Splinting with Orfit materials: Volar Wrist Cock-up Orthosis from Orfit Flex NS 3.2mm

Splinting Techniques: Video 4 of 10

In this week’s edition of Splinting Thursdays, we want to show you a Volar Wrist Cock-up Orthosis made of Orfit Flex NS 3.2.

The volar wrist cock- up orthosis is one of the most frequently fabricated orthoses.  It holds the wrist in extension but allows for functional use of the thumb and fingers.  The wrist cock-up orthosis is commonly prescribed for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist sprains or tendinitis, wrist arthritis or following forearm and carpal surgeries or fractures.  The orthosis should support the forearm by covering two thirds of its length.  Care should be taken not to block full flexion of the ulnar digits at the distal border.

Watch this video for detailed instructions on how to create this type of orthosis.
