THE ADVANCED AND SAFE SOLUTION FOR NECK AND HEAD PAIN

THE NON- INVASIVE SOLUTION FOR NECK AND HEAD PAIN

About 15% of the world's population suffers from neck pain and headaches such as migraines and tension-type headaches. Traditional treatment is often invasive and, especially in the case of medications, expensive, ineffective and leads to intolerable side effects. However, cervical mobilization has been shown to be an effective therapy for reducing chronic neck pain and headaches. Non-invasive and has no side effects, and success is increased when the movements are constant, slow and repeated over a continuous period. Occiflex ™ provides exactly this treatment.

ENHANCING MIDRANGE MOBILISATION

Occiflex ™ is the first computer-controlled system that reproduces the movements you make in your cervical mobilization therapy.

Occiflex ™ is safe, comfortable and the user-friendly mobilization therapy that is effective both to increase the patient's range of motion and reverse sensitization of the central nervous system.

When given manually, therapy is often too short and there is also a risk that movements are performed too quickly, too large movements or even jerky when the therapist becomes tired.

Occiflex. Eliminates this risk by automating the mobilization movements, so that the treatment can be more consistent and longer.

YOUR EVALUATION, YOUR THERAPY

INCREASE ROM, REDUCE PAIN
Occiflex ™ therapy is non-invasive with the mild, sustained repetition that gradually brings the patient's central nervous system back to its natural painless physiological state. And as mobilization is very precise, the neck muscles can, over time, be stretched more accurately back to the original physiological length.

The patient's range of motion expands and as the treatment progresses, the patient experiences less neck pain and associated headaches. In clinical trials, pain was reduced by as much as 48%.

TRUE PHYSIOLOGICAL MOVEMENTS – EASILY RECORDED

Occiflex ™ stimulates movement in all directions and provides a real physiological movement simulation. During the initial evaluation, the patient uses a motion sensor that records both objective data to support your professional findings and the movements you make when defining the best mobilization path.

With the patient's head resting gently in an adjustable chair, the Occiflex reproduces the path, copying the movements you made within six degrees of freedom (6DoF): three axes of rotation and three directions of transmission.
Occiflex ™ can then automatically repeat the course you have created for a full 20-minute session, at a very low and constant speed ..

MEASURABLE RESULTS

Occiflex ™ can generate progress reports on the patient's pain reduction based on the Numeric Rating Scale, Neck Disability Index, CROM test and headache impact test. These reports provide the patient and referring physicians with goals and clear feedback on the results of treatment. And as the patient's CROM improves, you can easily customize mobilization therapy to increase movement and range, fine-tuning it to the patient's needs.

Occiflex ™ is designed for any athlete who handles neck or headaches, including:

 

  • Pain or headache specialists

  • Rehabilitation experts

  • Orthopedic surgeons

  • Osteopaths

  • Chiropractors

  • Physiotherapists

  • Manual therapists

 

PATIENT INDICATIONS

PATIENT INDICATIONS
Occiflex ™ therapy can be used for:


• Reduction of neck pain (including post-whiplash, mechanical,
idiopathic, cervicogenic)
• Increased range of motion
• Reduced disability, improved posture and muscle function

NO SIDE EFFECTS
The movements made by Occiflex ™ are so slow that in clinical trials some patients are barely aware of the head
being moved. This reduced the fear of movement and allowed them to relax. The combination of slow mobilization and relaxation meant that any possible side effects of mobilization such as nausea and dizziness were alleviated, and that a larger range of motion could then be achieved - with far less pain.

COMFORT AND SAFETY

Comfort and safety are crucial in the design of the Occiflex ™.
The patient's head is gently but not firmly supported. And as Occiflex moves very slowly, patients can lift their heads, or even sit up when they need to. This gives patients a greater sense of control and enables them to relax more deeply during therapy, further enhancing the effect.

PATIENT CATEGORIES AND ISSUES

Occiflex ™ offers a comfortable and effective therapy modality for:

 

Pain reduction
Occiflex is very effective for treating pain of Cervical-related problems. This includes:


• Pain related to conditions after whipping
Pain of mechanical origin. It can be associated with cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy,

or it may occur in isolation
• Idiopathic pain
• Cervicogenic headache

Increased range of motion


A limited ROM may be caused by numb structures in the cervical area.
A limited ROM is debilitating and often associated with cervical blockage.
• As these blockages exist over a long period of time, the impact on the patient's life is severe.

Occiflex is extremely effective in curing long-term movement limitations.

 

Reduced disability


• Several conditions that are responsible for reduced disability related to the neck, including posture, proprioception, and muscle and joint function, can be treated effectively with Occiflex.
