This humerus orthosis is based on the well-known principles of a "Sarmiento orthosis", an even circular soft tissue compression. The three circular bands are tightened independently of each other. The orthosis' anchorage over the shoulder area means that it fits well in place without slipping down. The strap that goes under the opposite arm has a removable padding for increased comfort. This provides a comfortable orthosis that is easy to apply and easy for the patient to accept. The material of the orthosis allows the skin to breathe and reduces the risk of irritation. The orthosis has two thermoplastic plates that can be adjusted by heating if necessary and the shape can be adjusted with a scissor. This is not necessary in most cases. The orthosis provides free movement of the elbow joint. The orthosis has an inner sleeve to protect the sensitive skin when tightened. The textile materials are tested in accordance with Öko-tex standard 100 and do not contain latex.
Available in a regular and long version.
