Elbow brace for children with limitation of flexion and extension

A wide variety of conditions of the elbow and lower arm require immobilisation at a specific angle. The medi Epico ROM®s Kidz is an elbow brace for children that allows mobilisation with immobilisation of the elbow joint. The proximal radioulnar articulation (part of the elbow joint) is immobilised. The brace allows the angle of the proximal radioulnar articulation to be set in 10-degree steps from 0° (completely straight) to 120° (sharply bent). This ensures an individual mobilisation of the elbow joint appropriate to the stage of rehabilitation. The excellent material of the extended hand support provides more comfort, even in the case of severe swelling. Non-slip upper arm padding gives a secure hold. The pads can be easily shortened, thus allowing the support to be adapted to fit the individual patient.

The elbow brace medi Epico ROM®s Kidz can be used for all indications in which an early functional mobilization with movement limitation of the elbow joint and immobilization of the proximal radius-ulnar joint is required, such as:

  • The surgical fixation of the medial and / or lateral collateral ligaments
  • The conservative treatment of elbow dislocations
  • The surgical treatment of elbow fractures
  • Reconstruction of the ulnar or radial collateral ligaments
  • The surgical treatment of biceps or triceps ruptures
  • Treatment of radial head fracture (nonsurgical, postoperative)
  • Treatment following insertion of a prothesis
  • Distal humeral fractures (nonsurgical, postoperative)

The elbow brace was developed specially for children: the modern and child-oriented design in jeans look convinces the young patients. The adaptable upper arm padding and the low total weight of the brace made from 100 percent aluminium increases wearing comfort. Furthermore, the support is easy to handle due to flat quick-set joint.

At the same time, the adjustable limitation of movement can lead to a reduction in movement-related pain. The hand support prevents inward and outward rotation (pronation and supination) of the lower arm, which assists the healing process.

Features

How does it work?/Mode of action

  • Elbow brace for mobilisation with immobilisation of the proximal radioulnar articulation
  • Prevention of pronation or supination of the lower arm via immobilising hand support
  • Definable limitation of range of movement (0° - 120°) ensures therapy-appropriate mobilisation and thus promotes the healing process
  • Due to the guidance and defined limitation of the range of motion, movement-related pain can be prevented
  • The brace design enables an early functional mobilisation of the elbow within a defined range of motion


Intended purpose
