1、 Orthopedic prostheses limit limb movement and maintain joint stability By limiting abnormal movement, such as fixed ankle foot orthoses, the movement of ankle in all directions can be limited; by fixing the limbs, the fracture healing can be promoted or the soft tissue injury can be alleviated, such as various fixed orthoses.

1 Orthopedic prostheses limit limb movement and maintain joint stability

By limiting abnormal movement, such as fixed ankle foot orthoses, the movement of ankle in all directions can be limited; by fixing the limbs, the fracture healing can be promoted or the soft tissue injury can be alleviated, such as various fixed orthoses.

2 Traction effect of orthopedic prosthesis to relieve symptoms

Through the traction of spine, it can relieve the symptoms of nerve compression and relieve the pain, such as cervical orthosis and lumbar traction belt.

3 Orthopedic prosthesis to correct deformity and prevent the development of deformity

The soft deformity can be corrected by orthopedic appliance, such as scoliosis orthopedic appliance; the rigid deformity or the patients before operation can be limited by orthopedic appliance, such as foot valgus orthopedic appliance.

4 Protection of orthopedic prosthesis and prevention of tissue damage

By strengthening the soft tissue around the joint and limiting the joint movement properly, the stability of the joint is enhanced, and the damage of the joint, muscles and ligaments is prevented, such as shoulder, elbow, knee and other soft protective belts and soft waists.

5 Load free function of orthopedic prosthesis to reduce pain

Load free orthoses are used to reduce the load of lower limbs. The commonly used load-free orthoses include patellar ligament load-bearing orthoses and ischial load-bearing orthoses, which avoid the load-bearing of the disabled parts.

6 Functional compensation of orthopedic prosthesis, assisting limb movement

Functional orthotics that can assist the movement of limb joints. For example, the elastic force of the spring or rubber band is used to compensate the muscle function of the finger extension auxiliary orthosis and the dynamic opposite palm orthosis.

The basic function of orthopaedic prostheses modern orthotics are made by professional trained orthotics. Different from other treatment methods, orthopedic prosthetic treatment often needs close cooperation of clinicians, physiotherapists and orthopaedists.

(Note: the upper limb is different from the lower limb. Its function is not to support the body weight, but to play the dexterous holding function of the hand. In addition to stabilizing joints and correcting deformities, the upper limb orthoses are more often used to assist or replace the functions of hands.)
