 Medical specifications

Elbow orthoses for mobilisation with immobilisation of the PRU joint

medi Epico ROMs is an elbow brace. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the elbow and only on intact skin.



Features

Product benefits

  • Immobilisation of the elbow joint by fixation of the upper and lower arm

  • Joint movement is limited to 0°-120° to guarantee ROM appropriate to the stage of rehabilitation

  • Prevention of movements that can cause luxation or subluxation

  • Prevention of pronation and supination movement due to hand rest


How does it work?/Mode of action

Adjust the extension and flexion limits
on the instructions of your doctor only.

Particularly during the first few days after traumatic events, the belts should
be slackened often so as to avoid severe
swelling.

Donning/fitting instructions

Open all the hook and loop fastener straps and put the brace on so that its joint lies directly over the lateral epicondyle. You can adjust the length of the arm rest with the two screws on the forearm splint.
First close the two lower arm belts, then the upper arm belts.
Guide one end of the neck strap through the ring on the arm cuff and fasten the hook and loop fastener.
Pass the other end over your shoulder, guide it through the ring on the hand rest, and fasten the hook and loop fastener.
The neck pad can be adjusted individually, but it should lie over the middle of the shoulder. The pads can be trimmed to size with scissors if necessary.
The frame of the orthosis is made of aluminium and can be adjusted as required. Avoid making alterations close to the joint area, however.

Wearing directions

Open all the straps and put the brace on so that its joint lies directly over the lateral epicondyle. You can adjust the length of the arm rest with the two screws on the forearm splint.
First close the two lower arm belts (No. 1+2), then the upper arm belts (No. 3+4). The pads can be trimmed to size along the guide lines, using scissors, if necessary. The straps can be shortened. To achieve this, loosen the fastening ends and shorten the straps as required. Then fasten the strap ends again so that they are secure.
Guide one end of the neck strap through the ring on the arm cuff and fasten the hook and loop.
Pass the other end over your shoulder, guide it through the ring on the hand rest, and fasten the strap.
The frame of the orthosis is made of aluminium and can be adjusted as required. Avoid making alterations close to the joint area, however.
