Have you lost control over lifting your hand? Do you have reduced strength in your wrist? Then you may not be able to lift your hand enough and use it properly: also called ‘wrist drop‘. For example this can be the effect of nerve damage to the arm due to a fracture or when the nerve is being pinched off too long, but also due to paralysis after a stroke.
The Wrist Orthosis ADWO gives you control over your wrist
The Ambroise Dynamic Wrist Orthosis (ADWO) is a lightweight wrist orthosis (also known as wrist splint or wrist brace) that pushes the hand up dynamically with the aid of an adjustable spring. The orthosis is very comfortable because contact with the (palm of the) hand and arm is kept minimal. This way you get maximum function over your wrist and hand with minimal intervention.
