Elbow Orthoses

Customized and prefabricated elbow orthoses

The elbow joint and orthotic management meet most commonly after an elbow fracture has healed and the patient is left with a decreased ROM at the joint. Flexion contractures are the most common, meaning the elbow can not fully straighten out.

The orthosis will provide a slow constant extension moment to the joint and this passive stretch works well to maintain and improve on ROM changes made during physio treatments.

We use 2 different models of orthoses, the Mackie system and the Dynasplint as seen below


Tennis / Golfer's Elbow are common conditions and are most commonly caused by an overuse scenario, too much tennis playing, brick laying, weightlifting etc. Compression at or near the origin the painful muscle allows a decrease of strain on that muscle site and this often decreases the pain level.
