The Children’s Wilmer Elbow Orthosis (also called brace or splint) is the children’s version (as the name indicates) of the Wilmer Elbow Orthosis for adults. The Children’s Wilmer Elbow Orthosis (Abbreviated CWEO) is a super light and super slim orthosis intended for children who do not have enough power in either the muscles that control elbow flexion (bending) (m. biceps brachii) or the muscles that control extension (stretching) of the elbow (m. triceps brachii).
Due to a clever spring system, the orthosis helps to bend the arm (or stretch, depending on the chosen version). The spring is adjustable so that you can find just the right amount of support needed in the individual case of the child.
