An elbow contracture is a loss of range of motion at the joint of either flexion or extension, typically after an elbow fracture or a burn. The functional range of motion for the elbow is between 30 to 130 deg, however full extension to 0 degrees is normal.
Orthosis function is used to provide a passive stretch over a long period of time to stretch the soft tissues providing increased range of motion. There are a number of orthoses used for this condition with Mackie Elbow orthosis our most common as there is infinite adjustment to joint ROM (Range of Motion).
