Orthoses, Upper Limb, Wrist

Definition : Upper-limb orthoses designed for external modification of the structural and/or functional characteristics of the wrist joint, providing controlled motions and/or immobilization and support. These orthoses are usually classified according to the function of the orthoses (e.g., immobilization, support, therapeutic, functional) and the physical characteristics (e.g., shape, consistency) and/or material used to make the orthosis (metal, plastics or a combination of these). Wrist upper-limb orthoses may consist of soft orthoses (e.g., a combination of cuffs, straps, and flexible mechanisms) that are intended to provide limited support and stabilization or semi-rigid orthoses that can provide a high degree or total immobilization of the wrist joint. Wrist upper-limb orthoses are intended mainly to provide motion control of the wrist movements, for complete immobilization of the wrist joint, and to avoid pain after injuries or trauma. Dedicated wrist orthoses for static and/or dynamic therapy, and for use during normal daily activities (i.e., functional) are also available.
