Manufactured in the UK by Beagle Custom Fabrication, the Head Up Brace is a truly unique design. If able, the Head Up Brace can permit the wearer to freely rotate the head, allow anterior-posterior flexion-extension and allow pelvic movement, whilst fully supporting the head and upper cervical / thoracic region.
Motor Neurone Disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis are life-debilitating conditions that up until now have had little or no aids to assist with daily living. This was the challenge brought to our team here at Beagle Orthopaedic from the NHS Innovation Team at Musgrove Park, Taunton. Following several patient trials and thus, product design changes, we are very excited to introduce what we believe to be a unique and life-changing product, the “Head Up™ Brace”.
Most of the current designs on the market are based on the concept of a collar, but neck weakness is only part of the condition and it is usually accompanied by weakness in the shoulder region and the long back muscles. The Head Up™ Brace is designed differently and takes into account all symptoms to provide a true life enabling aid.
