The Mackie Wrist brace provides static stretch for conservative treatment of soft tissue contractures that are less than six months from onset. The goal of this treatment is to accomplish a low stretching force maintained over a long period of time. This will safely and effectively stretch soft tissue contractures with lasting results. The brace may be used post-operatively or for contractures due to trauma, post-op adhesions, immobilization, muscle strength imbalance, arthritis, burns, cerebral palsy, stroke, or traumatic brain injury to maximize range of motion.

The Mackie Wrist Brace is designed to stretch soft tissue contractures and return the maximum range of motion possible to the joint. This treatment is usually prescribed following surgery and in addition to other therapeutic measures. The patient should discuss the wearing schedule with the physician who prescribed the brace.
