Orthoses and bandages are orthopaedic devices and perform the task of correcting the body from the outside. Using an orthopaedic device can aim to achieve various goals depending on the needs of the patient:
Nowadays, functional orthoses and bandages are the standard of technology in the treatment of diseases and impairments of the musculoskeletal system. In the past, joints were first treated with fixations and stiffeners, often in the form of a plaster cast. This made the patient’s everyday life considerably more difficult. Furthermore, subsequent complaints, such as muscle atrophy and tendon shortening were common.
Orthopaedic devices such as functional orthoses and bandages, which, as their name suggests, enable movement, i.e. function, have established themselves as an alternative. Our devices enable patients to be guided in motion. Therefore they may carry out their movements safely without endangering tendons, ligaments and fascia.
There are a variety of neurological indications that can benefit from fitting orthoses and bandages. Orthopaedic devices can be used as a supplement to therapy and as functional support for everyday life. Depending on the indication, the objective for the use of orthoses and bandages can range from pain reduction to increased participation in active life . These goals should always be defined with the treating therapy team. Our devices for neurologic rehabilitation are summarized in our NEURO series.
Just like adults, children and young people can suffer from an illness or impairment. They too deserve the best possible care. Especially in the areas of orthopaedics and neurology, the provision of orthoses and bandages can also have significant benefits for children. It was therefore always a matter truly dear to us to offer our devices in smaller sizes and in a child-friendly design . Our JUNIOR series offers a variety of devices for children, both for functional and therapeutic support.
People do not come in S, M, L, XL – this sentence has accompanied us for a long time. To enable the best possible fit for all needs, our INDIVIDUAL joints complement our proven modular system. Technicians have the opportunity to produce customized products for their patients. Especially in the fields of neurology and paediatrics, patients often benefit from customized devices.
