How JAS ROM Therapy Can Help
If you have limited range of motion (ROM) in your joint following injury, surgery, or illness, and you’re not making improvement with therapy visits and home stretching exercises, JAS can help you get back on track to full ROM Recovery.
Used daily as part of your home exercise program, JAS devices provide you the necessary dosage of gentle, therapeutic stretch to make steady gains in joint motion. Adding JAS to your therapy program will speed your rehab progress, and has been clinically proven to prevent the need for surgery or manipulation under anesthesia for severe stiffness.
JAS Has the Right ROM Therapy Option to Meet Your Needs
Both Static Progressive Stretch (SPS) and Dynamic Splinting (DS) are time-honored and proven treatment techniques, used to permanently stretch shortened tissues and restore joint mobility. Both work by applying low intensity, long duration stretch, however each does so with differing forces and treatment protocols.
JAS lets you select the best ROM therapy option for you – SPS or DS – based on your symptoms, diagnosis, and therapy approach that fits your lifestyle. With five complete product lines to choose from: JAS SPS (Adult and Pediatric), JAS EZ Turnbuckle, international market JAS GL, JAS Dynamic and JAS Advance Dynamic ROM, JAS has you covered.
What Is Static Progressive Stretch?
JAS Static Progressive Splint (SPS) devices safely restore joint motion using stress relaxation and low-load stretch; the very techniques therapists use when providing hands on therapy in the clinic. By turning the SPS therapy knob, the joint is brought to a pain-free stretched position and held there for several minutes, to allow for the surrounding tissues to relax and lengthen. Once this occurs the joint is stretched and held again, and more lengthening is achieved. This process is repeated several times to complete a SPS treatment session.
Static Progressive Splinting Requires Less Wear Time.
Shorter treatment time means more time for active living! Over 30 published peer reviewed studies support a JAS SPS device wearing protocol of three 30-minute sessions per day for optimal results. JAS therapy will not interfere with your normal daily activities, or keep you awake at night. JAS devices are lightweight and portable, so JAS sessions can be done where and when is convenient for you; at home, work, even during travel.
Static Progressive Splinting Gives Patients Control
JAS devices give you total control in carrying out your ROM therapy. You control the degree of stretch at all times with an infinitely adjustable turning knob. Pain, risk of tissue injury, and muscle guarding are virtually eliminated as a result.
What is Dynamic Splint Therapy?
Dynamic Splinting (DS) uses spring tension to apply a constant, low-load, prolonged duration stretch (LLPS) to stiff tissues, to safely restore motion. The spring tension is set at a low, tolerable level and the device is then worn for several continuous hours. As tissues lengthen in response to the applied stress, the spring of the DS continuously adjusts to seek the patients new end ROM throughout the treatment session.
Dynamic Splinting Requires Longer Wear Time:
Suggested wearing protocols for Dynamic splints, such as the JAS Dynamic and JAS Advance Dynamic ROM product lines, range from 3-12 hours of continuous use per day. This wearing schedule has been recommended to achieve optimal and permanent gains in ROM, and is supported by multiple scientific and clinical studies for over 30 years.
Set It and Forget It with Dynamic Splint Therapy
There are no frequent adjustments required during DS therapy sessions. The tension is set once before donning, and the device spring adjusts as your tissues stretch. For patients who have difficulty with hand control, or prefer a hands-off treatment style, DS is ideal. And DS gives the option of overnight treatment, leaving waking hours free for normal day to day activities.
