Description

Scandi Orthopedic orthoses deliver effective complementary treatment options when surgery is not possible, or as an extra insurance for a successful post-operative rehabilitation. Four grades of support are provided across all their orthoses as summarised in the diagram.

Three grades of carpal orthosis are stocked in the UK along with the intermediate Grade 2.5. They combine neoprene and Velcro to provide highly customisable supports which may be hand washed at 30°C. Grade 4 orthoses should be sourced from Scandi Orthopedic. Please contact us if you need assistance with this. View the UK catalogue here

All orthosis may be hand washed using mild detergent at 30oC. The thermoplastic insert used in Grades 2.5 and 3 should be washed in cold water only.

Size Measurements

Take measurements in centimetres with the animal standing. Please refer to the diagram to the above for the correct position of the measurements. We suggest writing down the measurements, then refer to the table for the grade of support you require to identify the correct size. 
1. Measure the circumference of the carpal joint
2. Measure the distance from the elbow to the top of the paw

Each measurement should fall within the indicated range. The supports are highly customisable, hence the size can be fine tuned to achieve a good fit.

Grade 1 Carpal orthosis

A light flexible support for minor sprains or post-operatively to reduce inflammation and pain.

  • Prevents re-injury
  • Reinforces joint position sensing (Proprioception)
  • Reduces carpal joint deviations and hyper-extension
 Size Measurement 1 (up to) cm Measurement 2
Extra Small 10 6.5 - 11
Small 12.5 9 - 16

The degree of stabilisation and the direction you want to stabilise the joint is adjustable with the Velcro stabilising straps. Provides lateral and medial support and prevents carpal joint deviation and hyper-extension.

  • Provides medium support and pain reduction of the injured area while allowing some movement.
  • For use after trauma and post-operatively.
  • Use as a step down in support following a splint or cast.

Provides lateral and medial support and prevents hyper-extension. Uses shapeable thermo-plastic stabilisers that can be removed to allow for more movement downgrading the level of support.

  • For medium tendon injuries and medium arthrosis
  • Protects against re-injury
  • Promotes joint position sensing (Proprioception)
  • Reduces carpal joint deviations and hyper-extension

Grade 3 Carpal Orthosis

    Stabilises the carpal joint with rigid support. Post-operative and conservative treatment for medium to severe sprains and medium arthrosis. Provides rigid lateral and medial support and prevents carpal joint movement.

    The orthosis uses a shapeable thermoplastic fabric to turn it into an immobilising cast after heating, with the benefit of easy removal for skin inspection and for early rehabilitation. Easy to shape, quick to apply and non-toxic, it can be removed to allow for more movement (this turns it into a Grade 2). The orthosis comes with a waterproof, breathable cover made with Scandi-Tex. 

    A rigid orthosis that immobilises the carpal joint and paw is also available as a Grade 3 option. Contact us for more information.

    • Immobilises the carpal joint
    • Reduces carpal joint deviations and hyper-extension
    • Postoperative and conservative treatment
    • Medium to severe sprains and arthrosis
