Orthoses, Upper Limb, Wrist, Functional, Dorsal Splint

Definition : Wrist orthoses designed to make possible and/or improve the functional activities of the wrist during common daily activities. These devices provide support, supplement, and/or augment the wrist functions while allowing finger articulation movements and thumb opposition. These orthoses typically consist of a splint (known as cock-up splint) that is placed from the palmar crease of the hand to the distal part of the forearm which positions the wrist at about 30 degrees of extension. Splint functional static wrist orthoses are used mainly to alleviate pain and permit better functioning of the hands in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and/or other diseases (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome) affecting the wrist.
