Wrist Supports for Flaccid Paralysis
Flaccid Paralysis is when the wrist becomes floppy and unresponsive, caused by extreme muscle weakness and loss of muscle tone. It is caused by the lack or response from the tendons in the surrounding area and can make everyday life extremely difficult. Flaccid paralysis can be the result of a stroke and while the symptoms may only last a few days for some patients, it can linger for months for others.
The use of a wrist support for flaccid paralysis helps to hold the hand and wrist in a neutral and comfortable position, encouraging circulation and preventing strain on the other muscles and ligaments as they attempt to compromise for this weakness. The gentle compression helps to support and stabilise the hand, as well as relieving any pain felt. The correct position and support is essential for someone suffering from flaccid paralysis to prevent additional problems further down the line.
There are a range of wrist supports for flaccid paralysis available here at Health and Care. This allows you to find the one that is best suited for your requirements as well as selecting the correct size to ensure you are getting the right level of support. A badly fitted wrist support is likely to worsen the condition due to being either too restrictive or not providing the support you need to encourage the healing process.
