Orthoses, Upper Limb, Wrist, Therapeutic, Volar Splint

Definition : Therapeutic wrist orthoses designed for external modification of the structural and/or functional characteristics of the wrist joint. These devices keep the joint in an extended position (i.e., without allowing movement of the joint) using a semi-rigid frame along the forearm and wrist to the thumb (known as a volar splint). These orthoses typically consist of a malleable aluminum frame placed along the forearm using soft pads and straps. The frame is attached to the thumb with a strap which permits the hand and fingers normal function with the wrist in slight extended position. Static therapy volar splints are used mainly to treat injuries after trauma, including tendonitis, and post-wrist sprains and fractures.
