Upper limb orthoses

To alleviate pain and allow you to continue your activities.

Médicus offers a variety of orthoses and splints designed to treat conditions affecting the upper limbs of the body (shoulder, arm/forearm, elbow, wrist and thumb, fingers). Complete or partial immobilization, movement support: our accredited orthotist-prosthetists can provide advice on the product that meets your needs.

Shoulder orthoses

The different types of shoulder orthoses and slings are useful for post-surgical immobilization or to stabilize and rehabilitate the joint following an injury. They promote healing and, depending on the pathology, they can be used to control movement for greater safety.

A shoulder orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Post-traumatic or postsurgical immobilisation
  • Fracture, sprain, bursitis or tendonitis in the shoulder region
  • Subluxation or luxation of the shoulder
  • Benign shoulder lesions

Elbow orthoses

There are different orthoses designed for the treatment of elbow injuries. The most common is epicondylitis, which are micro-lesions of the tendons or muscles that enable extension of the fingers and the wrist. This syndrome is often caused by repeated movements involving this region, while working or playing sports or doing a hobby. To relieve the resulting pain, the elbow must be rested: wearing an orthosis provides support that stabilizes the muscle group and reduces stress.

An elbow orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Medial humeral epicondylitis
  • Lateral tendinopathy

Wrist and hand

The wrist and the hand are parts of the body subjected to much daily stress and pressure. For example, repeated gestures, at work or during sports, can lead to trauma and injury of all kinds. It is important to treat them with the right orthosis, which will provide the necessary support and rest for pain relief and healing.

A wrist orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • To stabilize, immobilize or align a joint
  • Spastic post-CVA paralysis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Wrist tendonitis
  • De Quervain’s syndrome
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
