Dynamic Tape – The Biomechanical Tape
Developed by Australian Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist Ryan Kendrick, Dynamic Tape is a specially designed latex free high elastic tape that is completely different from rigid sports tapes, Kinesio Tex Tape and kinesiology tapes.
The unique properties and four way stretch allow for a truly biomechanical approach to taping.
Applied in a way that allows the elastic energy to mimic the action of injured muscles or to modify movement patterns, Dynamic Tape can be used to facilitate or inhibit, assist and resist or to offload. In addition to this biomechanical approach it has also proved extremely effective for lymphatic taping due to its durability, versatility and superior comfort. It is extremely soft, highly conformable, breathable and water resistant which makes it possibly the most comfortable athletic tape on the market.
• Enhance biomechanical efficiey by supporting and reinforcing muscles, tendons and ligaments alike
• Enhance biomechanical efficiey by assisting co-ordination, proprioception, balance and timing of activation
• Generate and transfer energy back in to the kinetic chain
• Improve circulation (blood and lymph) to assist rate of recovery and repair
The tape’s striated adhesive backing allows unrestricted motion whilst facilitating the responses above which can help users to continue with their activities or get back to them sooner. Dynamic tape can be applied in a variety of methods which are flexible and adjustable to suit user needs.

Formthotics – Custom Foot Orthotics
Formthotics custom foot orthotics are prefabricated insoles that can be gently heated to mould to the shape of the foot and shoe to form a close fit that provides greater biomechanical control, good functional support and stabilisation of the foot and lower limb.
3D milled (cut) from a unique thermoplastic ‘closed cell’ polyethylene foam, the insole can retain a new shape after it is heated, even after intense use. This is different to other prefabricated insoles typically made of an ‘open cell’ ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) which are compression moulded, a process that alters the foam cell structure and will always force it back to the original manufactured shape.
The lasting close fit and comfortable feel Formthotics insoles offer, minimises the users risk of irritations allowing for greater user compliance.
Scientific Literature & Clinical Insight.
The Formthotics insole range is based on scientific literature as well as theoretical and clinical insight from respected health professionals in the fields of Sports Medicine, Musculoskeletal Medicine, Podiatry and Physiotherapy.

Sorbothane – Maximum performance with every impact
Developed with leading professionals including physiotherapists, Sorbothane insoles can help limit the trauma caused to a body during exercise such as back problems, joint pain, tendonitis, fatigue fractures and knee pain. They help prevent the re-occurrence of old injuries and offer unrivalled comfort.
Shockwaves are created every time your foot hits the ground. Just walking can create harmful shockwaves that reverberate around the body at up to 70mph, causing serious damage to joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Sorbothane is scientifically proven to absorb an outstanding percentage of these shockwaves, repeatedly without performance degradation. Its unique visco-elastic material mimics the characteristics of human flesh, and at the moment of impact the Sorbothane polymer deforms changing its shape to disperse the shockwaves sideways, immediately returning to its initial form to be fully operational in time for the next impact.
• Sorbothane Shock Absorption - unique visco-elastic material changes shape on impact dispersing shockwaves sideways
• Anti-slip footbed - designed for improved performance
• Vented Midsole - minimises weight and maximises breathability
• Abrasion-resistant top sheet - enhances durability and wicks away moisture

StairSteady – A Step Towards Independence
Invented by Ruth Amos as part of a school project, the StairSteady is a simple device helping people with limited mobility that find climbing or descending stairs a little challenging but do not require a stairlift.
How does it work?
The unique steadying device is made up of a handrail attached to the wall and a handle that provides support while you climb or descend the stairs. The handle slides forwards locking into position when pressure is applied with the user then holding onto the handle and climbing the stair. The handle is used in the same way when coming down the stairs and provides additional security locking into position if the user should trip or fall into the handle.
How to use it
Stand with the StairSteady handle close to your body. Push the handle forwards so your arms are stretched.
The StairSteady handle locks as you apply pressure to it. Use the handle to pull yourself up as you climb the stairs. Repeat Stage one and two until you reach the top of the stairs.
The StairSteady handle works the same on the way down, providing additional security and support. Should you trip whilst descending, the StairSteady handle will immediately lock securely into position.
• Enables people to remain active and independent utilising the whole of their home
• Maintains mobility whilst providing security and support
• Discrete - an unobtrusive design that blends in with most decors
• When not in use the handle folds away discretely so doesn’t interfere with other users of the stairs
• Can be fitted in situations where a stairlift installation may not be possible such as narrow stairs
• When used on a flat surface rather than as a stair climber, it provides an alternative to parallel bars in the rehab setting where there is limited floor space

This robust reacher benefits from an ergonomically designed handle with a trigger that requires minimal finger extension and allows the use of all fingers for a more powerful grip. The short trigger design is ideal for anyone with arthritic fingers or a weak grip.RevoReach GripLock
This unique reacher has additional features, making it as easy to use as possible. The GripLock benefits from an innovative locking mechanism that allows the jaws to be locked in place once an item is gripped, enabling the user to concentrate their efforts on moving the object, rather than maintaining their grip of the item. There are three main functions of the lock:
• Standard Lock-The standard locking feature allows the lock to be engaged using either the thumb or hand to turn the locking catch. This allows the user to grip an object then engage the lock once they have achieved a secure hold
• Grip & Hold - This innovative function allows the lock to be set so that as the trigger is squeezed, the jaws automatically lock. This is ideal for anyone who lacks the dexterity to use the lock catch when gripping an item, and is also very useful for gaining a tighter hold on an item that has already been gripped
• Fine Tune Grip - a useful feature that allows the jaws to be locked half way so they have a smaller range of movement. This is a useful function when picking up smaller objects as it allows a more precise grip and allows the reacher to retrieve items from tight spaces

Whether chilled or heated, Pearl Technology holds the HOT or COLD temperature for the doctor recommended time of 20 minutes while conforming to your body to deliver the perfect relief from your aches and pains. Simply heat in the microwave or freeze in the freezer to use.
A DRUG-FREE WAY TO ASSIST WITH PAIN AND INFAMMATION
Hot and cold therapy are the two most common types of non-invasive and non-addictive pain-relief therapies for muscle and joint pain.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ICE THERAPY?
Ice therapy (a.k.a. cryotherapy) is one of the most common recommendations by doctors for injury prevention & recovery. Applying ice immediately after an injury or physical trauma (the sooner the better) constricts blood flow & slows bleeding/swelling. Ice therapy reduces pain & muscle spasm. Also, applying ice to the injured area decreases the metabolic rate of cells, which limits the risk of cell death after an injury and helps prevent long-term damage. You usually want to ice during the first 24 hours following an injury, when there is evidence of swelling and/or bleeding. Even if you don’t have an “injury,” it’s generally recommended to apply ice after any physical activity to lessen the effects of wear & tear on the body.
WHAT ARE THE BENFETS OF HEAT THERAPY?
Heat therapy increases circulation (blood flow), effectively relaxing muscles & easing movement. Stimulating blood flow to injured areas once swelling has gone down promotes healing & speeds recovery of damaged tissue. Heat should be introduced at least 24 hours after an injury, once swelling/bleeding has subsided. Since heat stimulates blood flow, it will actually worsen any swelling or bleeding if applied too soon. It’s recommended to apply heat prior to physical activity, to stimulate blood flow & warm-up muscles. Doing this will help prevent injuries during exercise.
