Ottobock Epi Forsa Plus Elbow

SKU: OTT 50A3

Stable Epicondylitis Orthosis - Epi Forsa Plus 50A3

At a Glance

  • Precise, selected and adjustable compression of the forearm muscles
  • Relief of irritated tendons
  • Consistent, continuous pressure

The stable orthosis Epi Forsa Plus 50A3 is used to treat epicondylitis humeri radialis and epicondylitis humeri ulnaris. It is suitable for physical therapy after injuries or disease, and can also be used as a prophylactic orthosis for sports and everyday life.

Optimal Pressure Distribution due to Plastic Core Design

The Epi Forsa Plus, which comes in a universal size, has a stable, softly padded plastic core which prevents the orthosis from buckling and provides optimal pressure distribution. Due to the flexible insert strap, pressure can be continuously and dynamically controlled, and the pad makes targeted compression possible. The Epi Forsa Plus can be worn either on the left or right forearm with an easy change in pad position. Thanks to production technology, the orthosis is made without seams increases comfort, even at the edge of the orthosis.

A literature review of the treatment of epicondylitis lateralis with a circular lower arm orthosis showed that an orthosis such as the Epi Forsa Plus can pathophysiologically and biomechanically reduce neuromuscular activation and mechanical stress of the muscles normally affected in case of epicondylitis.

Pain Threshold is Increased for Passive Extension

Furthermore, the orthosis is able to increase the pain threshold for passive extension of the forearm musculature. Combining extension exercises and orthosis use can produce even better treatment outcomes.

Patients who are likely to benefit from a forearm orthosis can be identified with the help of the "Extensor Grip Test". The forearm of the patient is enclosed with a firm grip a few centimeters distally of hand extensor origin. If the patient reports a marked improvement during dorsal extension of the hand against resistance, then treatment with the Epi Forsa Plus is very likely to be successful.

Indication

  • Epicondylitis humeri radialis (tennis elbow)
  • Epicondylitis humeri ulnaris (golfer elbow)
