Össur - Rigid dressing
The Össur Rigid Dressing (ÖRD) immobilises, protects and controls postoperative oedema in the transtibial residual limb immediately following transtibial amputation surgery. Immobilisation and oedema control are achieved by providing a firm dressing formed to match the volume and shape of the residual limb. The immobilisation will assist in prevention of contractures by restricting knee flexion. Effectively constraining and matching the volume of the residual limb will prevent an increase in oedema following surgery. Containing the residual limb provides protection from discomfort, caused by bed trauma or possible falls during early rehabilitation.
