MeropeStyle® – Cap Bottle Opener
Open Capbottles safely. It is mainly the small everyday objects that seem to present unsurmountable obstacles. Besides being small, such objects are often slippery and unhandy, rendering every desperate attempt to ultimately open a screw top to failure. This failure is often due to the limited combined forces of the thumb and index finger. This is the right occasion to use the MeropeStyle® Screw – CapBottleOpener, successfully using the force of almost any finger of the hand, forcing the stubborn screw top to surrender and open.
MeropeStyle® – OmoRest®
Shoulder surgeries are known for their protracted healing process. In order to provide for undisturbed recovery, the affected limb requires fixation. The brace should allow for rapid access to the surgical wounds and should be easy to put on and take off, e.g. during physiotherapy. Therefore shoulder braces need to offer two important features: reliable immobilisation of the shoulder and easy access to the affected region.
MeropeStyle ® – Pediatric VarioRest®
Children have a natural desire to be active. Therefore they feel particularly uncomfortable wearing a plaster bandage which significantly restricts their activities. In contrast to plaster bandages, knee braces are light, comfortable and easy to adjust to various conditions. The MeropeStyle® Pediatric VarioRest® knee brace can be used after knee surgery, sprain, muscular od ligament injury, fracture or other conditions which cause complaints of the knee joint. The brace enhances healing and reduces the time required for physiotherapy. It may also be used to stabilise brittle bones. Immobilisation of the leg over a long period of time is not recommended though, as within even a few weeks this would worsen the osteoporosis, leading to further fractures. Therefore mobilisation is started as early as possible, the MeropeStyle® Pediatric VarioRest® knee brace offering considerable benefits over plaster bandages, as it may be taken off and put on again at any time.
MeropeStyle® – Thorafix®
Injuries and surgeries in the area of the diaphragm and ribs often require solid support of the entire affected region. This support needs to provide both, constant stability and sufficient elasticity to allow for thoracic mobility so as not to restrict free breathing of the patient. Different anatomical conditions of the patients require the brace to have flexible adjustment features. As the brace is used over a long period of time, the material used should be skin-friendly and breathable. The MeropeStyle® Thorafix® SurgIBinder™ Postoperativ Rib Fracture Brace meets all of these requirements. In contrast to orthopaedic braces this surgical brace enhances mobility, at the same time stabilising the surgical wound area. Despite the controlled compression it exerts, the brace allows for sudden expansive motions of the lungs for instance during coughing. Thus, the MeropeStyle® Thorafix® SurgIBinder™ Postoperativ Rib Fracture Brace allows for deep respiration, which is necessary in some therapies and has a relieving effect on the patient. Therefore the brace contributes to accelerated recovery, reduces pain and prevents pneumonia.
MeropeStyle® – UniRest ®
Meniscal surgeries and the treatment of fractures or inflammations of the knee joint involve immobilisation over a longer period of time. Depending on the complaints, the knee is immobilised in a 0° or 20° position. During the rehabilitation period, the brace can still be worn at night.
MeropeStyle® – VarioFlex®
Surgical treatment of the knee requires temporary postoperative stabilisation of the knee joint before starting subsequent intensive physiotherapy. In the immediate postoperative period, the joint must be kept stable and motion restricted. Four important ligaments have a stabilising effect on the knee joint: the MCL (medial collateral ligament) stabilises the knee on its medial side, the LCL (lateral collateral ligament) stabilises the knee on its lateral side. Furthermore the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) stabilise the joint centrally, the ACL lying in front of the PCL, both together building a cross. Ligament injuries lead to instability of the knee joint. Rupture of a collateral ligament affects the mediolateral stability (varus/valgus), whereas injuries to the cruciate ligaments influence the anteroposterior and rotational stability of the knee. The MeropeStyle® Proflex® knee brace supports and stabilises the knee after ligament injuries and surgeries while keeping the patient mobile.
MeropeStyle® – VarioRest®
Every leg has a different shape, depending on the size and weight of each individual patient. Some manufacturers therefore offer customised braces, which involves a high amount of work and effort, consequently leading to high cost. However, no evidence has been provided concerning the therapeutic benefit of such customised braces. Therefore ready-made adjustable braces represent a reasonable solution, both from the therapeutic and from the economic point of view. Nowadays meniscus injuries and cruciate ligament ruptures are often treated via an arthroscopic approach, which requires two tiny incisions only. Compared to open surgery, arthroscopies carry a reduced risk and preserve a maximum of tissue. One of the tiny incisions is made for the camera lens which provides an insight into the affected joint. The other incision serves as a pathway for the minimally-invasive instruments used to conduct the surgical intervention. Despite these small incisions, all surgical steps are performed as usual. For immobilisation during the first days after surgery we recommend the MeropeStyle® VarioRest® knee brace, our particularly flexible immobilisation brace.
MeropeStyle® – Surgical Shoe
In order to enhance rapid healing and minimize pain following foot surgeries, the affected foot needs to be protected from compression and jolts. This also applies to the treatment of other indications like diabetic ulcerations (gangrenes), which involves both immobilisation and protection of the affected area. In such cases protected mobilisation of the patient requires more than a bandage. The MeropeStyle® Trauma Post OP shoe is both water-resistant and breathable. Its soft padding protects the foot from compression or jolts.
MeropeStyle® – Forefoot Relief Shoe
Many injuries and diseases affecting the forefoot area require maximum relief of the metatarsal heads and the toes. This might be the case after surgery or during the treatment of e.g. diabetic ulcerations. With such indications, the weight needs to be fully transferred to the heel, relieving the forefoot from load and compression.
