FlexiOH® Full arm immobilizers are designed for immobilization in above elbow (supracondylar), at the elbow knob and at the inside of elbow tip. The Full arm immobilizer is engineered with new features designed to provide secure and comfortable support. Patients can do daily activities while wearing this immobilizer. For application of FlexiOH® full arm immobilizer, doctors need to apply it on the patient’s hand with the zip and then cure it with the Rizycure® light device (recommended) or direct sunlight for around 5-10 minutes depending on the size of immobilizer. Once it is rigid , it will take the shape of the patient’s hand for support during the treatment.
FlexiOH® Full Arm Immobilizer comes in 5 different sizes :XS, S, M, L and XL. All of the immobilizers vary in terms of palm, wrist, forearm circumference, maximum arm circumference, wrist to elbow length and elbow to upper arm length. For the best fit of FlexiOH® full arm immobilizer, taking the measurement of the patient’s hand is necessary before application.
