Product Description

The VARILITE Band-It positions the lower extremities, and is ideal for individuals with poor lower extremity control, spasticity, impaired sensation, eversion/inversion malalignments, body-scheme deficits, and heel cord shortening. The Band-It is made with soft closed-cell foam covered in knit fabric edged with a nylon binding. The front closure is a high-strength, molded side squeeze buckle. The Band-It attaches to the footplate of a wheelchair.

VARILITE Band-It has a Dynamic Positioning Strap. Dynamic positioning allows freedom of ankle movement, which prevents joint stiffening. If the client has increased extensor tone, the dynamic component keeps the foot in place, while maintaining flexion at the ankle.
Dynamic positioning is achieved by adjusting the length of the webbing within the tension lock. For a dynamic effect, the webbing is left lax (Fig.5),while for a static effect, the webbing is pulled taunt through the tension

Size Selection: The Band-it is designed to secure around the ankle, with the body of the device extending over the top of the clients shoes to distribute pressure over a larger area. It is important that a client wear shoes and socks during Band-it use. Measure the circumference of the ankle, two finger widths above the malleoli (Fig. 1). When measuring, the client should be wearing shoes, socks and applicable orthoses.

Fasten Band-It: Align accent webbing with Achilles tendon and fasten buckle (Fig. 2). Buckle will not be centered. Adjust webbing using D-ring. Band-It should be snug, but not constricting (Fig. 3).

Adjust Dynamic Strap component: For a static effect, pull the webbing on the topside of the tension lock. This eliminates the Dynamic component (Fig. 4). To make use of the dynamic component, decrease the tension of the webbing (Fig. 5)

Note: The use of dynamic positioning should be based on the clients needs, desired positioning effect and therapists recommendations.
