Two untrue phrases that we hear often:
- « Not now, it is better to wait until the nerve recovers, » provided that it comes back, there is no guarantee.
- « Pneumaflex ® 2 is for severe attacks or for patients already in a wheelchair. »
Remember that to this day no human intervention has ever given back mobility to « dead » members!
Unfortunately, some health care professionals are not curious enough to do research and to provide more assistance to their patients. If they were, they would contact me and suggest some tests for their patients with Pneumaflex ® 2.
When it comes to the « Pneumaflex ® 2 technology, » It is too bad that « the ignorance » of these professionals concerned and their discretionary capacity deprives their patients of the finality of service.
By applying only one standard for such and such case of figure and without concern for the medical purpose, these professionals can provoke a degradation of the problems to some patients. This degradation can make the symptoms last definitively.
It is quite obvious today, that in any case where there is a type of attack on the nerve (sciatic paralysis of the nerve, paralysis of the lifting muscles, paralysis of the external and internal sciatic poplity nerve), it is imperative TO MOVE your muscles as soon as possible and in the best conditions, but only if it is medically or surgically authorized (for example, a cast, continuation of a surgical operation).
The immediate movement allows an immediate fuctioning of the whole anatomical system: muscles, articulations, and the vascular system. This operation is extremely important to optimize a possible neurological recovery.
It is unfortunate to put the hypothetical recovery of a motor nerve on standby (sciatic paralysis of the nerve, paralysis of the lifting muscles, paralysis of the external and internal sciatic poplity nerve) without giving the maximum opportunity to obtain this recovery.
THE PARADOX :
Everyone agrees that it is immediately necessary to do the maximum amout of physical therapy after a neurological attack that includes a loss of control of voluntary movement. For example, to stir up and make the anatomy function as quickly as possible.
It is completely true and necessary!
THEN, WHY IMMEDIATELY AFTER WORKING APPROXIMATELY ONE HOUR PER DAY, TO PUT THE MEMBER IN A PLASTIC PRISON, WHICH COMPLETELY INVALIDATES THE DYNAMIC WORK AND ALL OF THE LONG HOURS WHICH FOLLOW IN A COURSE OF ONE DAY?
The ORTHOTIC « LIFTERS » in moulding
They are practically and systematically given to patients following an attack of the motor nerve with steppage foot (sciatic paralysis of the nerve, paralysis of the lifting muscles, paralysis of the external and internal sciatic poplity nerve).
The orthotic lifters make it possible to be reassured psychologically the first time a foot remains fixed at a 90° axis of the leg that will not fall any more and will not hang any more (but, it will be blocked in its « plastic prison » on the same time!), but again this will not give back a true walk by activating the muscles and the articulations.
They paralyse the leg and the foot in another way, which with time causes true physical degradation (articular, muscular, vascular and even psychological) sometimes with serious consequences.
These orthotics replace the leg, ankle and the foot. IT IS NECESSARY, ON THE CONTRARY, TO MAKE THE ANATOMY FUNCTION AND NOT TO REPLACE IT.
Pneumaflex ® 2
It is not a molded foot lifter as we might understand.It is a driven dynamic 3 dimensional technology, adaptable to each type of anatomy and the proper walk of each person.
This technology was conceived to make all of the anatomy work through a real walking diagram and in a completely natural way (which has already been lost or not). Pneumaflex ® 2 DOES NOT REPLACE THE LEG, THE FOOT, THE MUSCLES, BUT MAKES THEM FUNCTION BY HELPING THEM JUST WHEN IT IS NECESSARY WHEN WALKING OR RUNNING.
It is a complete biomechanical adaptation to each patient, just as the patients own fingerprints! That is why today, Pneumaflex ® 2 is an incomparable technology that gives excellent results. That is also why it would be sad not to give the benefits of Pneumaflex ® 2 to patients as soon as possible.
