The OraStretch press jaw motion rehab system is a handheld unit designed to stretch a user's jaw to treat trismus, dysfunction and hypomobility. The device uses passive motion to stretch the user's jaw, joint and facial tissues for increased mobility, flexibility, and function.
The OraStretch press device provides a curved, anatomically correct stretch for patients to treat or rehabilitate their jaw and temporomandibular joint. The OraStretch press can be used for stretching, passive motion, and muscle strengthening. By utilizing the OraStretch press, a user can increase their range-of-motion, improve their jaw and joint function, and reduce swelling and pain.
With continual and diligent use of the OraStretch press, a typical patient can gain 1-2 mm per week in overall range of motion, with short-term gains of 1-4 mm immediately after stretching sessions. Use the OraStretch press daily as directed by your doctor. Your recovery depends on your commitment to rehabilitation and is the only way to assure yourself a full, functional recovery.
The standard and pediatric versions come with bitepads that are 1/8" thick and stiff. These foam pads work to hold the user's teeth in place while they are using the device. We also have edentulous pads for patients with dentures on the Standard version
which can be directly used on the soft tissues of the mouth.
Compared to other jaw motion rehab systems, the OraStretch press, opens 20% wider, is about 50% smaller and lighter, and patients don't have the continuing expense of replacement pads.Service Offers:

"Hi CranioRehab gang-
I want to let you know that I saw my patient today, and he has increased his jaw ROM 10 mm since he got his OrasStretch press! He is very pleased with his progress and with the device, and I really appreciate you making that available to him. Thank you!"

"The OraStretch press has increased my opening by over 30%. I'm still working to stretch to get some dental work done, but I'm very pleased with it."Patricia P.
"Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) also froze my jaw! It got so bad I could not open my mouth more than a quarter inch. I was desperate for help. After tons of research I was able to find this "Miracle" device, the OraStretch Press Jaw Motion Rehab System ! My doctor wrote me a prescription for the device and I sent it to these folks. They got my insurance to cover it!
I began using it and within two weeks I had nearly full range of motion back in my jaw! To date my jaw works very well and opens fully with no pain! The folks at this company have called me several times just to follow up. Wonderful customer service. I just can't say enough good things about these folks!"
"My daughter began using the OraStretch press approximately two weeks ago. The therapist is using it 5 times a day during the week.
She has experienced amazing results. Her initial opening measurement was 9 mm, and it is now measuring 21 cm. She is stunned at the improvement. Her speech therapist is also excited, as she had never before been exposed to the OraStretch press. She had stated that she will recommend it to other stroke patients, as the improvement is outstanding.
Just wanted to let your company know that the results are outstanding. My daughter and I, as well as the rehab facility, are really excited with the improvement shown by this device."
