Orthoses, Lower/Upper Limb, Immobilizer, Wire Ladder Splint

Definition : Lower/upper-limb orthoses designed for maximum restriction of movements and/or total immobilization of an upper and/or lower limb using a pliable splint that resembles a ladder. These orthoses usually consist of moldable metallic wire covered with plastic (e.g., vinyl) that can be bent in many different configurations that are appropriate to immobilize an upper or lower limb. The orthoses may also include bandage and safety pins to secure the splint. Wire ladder orthoses are used mainly as a first aid to immobilize a limb after traumatic injuries.
