OKG-19 HAND AND FINGERS TRAINING BRACE
HAND MUSCLES WEAKNESS
Despite the small size, the hand consists of many bones, muscles and ligaments. The manipulation functions of the hand are highly advanced, and an efficiently working hand allows you to perform everyday activities, such as eating with a spoon, driving a car, washing your body or brushing your teeth. Unfortunately, as a result of the disease, there may be significant muscle weakness and some functional limitation in the arm. There can be many reasons for the weakening of the hand muscles: degenerative conditions, neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome or stroke, as well as prolonged immobilization of the hand (e.g. in a plaster cast) and atrophy of non-working muscles.
Regardless of what causes the muscles weakening of the muscles in the arm, it is necessary to exercise and strengthen them to achieve full mobility. For this purpose, we recommend our hand and fingers training brace OKG-19 with special fingers expanders to strengthen the muscles of the hand.
Hand and fingers training brace OKG-19 is an innovative product that provides comprehensive support. The orthosis has been equipped with a special fingers expanders that allow you to perform two exercises:
Hand and fingers training brace OKG-19 is made of an innovative material AeroSpace II™.
Hand and fingers exerciser OKG-19 is equipped with anatomically shaped orthopedic splint that prevents from palmar flexion and stabilize radiocarpal joint in a perfect way.
The upper limb brace OKG-19 is equipped with 5 fingers expanders. These are special caps with elastic Velcro closure. Each of the finger expander can be used independently on all fingers, which allows them to be used freely also in the case of degenerative conditions. The rubber, which works as a expander, provides therapeutic resistance, thanks to which OKG-19 hand exerciser is not only a perfect stabilization, but also excellent slow exercises with fingers resistance.
Systematic use of the Hand and fingers training brace OKG-19 stimulates muscle growth, improves blood circulation and the flow of nerve impulses. As a result, the tissues within the hand and forearm are much better oxygenated and nourished. The coordination and endurance of the muscles in the fingers, hand, forearm and elbow joint are also improved. Moreover, the use of the OKG-19 hand brace prevents the formation of contractures and necroses after upper limb fractures.
