FLEXTEND® may be used for the following conditions
Can assist in correcting possible muscle imbalances causing
compression of the carpal tunnel; as wells as increasing flexibility and stability
of the hand, wrist and elbow.
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
Can help improve the endurance of extensor muscles which increases
grip strength and range of motion in flexion and extension of the
fingers and wrist.
- Medial and Lateral
Can help strengthen injured tendons/muscles. A direct injury, or repeated
trauma, to a tendon/muscle causes inflammation and decrease in its
use, which leads to muscle atrophy, and greater possibility of re-injuring
that tendon/muscle when activities are resumed.
Can help increase circulation and joint range of motion.
- Sympathetic Reflex
Can help decrease nerve irritation and compression.
- Hand Paraparesis
Can help regain mobility of the hand.
Can help regain range of motion to injured areas after surgery.
Can help strengthen injured tendons to prevent re-injury.
- Sprains and Strains
Can help strengthen damaged/over-stretched muscles.
Can help stabilize sloppy/loose joints.
- Short flexor tendons
Can help lengthen overly tight, short, tendons and muscles.
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
May help relieve compression of soft tissues located on medial elbow
- Guyons Syndrome
