Check out our line of elbow, wrist, and shoulder braces in St. Catharines and their benefits. We offer the following braces:
Active support for targeted compression of the elbow
Tennis elbow or golfers elbow can cause irritation and pain that inhibits activity and performance. The EpiTrain® active support helps reduce this pain and relieve tension. As you move, the special knitted compressive support with its built-in visco-elastic pads stimulates the muscles and aids healing.
Stabilizing support for the treatment of tennis elbow
The EpiPoint® stabilizing support relieves tendon pain such as tennis elbow (epicondylitis lateral) and similar muscle and tendon attachment site irritation or inflammation. Its integral elastic pressure cushion (pad) relieves pressure on the tendon attachments at precisely the right points. A special red warning section indicates if the strap has been pulled too tightly and if the pressure is therefore too strong. It can be worn on either the left or the right arm.
In case of tenosynovitis (inflammation of the tendon in the wrist), arthritis of the wrist or following injury, ManuTrain® takes the strain off your wrist and provides pain relief. To do this, the flexible Train® active knitted fabric compressive inserts incorporated in it, taking pressure off nerves and blood vessels and relieving pain. An inner stay and an elastic strap stabilize the wrist, reducing irritation.
Stabilizing orthosis for immobilization of the wrist
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 unnecessary 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.
Stabilizing orthosis for stabilization of the thumb saddle and first metacarpophalangeal joints
Following thumb joint injuries, such as tears or sprain to the collateral ligaments ("skier's thumb"), or for indications of osteoarthritis (arthrosis of first carpometacarpal joint) or irritation, RhizoLoc stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint. A Velcro® tab allows the mobility of the joint to be limited as treatment requires.
In the case of irritation and combination injuries that affect the wrist as well as the thumb carpometacarpal joint and thumb basal joint, the ManuRhizoLoc immobilizes the wrist and holds the thumb securely in a relaxed position with a support. The construction of the orthosis can be individually adjusted in line with the progress of treatment, whereby the mobility of the thumb basal joint is gradually increased and eventually the thumb support can be removed.
Active support for early functional treatment of the shoulder joint
For shoulder complaints following injury or surgery, or caused by osteoarthritis, OmoTrain stabilizes the shoulder joint and provides secure joint guidance during movement thanks to its special strap system. The support activates the muscles and exerts a beneficial intermittent compression massage on the soft tissues, thereby relieving pain. If required, a removable massage pad (Delta pad) can provide additional massage for specific pain spots.
Active support for neuromuscular stabilization of the shoulder joint
The OmoTrain S support provides secure support for the shoulder joint and strongly promotes mobility in order to restore function. During each movement, the compression knit and a removable massage pad (Delta pad) massage the soft tissue, thereby relieving pain, and activate the musculature that stabilizes the joint. Thanks to its direct strap system, the support participates in every movement and is extremely quick and easy to put on. It is therefore particularly suitable for use in pain therapy, for immediate care for injuries, and for protection against further injuries both in everyday activities and in sport.
