Eight types of PANat splints

Effects and use

Air Splint in use

1. Easy positioning

Splints enable positioning exactly as needed. At the same time, they stretch the muscles and relax the soft tissues. Less demanding, several times a day.

Positioning patients with spasticity is rarely possible as it would be ideal.

The limbs return to the wrong position after a few minutes. Air splints save time and make easier work for caregivers.

2. Maintain exercise results

Splints maintain the results of the achieved rehabilitation. Often until the next physical therapist visit, so you're not "starting over".

Splints prevent shortening. They help maintain hard-earned progress.

After rehabilitation, it lasts approximately 30 minutes in the body. effect of exercise. Positioning in the newly reached position during these 30 min. prolongs the effect of rehabilitation.

3. Quality training at home

Air splints hold the limb in a position that could only be achieved with the assistance of a therapist. Therapists can give patients exercises to do at home that they would normally not be able to do on their own.

Correct limb position is essential for quality training. With a splint, both the therapist and the patients are more confident that they are not exercising incorrectly at home.

Independent exercise with a splint increases the patient's motivation. We train PANAt Therapists who will teach you everything you need.

4. Support of limbs

Air splints help with support. It is necessary for many common actions. At the same time, it is the prevention of overloading the healthy side of the body, scoliosis and other complications.

The muscles in the splint are not passive. They participate in the support, activate themselves, strengthen themselves, and thus progress can occur.

Help with support is very important when learning to stand and walk again. Air splints give patients confidence - they improve and speed up training.

5. Intensive rehabilitation

The patient concentrates on one specific movement - strength training - simpler exercise environment - motivation to repeat - clear instructions - exercise at home.

Splints allow the patient to better orient himself in his own body. A patient with the whole arm in a splint is more clearly aware of its position in relation to the rest of the body.

6. Relief and reduction of swelling

PANat air splints reduce limb swelling and provide relief. They do not solve the cause of this disease, but they make daily functioning easier for patients in the long term.

Splints relieve unpleasant sensations in the limbs caused by spasticity and immobility.

External compression with a splint reduces high pressure in the venous system of the limbs. The pressure improves the return of blood towards the heart.

7. Relaxing of soft tissue

1. Pulling and twisting, similar to stretching.

2. Actively when exercising in a splint.

3.Myofascial technique - Fascia and subcutaneous tissue are released thanks to the principle of the barrier and the subsequent phenomenon of melting.

Most rehabilitation approaches concentrate on patient movement. The relaxation of the tissues in the splints also prepares the patient for movement.

8. Prevention of contractures

Contractures occur where there is no alternation between the contraction phase and the muscle relaxation phase. PANat splints help induce the relaxation phase several times a day, according to the patient's needs.

PANat splints help to overcome the spastic reflex - the tendency of the muscle to contract when it is stretched = normalization of muscle tension.

The entire muscle chain is stretched in the PANat splints. For example: from the pectoral muscle to the fingertips - from the ischial bone to the toes.

9. Development of motor skills

PANat splints are very helpful in rehabilitation with children. They help children better understand the exercise and calm down unintended movements. Splints allow the therapist to support the child in his ontogenetic development.

For some children, the immobilization and pleasant pressure in the splint has a calming effect. The therapist thus has the opportunity to use gentler rehabilitation techniques and to have a longer effect on the child.

The Spirála Center has been integrating the PANat method with other rehabilitation concepts (Vojta, PNF, Bobath, Petö, Therasuit...) for 18 years. We pass on our experience to PANat therapists during our Courses.

10. Enhanced perception of the limb

After CMP comes the tendency to "forget" the affected side. A strong sensation from the entire surface and depth of the limb compressed by the splint activates the patient's CNS.

A patient with an arm in a splint is more easily aware of its position in relation to the rest of the body - this leads to more frequent involvement of the limb in activities.

The perception of the limb supports orientation in space and new movement strategies.

11. Maintain progress

PANat splints adjust so that, unlike other splints, they fix the limb in the best position at the given moment - maintaining the progress achieved.

The splint does not lose its corrective function with increasing advances. Therefore, one PANat plate can be used in all phases of long-term rehabilitation.

Stretching in the splint is intense even for completely healthy people. Therefore, we recommend that everyone who participates in the rehabilitation of the patient first try the splint on themselves.

12. In collaboration with other therapies

Vojt's method - the splint helps to set the foot in the right position - it is easier to trigger the reflex. The plate has a hole at the appropriate point on the heel.

Vojt's method - the splint helps to set the spastic forearm in the correct position and keeps it there until the reflex is triggered - the therapist does not have to interrupt the treatment in other places for correction.

Practicing climbing on all fours - phase of ontogenetic development.

Bobath - the therapist leaves the stabilization of the arm on the splint - so he can go behind the patient and devote himself to the correct execution of the exercise.

Bobath - Thanks to dahs, patients with insufficient strength in their limbs can perform more exercises from among tried and effective methods of rehabilitation.

Bobath -the foot splint helps ensure quality support - the foot does not roll in/out. The elbow splint allows the patient to lean back and engage the entire muscle chain in movement.

PNF - Splint helps to perform a diagonal with a correctly adjusted arm, without pathological flexion.

Mojžíšová - the correct execution of the exercise is based on the support of the feet. The splint helps keep the foot and toes stretched, the arch uncollapsed, strengthens the ankle and relaxes the calf.
