Orthoses, Upper Limb, Finger, Carpo-Metacarpal/Metacarpo-Phalangeal Joint

Definition : Finger upper-limb orthoses designed to encompass the carpo-metacarpal and metacarpo-phalangeal (CMC/MP) joints of the thumb during therapeutic or functional procedures. These orthoses consist of a variety of devices, frequently including a semi-rigid lightweight plastic structure with aluminum stays (e.g., splints), closure straps, and sleeves that place the thumb in abducted position. Thumb CMC/MCP orthoses are used to help the hand carry out normal functional activities. Less frequently the devices are used to prevent further development of finger or thumb deformities during rehabilitation after surgery or trauma.
