PATIENT COMPLIANCE IS THE KEY ELEMENT TO THE SUCCESS OF THE REHABILITATION REGIMEN REGARDLESS OF THE TECHNIQUE USED, THE MANDIBLE MUST BE MOBILIZED FOR THE REHABILITATION REGIMEN TO SUCCEED
PROPERTIES OF THE IDEAL PASSIVE MOTION DEVICE FOR REHABILITATION OF TMJ FUNCTION: safe simple comfortable lightweight/portable gentle stretching precise patient control oral seal to prevent drooling no impressions necessary cost effective promote compliance with passive motion regimens
E-Z FLEX II passive motion device for TMJ, jaw muscles & surrounding tissues unique air cushioned pump mechanism designed to fulfill the ideal criteria to promote PATIENT COMPLIANCE developed by Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon known internationally for expertise & research on Temporomandibular Joint Disorders TM * * Produced by TMD LLC, Therapeutic Mobilization Devices
HIGH RATE OF PATIENT SATISFACTION AND COMPLIANCE WITH E-Z FLEX II DUE TO: safety low cost comfort control using unique air cushioning mechanism effectiveness ease of use decreased pain during/following use
E-Z Flex II is unique and offers great advantages over other exercise devices: Air cushioned force is safe, gentle and flexible Safety stops enable controlled progress toward improved jaw opening and function Modified syringe hand pump allows user to have hands in a relaxed natural position away from the mouth during use User can visually measure progress while using the device providing immediate feedback and control Sustained stretch can be achieved without pressing on hand pump Jaw muscle strengthening, with closure against gentle resistance can be performed by removing elastics. Unique system of elastics permits control of jaw muscle toning. The more elastics that are removed, creates greater resistance to jaw closure, permitting a controlled progression of toning the muscles of the jaw.
CONCLUSIONS mobilization is essential in the rehabilitation of patients with TMJ disorders E-Z FLEX II promotes patient compliance with passive motion regimens E-Z Flex II is safe, gentle and effective in restoring TMJ mobility and function
