Thumb Immobilization Orthosis with Orfit Classic

Wrist + thumb immobilization orthosis from Orfit Classic

Characteristics

  • Transparent when activated.
  • Non-coated material.
  • Excellent stretch (1000%) without tearing.
  • Full elastic memory (100%).
  • Easy to trim edges.
  • Available in high stretch (“soft”) and low stretch (“stiff”) version.
  • Antibacterial property.
  • Available in pre-cuts.

How it works and looks

  • Transparency indicates when the material is ready to mould. Allows for proper alignment and visual monitoring over anatomical landmarks.
  • Temporary adhesion during orthotic fabrication and reliable permanent bonding by using dry heat. Tackiness helps orthosis stay in place during fabrication. All attachments and outriggers can be adhered easily.
  • Very precise moulding conforms to patient anatomy, for example in the hand arches and first web space. Accurate moulding improves correct dispersion of skin pressure.
  • Completely remouldable and can be adjusted easily after reheating locally.
  • Avoids waste of material.
  • Soft version has less resistance to stretch and more drape, while stiff version has increased resistance to stretch and less drape.

Recommended applications

  • Unlimited potential for the fabrication of all size splints with extra care and prevention of pressure points. Excellent as a base for different attachments.
  • “Soft” version recommended for: small finger orthoses, thumb orthoses, resting hand orthoses, wrist and wrist/thumb orthoses and circumferential designs.
  • “Stiff” version recommended for: large orthoses, long arm orthoses, AFO’s and fracture and anti-spastic bracing.
