We saw a need for a flexible system that can be used as a diagnostic tool as well as a corrective and supportive device during rehabilitation. But not limited to that, the NRX® Strap can also be used a definite application on the patient. The controlled elasticity in the strap provides the opportunity to apply compression differently depending on the application.
If more support is needed but not necessarily compression, another layer can be fixed on top of the first one. The NRX® material can be cut with a pair of scissors and the textile surface has a rip stop function which even makes it possible to cut small holes in the material as use it as a dynamic extender.
The NRX® Strap is made from a closed micro cell CR
foam material that is mineral based, completely free
from latex and ETU. The surface is micro perforated
for ventilation and has a friction effect on the skin
which can enhance proprioception, muscle memory
and joint position sense.
The NRX® Strap comes in rolls that can be cut to
individual length. The material can easily be adjusted
individually to the patient and then secured with
the special micro hook. The advantage is that the
same construction is reusable on the same patient
first fitted on which also makes it easier for the
patient to re-apply compared to tape.
The NRX® Strap can be machine washed in 60
degrees C to maintain a hygienic safety on the patient.
