Gaiters are fabric orthoses, worn on either the arms or legs to keep the elbows or knees straight and stabilised. These gaiters feature three steel inserts which immobilise the joint to hold it in extension whilst preventing excessive movement. Four straps can be used to tighten the gaiter around the limb.
