Arm

➡️Abduction Orthoses👆🏼

This orthosis is applied as a treatment following a broken shoulder joint (techn. rotator cuff). The arm is stabilized. It is a lightweight construction with the possibility of precise position adjustment, according to medical indications.

➡️Sarmiento apparatus for the humerus👆🏼

This orthosis is applied in cases of humerus fracture. It secures and compresses the humerus by means of the double-valved plastic material shell. A special stocking is worn underneath. The orthosis is available in two versions: either with a shoulder cuff (when the fracture is close to the shoulder), or without a shoulder cuff (when the fracture is far from the shoulder).

Hand

➡️Stabilization orthosis👆🏼

These orthoses are applied in cases of:

  • Fractures
  • Partial or complete numbness of the semilunate bone (carpal bone of the part in the direction of the trunk) (techn. malacia of the semilunate)
  • Pain in the thumb and wrist joint
  • Drooping hand (hand falling limp in case of radial nerve palsy)
  • Carpal canal syndrome
  • Ulnar deviation
  • Chronic primary polyarthritis
➡️Winterstein-type splint👆🏼

This orthosis is applied in cases of extensor tendon rupture and flexion of the DIP joint (distal interphalangeal joint: located at the end of the finger). The finger joint is mechanically fixed in a stretching position so that the initial situation is reconstituted.

Fingers

➡️Thumb splint👆🏼

This orthosis is applied when the collateral ligament at the base of the thumb (skier’s thumb) is ruptured.

It fixes the MP joint (metacarpophalangeal joint: located at the base of the finger) so that the thumb is in a position in opposition to the other fingers.

➡️Finger elevator👆🏼

This orthosis is applied in case of deformation of the PIP joint (proximal interphalangeal joint: located in the middle of the finger).

The finger is mechanically fixed in the extension position of the PIP joint so that the initial situation is reconstituted.
