Orthoses, Upper Limb, Shoulder-Elbow, Support, Abduction

Definition : Upper-limb orthoses designed to provide support by displacing the arm away from the midline of the body (i.e., abduction). These also provide some degree of movement restriction to the shoulder and elbow joints. These orthoses typically consist of a forearm with an adjustable coupling that is attached to a plastic band placed around the pelvis; permitting a variety of restricted flexion and rotation movements to the abducted limb. Abduction shoulder-elbow support orthoses (known as gunslinger orthoses) are frequently used to assist the limb function by positioning it in an abducted position with partial restriction and control of its movement during rehabilitation from injuries or trauma.

Entry Terms : "Gunslinger Orthoses" , "Shoulder-Elbow Supports, Abduction"
