APPLICATION AND ADJUSTING

The ready to adjust Chrisofix® orthoses have to be adjusted directly on the in-jured/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 orthesis.

  • Remove first the stiffener bar. After forming the orthesis (according to thefollowing steps) the stiffener bar has to be formed too.
  • Shape the orthesis on the hand, wrist and forearm.
  • Set the wrist into the required position.
  • Put the arm with the palmar side into the preshaped orthosis.
  • Adjust the orthosis with gentle pressure to the hand and forearm.
  • Replace the stiffener bar.Fasten the bandages over the fingers, hand and forearm.

To remove the orthosis, it is not necessary to open the strap on back of the hand; the hand 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.
