Effects of a dynamic orthosis in an individual with claw deformity


, : Effects of a dynamic orthosis in an individual with claw deformity. Journal of Hand Therapy 28(4): 425-7; Quiz 428

These authors describe their utilization of a dynamic orthosis to correct a strong claw deformity in a patient with a median and ulnar laceration. After 4 weeks of wearing the dynamic orthosis, these authors noted that the patient was able to actively extend all his fingers orthosis-free, with no evidence of claw.--Victoria Priganc, PhD, OTR, CHT, CLT, Practice Forum Editor.
