Orthotics support or protect the musculoskeletal system and are used after operations, accidents, congenital misalignments or age-related wear.. Misconductions and faults can be prevented by an orthosis, which is used for the repositioning, stabilization, relief, guidance or correction of limbs or the trunk. Orthopedic aids are used in the short or long term. The difference with elastic bandages is that orthoses are made of firmer materials such as for example plastic exist in order to specifically limit movements or to correct deformities on the skeleton.

Through the targeted stabilization and movement guidance of an orthosis, operations are supported post-operatively and accompanied by the shoulders. This promotes functional development-unwanted axle and rotational movements are prevented by anatomical adaptation and joint guidance.
