Orthoses, Upper Limb, Wrist, Support

Definition : Upper-limb wrist flexible orthoses designed to encircle and support the wrist joint that also provide some restriction of the joint movement. These devices are usually made of wide pieces of elastic fabric with hook-and-loop closures (e.g., Velcro) for adjustment of the size and they are available in several sizes. Wrist supports are used mainly to support and compress the wrist in an appropriate position and to provide relief from pain and strain of the wrist joint after trauma (e.g., joint sprain), arthritis diseases, and/or excessive use of the joint. They can also be used for rehabilitation therapy after surgery and for extended use during normal functioning of the wrist.
