Manu Neurexa Hand Orthosis
Early commencement of rehabilitation after a stroke
Secure positioning of the wrist joint and hand
The arm or wrist may be paralysed following a stroke or peripheral nerve damage. Your movements are restricted and you are no longer able to use your hand properly.
The Manu Neurexa stabilises and supports your wrist joint and hand in a natural, neutral position. This encourages active movement, since the more you use your hand and the earlier you start rehabilitation, the more mobility is restored.
The hook-and-loop closure can be fully opened. This makes it easier for you to put on and take off the wrist orthosis on your own.
The plastic splint is individually adapted to you by your orthopaedic technician. It provides the required support for the hand and wrist joint in the correct position.
The climate control material (Outlast) counteracts heat development. This reduces perspiration and the orthosis can also be worn for longer periods of time.
Benefits at a glance
The more often you use your hand and wrist joint again, the more freedom of movement is restored. In order to make this possible, the Manu Neurexa stabilises your hand and wrist joint in a more natural and neutral position. By doing so, the orthosis makes it easier for you to practice movements in your wrist joint with your therapist.
Comfortable to wear
The Manu Neurexa is made of a very comfortable material (Outlast). Soft edges prevent chafing and sores. Perspiration should be reduced when you wear the orthosis all day. This is why the Manu Neurexa is made of a temperature-regulating material which provides you with the required comfort.
Protecting the hand and wrist joint
