Hand orthoses and supports stabilise and support
Orthoses can take the strain off joints or entire regions of the body, right where you need it most. They can also prevent you from making wrong movements. This helps to alleviate pain and ensure therapy is successful. Hand orthoses are specially designed for the hand and wrist area. Depending on the model, they can also be effective for parts of the forearm. If you wear a hand orthosis, you won’t be able to move the affected part as freely as you would with a hand support, wrist support or finger support. A hand orthosis stabilises the joint or immobilises your finger, hand or wrist.
Depending on the design in question, some hand orthoses can correct the position of your hand or be adjusted to allow a specific range and extent of motion. Some can even set the exact position or range of motion for individual fingers. This prevents users from performing movements that would impair their recovery. In short, a suitable hand orthosis will ensure movements are performed in a safe, controlled manner. Straps, bars or rods are generally used to stabilise the hand, wrist and possibly the forearm.
