Arm Supports overview

The Neater Arm Support unlike other arm supports has a uniqe power drive system, which provides power assistance to the user. The client needs very little movement or ability to use the mobile arm supports as the power drive system negates gravity and effortlessly lifts the arms to a functional position. The friction free arms enable a fluid movement capability and the sling frame geometry automatically lowers the elbow on raising to bring the hand level with the mouth.

NAS Assist

NAS Assist

The “Neater Arm Support – Assist” is a new device  from Neater Solutions to assist people with weak arms.  The Neater Arm Support is a powered device that lifts people’s arms up and down.  When the new assist mechanism is engaged, the user’s hand automatically moves closer to their face when their arm is lifted. This enables them to perform functions such as eating and drinking.

Its unique action enables users with weakness or tightness of the triceps to reach their mouth and face more easily for eating, drinking and hygiene activities.

At a press of a button the arm support raises, and then the wheel engages with the sloping surface to gently encourage the hand inwards and when at the top holds there. When lowering, the system smoothly disengages to allow full functionality.

This enhancement to the system is likely to be beneficial to clients with Motor Neurone Disease, for stroke therapy and for longer term users of the arm support with muscular dystrophy.
