APPLICATION AND ADJUSTING

The ready to adjust Chrisofix® orthoses have to be adjusted directly on the injured/diseased body part. The rough adjustment (bending) has to be performed on a non-injured limb of similar size. Fine adjustments, readjustments (e.g. after soft tissue swelling is reduced) can be made without removing the orthosis.

  • Place the thumb into the preshaped orthosis.
  • Shape the orthosis to the thumb with gentle pressure, and close the fasteners around the thumb and on the wrist.
  • You can regulate the distance between the thumb and index finger by selecting the angle of the fasteneraround the thumb (pictures 2/a and 2/b).

To remove the orthosis, it is not necessary to open the strap on the thumb; the thumb can simply be pulled out from and later shifted back into the fixation. Frequent bending and stretching of the orthosis can damage its stability; these must be restricted to the necessary minimum.
