EWHdO, elbow flexion/extension orthosis, dynamic, not powered, prefabricated


Orthosis designed to guide the elbow joint motion. Includes external bilateral or lateral joints that can restrict flexion or extension of the elbow. The hand, wrist and forearm are kept in functional position, allowing unrestricted finger motion. Is composed of forearm and humeral thermoplastic shells connected to each other with Velcro straps and through mechanical elbow joints. Includes a partial hand support. Has no flexion or extension powering.
