Orthopaedic braces and immobilisers allow weight relief without blocking the mobility of the limb
Orthopaedic braces are medical devices designed to increase the function of a limb or joint, prevent or correct deformities, protect healing structures, maintain proper movement, stabilise joints, control inflammation and protect a painful area while providing the patient with the best possible comfort.
The weight of the limb is offloaded by the braces and mobility is not deflected. They are mainly used in the field of recovery and rehabilitation, treating back, foot, knee, etc. problems.Immobilisers, on the other hand, serve to immobilise joints. Once worn, the limb is held in place by adapting to the shape of the brace, thus providing support and reducing pain after trauma or surgery.
Orthopaedic braces are developed to ensure a reduction in swelling and provide pain relief due to their compression effect. Their internal structure allows the skin to breathe. The braces make ideal supports for the wrist, knee, elbow, shoulder, thigh, ankle, etc.
The purpose of an immobiliser is to aid the body’s rehabilitation after trauma or surgery by stabilising the joint and ensuring the fastest possible recovery.
