Carpal with Paw Grade 3

Rigid orthosis that stabilizes the carpal joint and the paw. The thermoplastic fabric turns it into an immobilizing cast after heating, with the benefit of easy removal for skin inspection and for early rehabilitation. Easy to shape and quick to apply. A non-toxic and safe alternative to cast treatment.

The paw part can be cut off to achieve stabilization of the carpal joint only. The inner neoprene part of the orthosis can also be used by itself, together with the supplied stabilizers and extra sole, as a Grade 2 orthosis.

  • Conservative and postop treatment of tendon/ligam. injuries
  • Conservative and postop treatment of fractures.
  • Conservative and postoperative treatment of injuries, arthritis and inflammations of the phalanges.

Carpal Grade 4

Custom-made from a cast of the individual and designed after patient’s specific needs. The orthosis can be adjusted and adapted to the desired level of movement with a stop band and/or motion limiter for a controlled rehabilitation or as an extra insurance after delicate surgery. We can also adapt the orthosis for use 24 hours a day postoperatively.

  • Provides rigid external support
  • Promotes postoperative rehabilitation
  • Long-term treatment for joint instability and prevention of contractures
  • Partial ligament and tendon injury
