TheraBite Jaw Rehabilitation System – Restoring jaw mobility
The TheraBite Jaw Rehabilitation System is an anatomically correct and easily portable system. Clinically proven to restore mobility after trismus and mandibular hypomobility. The controllable system uses repetitive motion to stretch connective tissue. It also strengthens weakened muscles and mobilises joints. The average sustainable gain in jaw opening is around 1–1.5 mm per week.
The system helps to reduce muscle pain by reducing joint inflammation and preventing reduced muscle strength during (chemo)radiation.
A unique feature of TheraBite system is its ability to follow the naturally curved motion of the jaw. The curved track of the TheraBite Jaw Mobilizer guides the mandible along an anatomically correct pathway.
When using the TheraBite system, the patient is in control. Speed and opening range can be adjusted directly by the patient, using manual force, or the Fine Adjustment Knob. This feature helps to reduce anxiety levels and improve compliance.
Available in both adult and pediatric versions.
What is Trismus?
The lower jaw incorporates important muscles, joints, and teeth vital for chewing, speaking,
swallowing, and making facial expressions. Reduced ability to open the mouth or pain when opening the mouth may be a sign of Trismus. Trismus is a serious yet frequently overlooked condition that may appear at any age and can progress slowly. Early detection and rehabilitation can help patients counter this restrictive condition and prevent sometimes costly complications which may compromise a patient’s quality of life and health.
