The ManuLoc long Plus is a long hand orthosis with a removable finger support. It immobilizes 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 stabilize 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 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.

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
