Orastretch – press jaw motion rehab 

Cranio rehab instrument, Orastretch, is a home therapy exercise and stretch device. It treats and prevents trismus and joint dysfunction. On average, around half of oral cancer patients and 85% of nasal cancer patients will experience trismus from surgical and radiation cancer treatments. 

The Orastretch press is used to stretch open the mouth, which often tightens following radiation treatments. The Orastretch system is also used to treat TMD disorder and dysfunction. Patients can use the hand-held appliance to mobilise the mouth and jaw for improved function and to treat pain and swelling and to prevent scar tissue after surgery.
