Overview

What are Gaiters?

Jobskin® gaiters are fabric orthoses with metal inserts for strength, and are fastened around the limb with hook and loop straps. Our gaiters aim to keep the affected limb in a controlled and stabilised extension for rehabilitation and/or provide a prolonged stretch to the limb to reduce contractures; or to passively stretch and support in a different angle of flexion for contractures.

These gaiters are made-to-measure and can feature a choice of drill lining or padded Terry cloth lining.

Features

  • To control, stabilise, limit or immobilise an extremity joint
  • Reducing pain and discomfort by maintaining or increasing range of movement at the joint
  • Restricting the motion of a limb in a particular direction
  • Speeding up the rehabilitation process after a limb is fractured or broken and the cast removed
  • Extension gaiters for keeping the arm or leg in extension for prolonged stretch / immobilisation. (see Extension Leg Gaiters)
  • Flexion gaiters are recommended if flexion is required due to contractures for example (Maximum flexion angle 80 degrees). Please email: clinics@jobskin.co.uk if you have any queries.
  • Deluxe gaiters feature padded towelling lining for additional comfort and are recommended for prolonged use.
  • Extensive pattern choice that is regularly updated.

How to wear Gaiters

  1. Undo all the hook and loop fastener straps and place on a stable surface with the lining facing upwards. Ensure the top (widest) part of the gaiter is closest to you.
  2. Carefully straighten the limb as much as possible, and place it onto the gaiter ensuring the narrow part of the gaiter is in line with the wrist or ankle.
  3. Fold the gaiter around the limb, ensure that the 'tongue' is flattened out beneath the overlapping edge.
  4. Fasten the hook and loop fasteners securely but do not over tighten. The gaiter should be a comfortable garment to wear and not restrict circulation.
