Arm- and Shoulder
Arm, elbow, and shoulder orthoses are available in different designs from simple arm slings to more rigid orthoses. They stabilize and support to relieve pain and facilitate healing after injury. A stabilizing shoulder orthosis can also be used in neurological conditions such as a stroke. This group includes orthoses (bandages) for tennis elbow (also known as epicondylitis), shoulder support, shoulder lock, shoulder orthoses in hemiplegia after a stroke, arm slings with different degrees of stabilization, humerus orthoses in the treatment of shaft fractures on the upper arm.
