Madelung’s Deformity is a condition in which one bone in the forearm is larger than the other. It is treated with surgery to lengthen the smaller bone. After surgery, the patient may have difficulty rotating the forearm.
A custom-made brace helps the patient to increase range of motion. Each day, the patient puts moderate pressure on the handle until feeling a small stretch. This is done four or five times throughout the day, with 10 repetitions each time. The patient usually uses the brace for two to three months.
