SPINE

The spine has three main sections, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar. There are seven cervical vertebrae (C1-C7), twelve thoracic (T1-T12), and five lumbar (L1-L5). In addition, there are two fused vertebrae, the sacrum and the coccyx.

The twelve thoracic and five lumbar vertebrae make up the thoracolumbar spine. The cervical spine supports the head and allows anterior, posterior, and lateral flexion and extension, plus rotation of the head and neck. C2, called the axis, forms a pivot with C1, called the atlas, around which the head rotates on the cervical spine. Normal curvature is lordotic (eyes pointing up).

The thoracolumbar spine (T1-L5) has two normal curvatures, lordotic in the lumbar region and kyphotic in the thoracic region. The primary spinal functions are to maintain an erect posture, provide stability and mobility, transmit loads, absorb shocks, and protect the spinal cord.


SHOULDER

The shoulder support offers extra elastic support for the upper arm. The postural correction belt is helpful for clavicle fractures and round shoulder problems by helping align the bones and joint.


 

ELBOW

The orthosis for the elbow helps resolve tennis and golf elbow problems. Provides ideal compression force and retains heat to break adhesions of the soft tissue.


WRIST

The wrist support can help repetitive motion and over-stretch injuries. Adequate compression force relieves pain and allows patient to return to activity easily.


HAND

The adjustable finger splint maintain finger into neutral position and suitable support to improve tissue recovery .


HIP

The outside elastic force and anchor surrounding the waist stabilize the hip joint. The hip support can relieve heavy weight-bearing from the thigh and hip muscle.


THIGH&SHIN

The support covering the muscle bulk can retain the heat in the tissue. The therapeutic warmth provides comfort to the tissue and breaks the adhesion of the muscle and fascia to ensure a smooth motion.


KNEE

The orthosis offers three levels of support: primary, intensive, and extreme. There are also three functions: prevent, protect, and assist.


 

ANKLE

The ankle orthosis offers gentle pressure and motion control to help prevent further strains or sprains.
