Static progressive orthosis for patients with limited radial and/or ulnar deviation: an innovative orthotic design.
After injury to the wrist and forearm, therapists and patients frequently work to regain the motions of wrist flexion/extension and forearm pronation/supination. Although these motions play a vital role in everyday functioning, for some, limitations in wrist radial/ulnar deviation can also present functional challenges. These authors describe the creation and utilization of a static progressive orthosis to assist a patient in regaining wrist radioulnar deviation
