Splinting with Orfit materials: Wrist and thumb Orthosis from Orfit Colors NS 2.0mm

Splinting Techniques: Video 9 of 10

This week, we would like to show you another splinting video for a wrist and thumb orthosis. The demonstrated material is a pre-cut model from Orfit Colors NS in Hot Green.

A wrist and thumb orthosis can serves to immobilize the wrist, the basal joint and the MCP joint of the thumb. This type of immobilization splint is recommended during the treatment of several indications, including the following:

  • Post-surgical thumb basal joint arthritis
  • Thumb and wrist sprains
  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Follow-up treatment of scaphoid fracture

The  Orfit Colors NS precut material is not yet available in the color that was demonstrated in the video, Hot Green, but can be obtained in Sonic Silver, Metallic Blue, Dominant Black or Ocean Blue.  The orthosis can be fabricated in the same colour by designing this same pattern out of an Orfit Colors NS 2.0mm sheet.
