Orthopaedic Aids for Treating Orthopedic Disorders
Orthopaedic aids serve as stabilisation, relief, immobilisation or protection of specific body parts. The applied wraps, splints, or orthoses can be used to treat misalignment, for immobilising an injury or for limiting movement after a surgical procedure. Depending on the type of orthopaedic treatment, orthopaedic aids are designed to support the healing process, to restore mobility or for alleviate pain.
Orthoses for Treating the Trunk & Extremities
Wraps Offer Protection & Stability for Joints
A wrap serves to protect and stabilise joints, such as knees, elbows or ankles. Wraps can also be applied to treat instabilities in the trunk e.g. for fractured ribs. These orthopaedic aids are equally suited for treating lesions, as well as for preventing injuries, such as for users with ligament instability, and are therefore often worn by athletes.
Depending on style and model, some wraps also have an additional cooling or compressing affect, in addition their support function.
Splints for Joint Immobilisation
Splints are worn to hold and immobilise joints following distortion, arthrosis, fractures or soft tissue lesions and reliably prevent the affected joints from moving. The use of a splint positively influences the healing process of and simultaneously prevents subsequent injuries, which could be caused by unwanted strain.
Because splints, like other orthopedic aids, must often be worn over a longer period of time, the used material should be as skin friendly and breathable as possible to prevent skin irritation. The splint should also be easy to clean.
