Orthoses, Upper Limb, Total, Support, Sling, Wheelchair

Definition : Sling total upper-limb support orthoses designed for attachment to a wheelchair bar that are designed to provide support and some degree of movement restriction to the upper limb. These orthoses typically consist of a loop of fabric or other soft material including a band suspended from springs that are attached to a bar that is an integral part of the wheelchair; the loop includes a wider loop segment around the forearm. Wheelchair sling upper-limb support orthoses are also used to assist the limb by positioning it in an appropriate position thus compensating for muscle weakness. They may be used also during rehabilitation after injuries and/or trauma.
