How Does the Omo Neurexa Plus Help with Shoulder Pain?

The Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis was created with hemiplegic patients in mind, which means that it has been specifically designed to support your shoulder and relieve pain where it exists only on one shoulder. It repositions your shoulder into a more suitable position, while also improving your overall body posture to improve your gait.

Technically speaking, when you've dislocated your shoulder, the disclocation of the shoulder joint from the socket can cause shoulder pain. The Omo Neurexa Plus alleviates this pain by correctly aligning the humerus head with the joint socket.

What Conditions Is the Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis For?

The Ottobock Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis has been designed to combat shoulder pain and dysfunction (including subluxation) following a range of ailments. Suitable conditions and injuries include the following:

  • Acute joint pain
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Cervical disc prolapse
  • Disclocation
  • Hemiplegia
  • Peripheral nerve damage
  • Stroke
  • Subluxation

If you are unsure about whether or not the Mo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis is the right support for you, we recommend consulting your doctor or another medical professional for guidance.

How Do I Wear the Ottobock Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis?

Designed for easy application by individuals with the use of only one shoulder, the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis consists of just two main parts: the shoulder cuff and the forearm cuff. These are connected by two straps, allowing you to slip your arm into the forearm cuff before arranging the shoulder cuff into place.

The orthosis covers a larger area in the shoulder region, and the muscle simulation pad attaches inside the orthosis with a hook-and-loop fastener to provide additional stimulation for weakened muscles. Please see the PDF below for a guide to putting on the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis.

Ottobock Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis Application

Can I Put on the Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis with One Hand?

Absolutely! The Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis has been specifically designed for users with use of only one shoulder, and this therefore means that you can put the orthosis on by yourself with only one hand. Coloured snap fasteners assist with this, and your therapist can adapt the orthosis to your own needs to make it easier for you to apply.

You can watch the video below to see a real-life application of the Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis. The model demonstrating the application in the video has suffered with severe shoulder, elbow, and hand limitations for a number of years.

How Does the Omo Neurexa Plus Stabilise My Shoulder After a Stroke?

The Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis was designed alongside physicians and therapists for stroke patients. Following a stroke, the humerus moves out of position, and the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis brings it back into the correct position to eliminate that cause of pain. For some patients, this is an early form of targeted rehabilitation following a stroke. 

Can I Wear the Ottobock Omo Neurexa Orthosis for Rehabilitation?

The Omo Neurexa Orthosis can be worn for and during rehabilitation. As it securely stabilises the shoulder, you can then concentrate fully on movement and gait training, beginning your rehabilitation as soon as possible.

How Does the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis Help with Posture?

As the Omo Neurexa Shoulder Orthosis correctly positions your shoulder, this in turn corrects the posture of your body. This has a positive influence on your gait, preventing the risk of one-sided excessive muscle strain, or the overextension of nerves, ligaments, and tendons.

What Are the Materials of the Ottobock Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis?

The Ottobock Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis is made of soft and washable fabric with silicone strips on the inside to prevent slipping and rubbing. The climate-regulating materials counteract perspiration for improved comfort throughout the day.

How Do I Wash the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis?

The Omo Neurexa Plus Shoulder Orthosis can be machine washed at 40˚C. Do not dry clean, tumble dry, or iron the orthosis.

Is the Omo Neurexa Plus Orthosis Eligible for VAT Relief?

The Ottobock Neurexa Plus Orthosis may be eligible for VAT relief. Please see our VAT relief page for more information.
