The history of orthopaedics If it wasn’t for the invention of the plaster cast, there probably wouldn’t be such thing as a LimbO. Here’s a little bit about the history of orthopaedics… You might be wondering why it’s called orthopaedics. Well, Nicholas Andry coined the term in 1741, deriving from the Greek words for ‘correct’/‘straight’ (‘orthos’) and ‘child’ (‘paidion’). This is because originally, orthopaedics was only used to treat musculoskeletal deformities in children.
Carpel tunnel syndrome is a fairly common condition which is characterised by a tingling sensation, numbness and sometimes pain in the hand and fingers. If surgery is used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, a LimbO will come in handy! The above symptoms tend to develop gradually and often begin by being worse during the night. The sensations are usually felt in the thumb, index finger and middle finger. You also may experience the dreaded pins and needles, weakness in your thumb and a dull ache in your hand or arm.
Bariatrics, in case you didn’t know, is the branch of medicine that concerns the study and treatment of obesity. LimbOs aren’t just for broken bones - there are several complications of obesity that a LimbO can help with.
We all know children hurt themselves every now and again as they’re constantly on the move. Here at Thesis Technology we want to make a child’s recovery from a broken bone as easy as possible. Whether it’s from an accident at the park, on the trampoline, at school on the playground or somewhere else, we can help make things that bit easier while you’re caring for your child during their time in a plaster cast.
