Achimed®

Achilles tendon support with integrated anatomically formed silicone  pad

Achimed
Indications
  1. conservative and postoperative treatment following proximal fractures of the head of the humerus, the glenoid cavity and the scapula, ac joint luxation
  2. conservative treatment for painful osteoarthritis of the shoulder
  3. postoperative treatment after shoulder joint prostheses
  4. conservative treatment for acute and chronic anterior dislocation of the shoulder
  5. postoperative treatment after stabilisation of the shoulder joint
  6. reconstruction of the rotator cuff insertions and refixation of the biceps tendon anchor (SLAP lesion)
Mode of action
  1. limitation and prevention of injurious movements thanks to the adjustable, marked limitation of external rotation, abduction and anteflexion of the shoulder joint
  2. the elastic knit exerts gentle local compression on the superficial soft-tissues to limit and counteract swelling and reduce muscular tension
  3. reduced tone in the muscles surrounding the shoulder corrects postural deficits in the shoulder with better centering of the head of the humerus in the glenoid cavity as well as easing shoulder pain
Features
  1. flexible strap system permits individual adjustment and variable limitation of movement at the shoulder joint
  2. highly elastic, active breathing and moisture-transporting clima-comfort® fabric, anatomically knitted around the upper arm and shoulder
  3. intelligent strap positioning ensures comfortable wearing and unrestricted function, even in everyday clothing
  4. suitable for long-term use over several weeks
