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 forearm into the orthosis.
  • Adjust the orthosis with gentle pressure, and fix the thumb with the Velcro fastener.
  • Fasten the three straps on the back of hand, at the wrist and on the forearm. To remove the orthosis, open the stiffened straps only on one side.

To remove the orthosis, it is not necessary to open the strap on the thumb and 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.
