The ManuLoc® long Plus wrist support is a long hand orthosis with a removable finger support. It immobilises parts of the forearm, the wrist, and the second to fifth fingers. The thumb alone remains able to move freely, thanks to a large opening in the orthosis. Three anatomically pre-shaped aluminum stays hold the wrist in a functional position and relieve strain. They also stabilise parts of the forearm and reliably restrict stretching, bending, and rotating movements in the hand. The wide, adjustable finger support fixes the palm of the hand and the long fingers in the outstretched hand or intrinsic plus position. In the latter position, the outer capsular ligaments are extended, preventing damage due to immobilization. Complete immobilization of the hand up to the thumb provides maximum protection against inappropriate mechanical stress and supports the healing process.
Practical for all aspects of treatment
A row of large Velcro fastenings means that the ManuLoc® long Plus can be put on and taken off quickly and easily with one hand. This type of design is comfortable, breathable, and practical for all aspects of treatment including wound inspection and physiotherapy exercises.
