The effect of common wrist orthoses on the stiffness of wrist rotations.

Daniel B Seegmiller, Dennis L Eggett, Steven K Charles,

Wrist orthoses (also known as splints, braces, or supports) are commonly used to support or restrict the motion of a weak or injured wrist. These orthoses generally function by stiffening the wrist joint. Therefore, choosing the proper orthosis (or improving orthoses) requires that we understand their stiffness properties. In this ...
