Becker Oregon offers the BRAE Orthosis
January 01, 2007
The BRAE Orthosis is designed for the management of forearm rotation contractures using a static progressive stretching protocol. The orthosis is useful for treatment of forearm contractures as a result of upper-extremity fractures and injuries. Forearm rotation is adjusted by means of a dual offset channel with a patented overlapping adjustable rotation component.
Benefits include the following:
- Maintains post-surgical forearm rotation positioning.
- Decreases substitution that can result from misalignment of the mechanical to anatomical axis for forearm rotation.
- Maintains static progression of infinite positions in both supination and pronation.
- Controls forearm rotation position while allowing free motion in the sagittal plane.
