Thumb Immobilization Orthosis with Orfit Classic

Wrist + thumb immobilization orthosis from Orfit Classic

Characteristics

  • Transparent when activated.
  • Non-coated material.
  • Excellent stretch (1000%) without tearing.
  • Full elastic memory (100%).
  • Easy to trim edges.
  • Available in high stretch (“soft”) and low stretch (“stiff”) version.
  • Antibacterial property.

How it works and looks

  • Transparency indicates when the material is ready to mould. Allows for proper alignment and visual monitoring over anatomical landmarks.
  • Temporary adhesion during splint fabrication and reliable permanent bonding by using dry heat. Tackiness helps orthosis stay in place during fabrication. All attachments and outriggers can be adhered easily.
  • Very precise moulding conforms to patient anatomy, for example in the hand arches and first web space. Accurate moulding improves correct dispersion of skin pressure.
  • Completely remouldable and can be adjusted easily after reheating locally.
  • Avoids waste of material.
  • Soft version has less resistance to stretch and more drape, while stiff version has increased resistance to stretch and less drape.

Recommended applications

  • Unlimited potential for the fabrication of all size splints with extra care and prevention of pressure points. Excellent as a base for different attachments.
  • “Soft” version recommended for: small finger orthoses, thumb orthoses, resting hand orthoses, wrist and wrist/thumb orthoses and circumferential designs.
  • “Stiff” version recommended for: large orthoses, long arm orthoses, AFO’s and fracture and anti-spastic bracing.

Splint in the Spotlight – Dart Thrower’s Motion Orthosis (also known as the Dart Splint)

The Dart Thrower’s Motion Splint allows for guided motion in the plane known as “dart thrower’s motion”, an oblique motion of the wrist that is incorporated during most of our activities of daily living. The motion consists of radial deviation and extension (called radial extension) towards ulnar deviation and flexion (called ulnar flexion).
