder of neurological diseases and can have different causes. What is common to all is that the central nervous system can not sufficiently regulate the movement. Because the muscles are not properly controlled, many sufferers have an uncertain feeling while walking and stick with the tip of their feet.

Often, PROPRIO® insoles can help to stabilize the gait and prevent stumbling. In doing so, it is necessary to first determine the therapeutic goal with the treating physiotherapist and then to carry out the modulation of the PROPRIO® insoles. Depending on the disease pattern, the muscular stimulation varies.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

MS is an inflammation occurring in the brain and partly also in the spinal cord, which is caused by the attack of corporeal defense cells on the myelin sheaths of the nerves. By destroying these markings and by the swelling caused by the inflammation the conductivity of the nerve cells is reduced.

In many cases symptoms such as numbness in the arms and legs, feeling of tension around the joints, pain but sometimes also reduced sensitivity occur. One consequence is that the affected persons develop a very uncertain gait.

With PROPRIO® insoles an improvement of the foot stability and a subjective improvement of the gait safety can be achieved.

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson’s disease

Typical gait: shy, small steps in Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s disease is a slow-moving disease characterized by the dying off of the dopamine-producing nerve cells. Dopamine is the messenger that transmits impulses from one brain to the other. Simply put, the dopamine ensures that sensory signals are connected to the motor plane. This is extremely important for motion control, which is disturbed in a Parkinson’s disease.

The approach of a sensorimotor supply with PROPRIO® insoles is aimed at combating the typical resting tremor (trembling). Here, the technician tries to shape the insert in such a way that the muscles of the legs, which are constantly overlapping, are relaxed by modulations in the forefoot. Thus, small improvements can often be made with respect to the gait safety, e.g. when climbing the stairs.

Foot weakness after stroke or cerebral haemorrhage

Foot weakness after stroke or cerebral haemorrhage

A stroke or cerebral haemorrhage often leads to neurological deficits which limit the motor system due to the damage to the nerve cells in the affected brain area. In patients who have an incomplete paralysis of one half of the body after the stroke, a PROPRIO® treatment can be introduced into the treatment process in consultation with the physiotherapist.

A typical characteristic is to improve the activation of the foot-lifting musculature. In many cases the foot is “tilted” in the outer edge. As a result, the muscle, which is responsible for raising the tip of the toes, can not function fully. The PROPRIO® insoles ensures that the foot is placed in the correct position and the foot outer edge is raised.

However, sometimes the supply of insoles is not sufficient to stabilize the foot and knees and to stimulate the foot lifting. Then there are various possibilities for the orthopedic tradesman to strengthen the positive effect of a PROPRIO® insoles by different bandages, rails or orthoses.


DIFFERENT FOOT BEHAVIOURS:


Patients with foot weaknesses are not able to lift the toes correctly when walking, due to one-sided paralysis.

Paresis

Paresis

Typical foot positions

Paresis is the slight, incomplete paralysis of a muscle, a muscle group or a limb. PROPRIO® insoles can help reduce tonus in calf muscle. Thus, they counteract a pointed foot pattern and walking in the knee flexion. At the same time, a stimulation of hypotonic – that is, weak muscles – is possible via the hindfoot potting. In patients with hemiparesis, a very dysbalanced gait pattern is observed, which is to be better harmonized by different liner profiles on the left and right sides.

The orthopedic technician has to determine to what extent the positive effect of a muscle stimulation by PROPRIO® insoles can be supported by a dynamic orthosis.


TYPICAL PARESIS POSITIONS:


CASE STUDY

Nico had a severe cerebral haemorrhage when he was 29. After few operations and induced coma, right-side hemiparesis, spasticity’s and muscle weakness remained. He learned again to walk but with a considerable compensation over the unaffected body half. He had also frequent falls and muscle fibrosis.

Here you can see his improvement after starting using the Proprio® insoles
