EZ-FLEX-II Air Cushioned TMJ Exerciser
E-Z Flex II is a TMJ exerciser and jaw exercise treatment, developed as a passive motion device designed to restore normal range of motion and function to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and jaw.
It is designed specifically for treating TMJ symptoms and TMJ disorders by targeting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles. The unique use of flexible tubing and an air pump provides therapeutic passive motion to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that is gentle, safe and easy to use with total control by the user. Passive motion occurs when joint mobilization is powered by a force other than one generated by the normal muscles.
This concept of passive motion in TMJ joint rehabilitation is based on over 40 years of orthopedic research that has shown that motion is essential for the restoration of function in all joints. Orthopedists have been using passive motion devices to rehabilitate joints throughout the body, and the principles of passive motion are directly applicable to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and mandibular function.

1. Disorders of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
2. Jaw muscle disorders from muscle spasm, clenching, bruxism (grinding of teeth), muscle stress & strain
3. Rehabilitation of jaw mobility and function following jaw surgery: TMJ surgery – arthroscopy, arthrotomy, TMJ arthrocentesis (joint irrigation), orthognathic surgery (correction of skeletal jaw disorders)
4. Rehabilitation of jaw mobility and function from trauma (following the healing phase)
5. Rehabilitation of jaw mobility and function following trismus from: Dental/facial infection, Dental injection
6. Maintenance of jaw mobility and function: during and after radiation therapy to the head and neck, certain intra-cranial (brain) surgeries
Warnings and Cautions
1. A variety of serious conditions may cause jaw pain and/or decreased jaw opening. The use of E-Z Flex II is not a substitute for a careful medical/dental evaluation prior to its use. All individuals with symptoms of jaw pain, limited opening or other symptoms of jaw dysfunction should undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified healthcare provider before using E-Z Flex II.
2. Individuals with dental problems, dental implants, crowns, bridges, loose teeth, gum and periodontal problems, complete dentures or removable dentures, should consult a dentist prior to using E-Z Flex II.

E-Z Flex II should not be used in individuals who have diagnosed or undiagnosed fractures of the upper jaw, lower jaw and facial bones. Individuals with the following conditions should not use E-Z Flex II: osteomyelitis of the upper/lower jaw, osteonecrosis of the upper/lower jaw, and other pathologic conditions of the jaw bone (cysts, tumors).
What Makes E-Z Flex II Different Than
Other TMJ Treatments & Jaw Motion Devices?
E-Z Flex II is designed specifically for treating TMJ symptoms and TMJ disorders by targeting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding jaw muscles. The unique use of flexible tubing and an air pump provides therapeutic passive motion to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that is gentle, safe and easy to use with total control by the user.
E-Z Flex II is unique and offers great advantages over other exercise devices:
- Air cushioned force is safe, gentle and flexible.
- Safety stops enable controlled progress toward improved jaw opening and function.
- Modified syringe hand pump allows user to have hands in a relaxed natural position away from the mouth during use.
- User can visually measure progress while using the device providing immediate feedback and control.
- Sustained stretch can be achieved without pressing on hand pump.
- Jaw muscle strengthening, with closure against gentle resistance can be performed by removing elastics.
- Unique system of elastics permits control of jaw muscle toning. The more elastics that are removed, creates greater resistance to jaw closure, permitting a controlled progression of toning the muscles of the jaw.
