Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2010
Orthotics And Beyond, an international distributor of extremity orthopedic braces to institutional and retail customers, has expanded its wrist brace and hand splint product suite to offer a greater variety of solutions for painful carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries (RSI). An individual’s daily activities should be considered as part of a therapeutic plan, and many individuals cannot effectively alter those activities, especially when a workplace task reassignment may be involved. In these cases, the wrist and hand pain may be treated during downtime using a carpal tunnel night splint like the SoftPro Functional Resting Hand Orthosis to maintain proper wrist position. Where downtime bracing is ineffective or not feasible, splinting may be required throughout the day. Activity assessment is critical in these cases, as improper product selection may actually worsen the condition because the hand and wrist strain against the splint while the individual attempts to maintain productivity throughout the workday. In these all too common cases, the selection of hand braces for carpal tunnel and RSI should balance the therapeutic objective with the necessary daily productivity requirements to yield recommendations that give adequate support while permitting sufficient range of motion freedom. The ideal dual objectives are to identify a wrist splint/hand brace that provides just enough support to stabilize the wrist and hand while having enough flexibility to safely allow productivity.
Because of the complex interdependence between activities, lifestyle, and repetitive stress injuries, Orthotics And Beyond now offers a comprehensive line of carpal tunnel aids including wrist braces, hand splints, thumb spicas, and arthritic pain relieving gloves. With various styles, expanded sizing, and the ability to remove or modify splints as needed, an individual can cost effectively obtain and customize a wrist brace/hand splint that simultaneously addresses their support and functionality needs.
