Demid has received orthoses

Demid Korolev from Tver has been rendered help in the form of express orthotics. Orthoses (removable joint immobilizers) on the wrist, fetlock and phalangeal joints of both hands have been produced for the boy to eliminate the contractures and to fix the joints in a functionally beneficial position to avoid further deterioration. The items are to be worn in the day and night time.   


In future as Demid grows out of the orthoses and/or his condition improves, these orthoses (removable joint immobilizers) can be reconstructed with the possibility of further use of the items.


Manufacture of the orthoses took about 30 minutes. The express orthotics was performed directly on the child’s body, which allowed fast and effective orthotics without any trying on and fitting.

 

The orthoses were paid for due to the work of the Whole World program of development of public charity.


We wish Demid good luck and speedy recovery!

 



Othoses for Demid

Demid is 5; he lives with his mother in Glinkovo village, Tver region.

 

The boy has difficulties unbending his both hands due to the deformity of the right wrist joint. Due to the contractures of the joints Demid cannot perform push-ups or bridging, clap his hands; the fingers of both hands are often in a bent condition.

 

To preserve the joints in the functioning condition the orthopedist recommended the boy to wear special orthoses on both hands.  

 

 Demid’s mother is a teacher of English in a secondary school and raises the child alone. The family cannot afford to pay for the expensive orthoses which cost 44,500 rubles and they strongly hope for our help.
