Robot Arm™ Stabilizers start out as a flat sheet and are formed into a cylinder around the arms or legs. The cylinder prevents elbows and knees from bending, thus preventing sudden, unsafe movements. The stabilizers are easy to apply and to remove, and are non-threatening for patients and parents.
We have had the elbow and knee stabilizers for many years, with a 2-sided Velcro® construction. Customers loved the concept, but the material was not quite substantial enough and tended to allow bending on the part of stronger patients. We heard you!
Our new construction is lightweight yet far less susceptible to bending and has a foam interior for patient comfort. We are not quite finished with our testing, but will have these handy items available soon, so we wanted to let you know they are on the way!
