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.

Individually manufactured hand orthoses
If a ready-made wrist or thumb orthosis is not sufficient, we also offer custom-made orthoses at ergonomic care Munich. One reason for this can be a severe deformity, especially in pediatric and adolescent medicine. We use special joint systems from the Caroli company to be able to precisely adjust the desired fixation position, or the range of motion of the wrist. By using the most modern materials, we are also able to achieve high wearing comfort with low weight. In addition, you can choose from a variety of design options as to how your hand orthosis should look.
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.
