Orthosis for increased stabilization of the wrist
Bauerfeind ManuLoc® Long
The ManuLoc long is a longer version of the ManuLoc wrist orthosis. As well as immobilizing the wrist like the ManuLoc, it immobilizes large parts of the forearm too. This intensive protection helps to relieve particularly severe symptoms and supports care following severe bruising and as soon as the plaster cast is removed after surgery. Wearing the orthosis prevents painful movements, while the hand can still grip objects and move around freely.
- Stabilizes the wrist and parts of the forearm
- Allows gripping movements
- Easy to put on with one hand
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Post-operative follow-up care for fractures close to the wrist
- Post-traumatic treatment
- Pre-operative care
SECURE SUPPORT WITH PLENTY OF MOBILITY
Three long aluminum stays in the ManuLoc long secure the wrist in a relaxed position. They extend well up the forearm and reliably restrict stretching, bending and rotating movements in the hand. This extremely stable design supports the healing process. The orthosis also boosts healing by maintaining finger mobility, leaving them free to perform controlled gripping movements. This prevents stiffness and inappropriate mechanical stress caused by poor posture due to pain.
PRACTICAL IN EVERYDAY LIFE AND DURING TREATMENT
The functional design of the orthosis makes it ideal for daily use. It is pleasantly light and extremely flat, so it can be worn under clothing without any problems. To allow the skin to breathe, there are air holes in the orthosis material as well as large free spaces. The orthosis can be opened quickly and securely closed again using four large micro Velcro fastenings. The fact that it is so easy to put on and take off makes the entire treatment process easier, for example when it comes to checking wounds or pursuing complementary treatment such as physiotherapy or ergotherapy.
All supports are engineered to perform one or more functions, including:
Providing circular compression to aid circulation, promote healing and limit swelling
Helping to restrict medial/lateral motion
Anchoring the knee cap to help promote healing
Helping to relieve pain,
Limiting stress and stain over tendons, ligaments and nerves around the joint
