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
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.
Aluminum, PU foam, Cotton
Hook and loop fasteners should be closed for washing. Soap residues, lotions and ointments can cause skin irritation and material wear.
Wash the paddings and straps by hand, preferably using medi clean washing agent.
- Do not bleach.
- Leave to dry naturally.
- Do not iron.
- Do not dry clean.
With normal use, the hinge mechanism should not require any maintenance, but it can be lubricated with Teflon spray.
- 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
- The surgical treatment of biceps or triceps ruptures
- Treatment following insertion of a prothesis
- Absolute contraindications:
- Wound healing issues and wound
- Skin issues when open wounds are
- Concomitant neurological damage, e.g. ulnar nerve
- Compartment syndrome
- Relative contraindications:
- Lymph drainage issues
- An allergy to the materials / substances
