New seam, smooth edging

ManuLoc hand orthoses

Ultrasound will now be used on the edges of the three layers of material in ManuLoc hand orthoses in future to weld them into a narrow seam.

The result will be smoother edging with an airtight seal, improving the durability of the product and keeping it looking good for longer, even when worn extensively. The edging around the large thumb hole of the ManuLoc range is being kept unsealed and wider to protect the sensitive tendon compartments. With the long versions of the hand orthoses, the edging of the last segment on the forearm is also being left unsealed. The ManuLoc hand orthoses immobilize a painful wrist. Depending on the particular version, the thumb, long fingers, and parts of the forearm can also be immobilized. Production has now moved over to the new ultrasonic welded seam and is available on all ManuLoc wrist braces.
