INDICATION

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 adjust-ments, readjustments (e.g. after soft tissue swelling is reduced) can be made without removing the orthosis.

  • Place the forearm into the ready to use orthosis.
  • Shape the orthosis to the hand with gentle pressure, and close the ring around the thumb.
  • Fasten the stable bandage on the wrist and the textile one on the forearm.

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.
