Wrist Orthosis - Thumb Orthosis Munich

With 27 bones and a multitude of tendons, muscles and joints, our hand is incredibly mobile. It is therefore our most important, endogenous "tool" and constantly in motion. However, this also means that it is easy to overuse, inflame, or injure the hand or wrist. For example, when we fall, we instinctively catch ourselves with our wrist, which can result in strains or even fractures in the wrist. In order for such an injury or inflammation to heal properly, a suitable wrist orthosis is usually the most effective solution.

Reasons for a wrist orthosis

First and foremost, a wrist orthosis or thumb orthosis ensures immobilization and protection of the wrist. This prevents painful movements and allows the hand to heal properly.

The indications for a wrist orthosis are very diverse. For example, falls in sports or everyday life can quickly lead to sprains or fractures in the hand. In addition, diseases can also lead to pain in the wrist. Examples are arthrosis of the wrist, rhizarthrosis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or rheumatism.

Your advantages with ergonomic Care

The first medical supply store that could help me.
Due to my tendovaginitis on both arms, no medical supply store had the splints there but here in Ergonmic Care I was even offered a cheaper variant and ordered immediately.
When I picked up the splints, everything went smoothly and I was helped immediately. The service - from the consultation, order and pickup - was top! Thank you again and I will be happy to come to you again.

Frequently asked questions

A wrist orthosis, often also called a hand splint, is an aid for immobilizing and stabilizing the wrist and/or thumb. It usually consists of a splint that extends from the forearm over the ball of the hand to the palm, textile fabric and straps or Velcro fasteners for fixation.

This is the standard hand orthosis model of the company medi.

Yes, if you have a doctor's prescription for a hand orthosis. Just come with the prescription to our medical supply store at Sendlinger Tor in Munich, and we will take care of the processing with the health insurance.

Special hand orthoses, such as medi CTS, are suitable for alleviating the discomfort caused by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). However, your attending physician will explain to you exactly which orthosis is the right one for your symptoms.

CTS is the abbreviation for carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a pinching of the metacarpal nerves in the wrist tunnel (carpal tunnel). Causes of carpal tunnel syndrome can be overexertion or injuries in the wrist area, but it also occurs more frequently during pregnancy or in diabetes patients.

This is arthrosis, i.e. cartilage wear in the thumb saddle joint. It usually occurs at an age of more than 50 years, often in people whose hands are exposed to many light and filigree stresses. An example would be the so-called tweezer grip when handling a sewing needle.

A hand brace, wrist brace or finger brace is primarily intended to activate the hand muscle groups. A lightweight plastic splint provides only slight support for the joint here and hardly restricts freedom of movement. In contrast, a hand orthosis is mainly used to fix and stabilize the hand, wrist or fingers in a gentle position. It restricts the freedom of movement somewhat more, but prevents unhealthy movements.
