ManuLoc® is a wrist brace which is prescribed for use following diagnosis of irritative conditions of the wrist such as carpal tunnel syndrome or after an operation or other irritation. It keeps the wrist positioned properly while allowing gripping movements, avoiding unneccesary stress. The breathable materials and air pores make it particularly lightweight and allow it to fit tightly. ManuLoc® still feels comfortable even after hours of wear.
This stabilizing orthosis supports the wrist without hindering everyday actions. Following bruising or a sprain, it protects and supports the hand while the irritation subsides. It is designed to provide the necessary support while allowing freedom of movement for the fingers, thanks to features such as its generous thumb opening. Wearing the orthosis prevents you from making movements that could cause pain, but your hand is still able to grip objects. The ManuLoc can be worn on the right wrist or the left.
The materials and design of the ManuLoc are intended to speed up the healing of the affected wrist, without restricting movement unnecessarily. It is very easy to put on and take off – especially with just one hand. The orthosis can be opened completely using large micro Velcro fastenings. The strap ends with an integrated pull-back stop device allow the fastenings to be secured quickly and without great effort. Moisture can pass through the breathable fabric, so perspiration does not accumulate under the orthosis. The orthosis has a flat design and is made of velour and micro Velcro, which enables it to be worn comfortably under your clothes, without pulling any threads, and also makes it particularly lightweight.
ManuLoc stabilizing orthosis and other Bauerfeind products are available from medical and other orthopedic retailers, where trained staff will advise you and take precise measurements to ensure that your orthosis fits comfortably and securely.
