The palmar part of orthosis is equipped with soft and elastic pad which makes the product more comfortable. Moreover, the structure and used materials help to relieve the carpal tunnel syndrome. Concerning the palmar part of orthosis, the product is equipped with anatomically shaped, malleable and removable palm strip, with sweat-resistant powder coating applied. Dorsal part of orthosis is equipped with 2 plastic stays. The Strip on palm and 2 dorsal stays form circumferential three-points compression allowing adequate support and unloading of radiocarpal joint.
The fitting on the Wrist by lace-up system and loop lock tapes, which ends of closure are provided with plastic covers, specially developed for patients with limited dexterity, such as osteoarthritis and wrist instability.

System for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - CTSyndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment neuropathy encountered in clinical practice. It is caused by compression of the median nerve as it passed through the carpal canal at the wrist. The most common causes of compression of the median nerve at this location include flexor tenosynovitis, rheumatoid arthritis, pregnancy, amyloidosis and poor wrist position. Carpal tunnel syndrome presents as pain, numbness, paresthesias, and associated weakness in the hand and wrist that radiate to the thumb, index finger, middle finger and ring finger. The best treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is using wrist splint brace. However, many patients aren’t aware that ordinary simple wrist splint worsens their carpal tunnel syndrome! Directly compression by splint exacerbates problem and pain. Furthermore, patient without entrapment neuropathy, using the wrist brace due to bones fracture, can suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome after many weeks of immobilization and wrist compression. Because of that, using the special wrist splint brace, reducing the carpal canal pressure is essential. REH4MAT introduced to mostly wrist braces innovative solution CTSyndrome. This is special pad on wrist splint which protects carpal canal against the excessive compression. Due to that fact, electrical impulses in median nerve go freely.
They come in various widths and thicknesses, are made of various types of plastics, such as polyamide, ABS or acrylic, and these features determine their stiffness. Thanks to their design, they are resistant to water, moisture and sweat. Products equipped with them can be washed without having to remove them from the orthosis. Our plastic stays work only in one direction, perfectly stabilize the laterally protected part of the body, adjusting to it at the same time and have a memory function, thanks to which they always return to their original shape. This function causes the stays in the orthosis to stabilize the swollen limb immediately after the injury and after the swelling has come off. The plastic stays cannot bend and that is why, they cannot correct the body posture or the secured joint.
