Intended use: The main indications for the brace in resting position is stroke, CP, rheumatoid arthritis, radialis paresis, muscular dystrophy, oedema or plexus injury.
We have accessories for this device: S.O.T finger divider, S.O.T MCP wedge, and S.O.T wrist strap- see separate products.
Many stroke patients over time may get a variety of complications, such as spasticity, paralysis, pain, loss of sensation, decreased proprioception and oedema of the hand and arm. These complications can cause a reduction of mobility in the hand and eventually contractures may develop (the hand and fingers will not straighten). Therefore, it is important to start with orthotic treatment, along with hand therapy at an early stage, before spasticity is established.
S.O.T is a resting splint for the spastic and paretic hand, when the goal is to maintain or increase the mobility of the hand. The orthosis is smooth and lightweight. The S.O.T has an aluminium core which allows adjustment to the desired position. The aluminium core is embedded into polyethylene foam, which is covered with fabric. The brace is delivered in a resting position. A resting position can offer pain relief, relaxation to the hand and it also provides a good biomechanical position that may reduce the risk of flexor shortening of the wrist and fingers.
Patients suffering with rheumatoid pain may benefit from S.O.T as it prevents the hand from falling into unfavourable painful positions. The orthosis can be readjusted into POSI or Intrinsic-Plus Position.
