BRACE CORRECTION

The application of braces to correct nails (orthonyxie) looks back on quite a history. This is a proven method for sustainable and pain-free corrections for a number of problematic nail changes and diseases. In this brochure, we will present you with and explain step-by-step two up-to-date and innovative techniques, to provide you with easy access to this specific field of podiatry. Of course, no brochure, however detailed, can replace a proper training course. It can, however, offer the possibility to inform oneself in detail about new techniques. Teaching models, training DVD and last but not least seminars and further training opportunities form an overall concept for a professional practice.

Individual video sequences explain step-by-step the correct preparation, practice, and application. This ideally supports self-study or school teaching.


The ORTOGRIP System

The correction brace ORTOGRIP professional uses the reliable VHO Osthold principle; this is a 3-part brace with a twistable mid-section loop to exactly dose the traction. Even medical doctors and health insurances were impressed by this method, and a dissertation about this subject (by Dr. Jörg Harrer) proves the braces’ high efficiency.

Can good things be improved? „Yes, we can!“

In cooperation with Elvira Osthold, RUCK’s developer team has created a new brace system, while maintaining all advantages of the “Osthold technique” and enhancing it even further through improved handling and clarity. The effect remains, however, the application is easier now.

The “brace with a handle” is now improved by the coloured plastic component, and the various models can now be differentiated through the different colours. In order to provide for various requirements, the new system features different “roof geometries” and wire strengths.

Combined with the teaching models for self-study at home, this will provide a new dimension of professional and careful treatment of many nail problems. In the following chapter, you will find step-by-step instructions for the easy relief of anguished nails. RUCK does not only provide the perfect product, but also all the information, training, and specific continuing education required.

ORTOGRIP PROFESSIONAL
Application of ORTOGRIP professional
ORTOGRIP Application Step 1

Preparation

Clean the nail fold with a gouge blade or nail probe and remove the ingrown nail part. Roughen the nail surface and clean with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner (for improved adhesion).

ORTOGRIP Application Step 2

Preparatory tamponade

To expand the nail fold, place the tamponades, pre-soaked with “peclavus Vorbehandlung” (5-8 minutes residence time) in the nail fold to appease the treatment zones.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 3

Customize the brace’s “roof geometry”

Select the suitable brace size with the help of the customization test. The criteria are the lengths of the “action parts”, i.e. roof length and the wire strength. The following rule applies: The longer the roof length, the wider the nail. The stronger the wire, the more force may be applied.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 4

Customize the brace’s hooks

If required, minimize the end hooks with a rounded nail cutter or with RUCK’s own “round-step cutter”. Shorten the hook ends with a side cutter and grind them a little thinner with a diamond file. Remove the preparatory tamponade.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 5

Place the brace on the nail

Twist the brace and put it in the fold, the brace’s roof (V-imprint on the brace) always points in the patient’s direction. Fixate the brace's end with a new tamponade and attach the brace’s roof with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR adhesive and activator to the nail. Use the side cutter to cut the brace just below the plastic handle (hold with thumb to prevent it from slipping away). The same procedure applies to the other side of the brace; however, a fixation with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR adhesive is not required. This part of the brace remains for now to facilitate easier application.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 6

Add sling

Depending on the requirements, the distance between both sides needs to be adjusted by flexing with pointed pliers. Both curved ends are connected with the help of the loop (eye hooks show upwards!). A special hook probe is used to get hold of both eye hooks. Turning in a clockwise direction while simultaneously pulling connects the two brace parts and creates the desired tension. The resulting loop is cut in a way so that two to three turns remain.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 7

Covering

All protruding wire ends need to be cut as closely to the nail as possible. Mix plastic powder and hardener liquid (lukewarm!) in a mixing bowl until a smooth consistency forms. Let it run from the spatula on to the wire ends, to form a drop that fully covers the ends. The drop can be further formed with some hardener liquid, if necessary. Don’t forget to clean the mixing bowl and spatula after use.

ORTOGRIP Application Step 8

Rework

If impurities have occurred, replace the tamponade and soak it with peclavus® Nachbehandlung (pain-relieving and soothing follow-up treatment).

The GOLDSTADT System

For many years now, the well-proven Goldstadt brace plays an integral part in professional foot care.

Versatility, user friendliness and last but not least the attractive appearance make this a real treat among the different brace models available on the market. The GOLDSTADT professional brace represents not only the next generation of brace design but also a new dimension of product development.

By popular customer demand we are proud to present:
a brace finished for every intended purpose. Three designs in five widths, respectively, provide the perfect brace for each nail. The braces (full or semi) are available in two strengths (0.1 and 0.15mm). The depth (2 or 3mm) depends on the brace’s width. The brace ends of full/semi-braces are pre-defined, thus, no customizing required. Furthermore, gold-coated ends are anti-inflammatory and due to their rounded ends almost painless.

The GOLDSTADT professional is not “well-rounded” to please the eye only.

GOLDSTADT PROFESSIONAL
Application of GOLDSTADT professional Details
Full brace Details
GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 1

Preparation

Clean the nail fold with a gouge blade or nail probe, cut the nail, grind the nail surface (with a grinder) and clean with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner.

GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 2

Preparatory tamponade

To expand the nail fold, place the tamponades (Copoline), pre-soaked with “peclavus Vorbehandlung” (5-8 minutes residence time) in the nail fold to appease the treatment zones.

GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 3

Measuring aid / brace size

Easy to handle: RUCK’s NAGELKORREKTUR measuring device: Place one end at the nail fold, mark 0 point on the nail surface. Measure from the opposite side to the 0 mark and add up the results, e.g. left side 10mm, right side 13mm - = brace 23.

GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 4

Place the brace on the nail

Form the brace ends with the rounded nail cutter, observing a tapered shape towards the lunula. Place on one side and just lightly slide with the applicator towards the back. Then place the second side on the nail and cautiously move both sides towards their final position. The resulting basic tension will be increased with movement; therefore, it is extremely important to exactly fix the brace without the patient experiencing any pain. Degrease the entire nail surface once again with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner and protect the nail folds with tamponades.

GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 5

Covering

Add UV cure RUCK-PEDIQUE Silver plus on approx. 80 % of the nail surface in the direction of the nail tip. The gel may directly join the tamponade. Cure the gel for approx. two minutes. Remove the dispersion layer with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner. Immediately close the gel’s lid after use and put the brush into the cleaning liquid. Remove the tamponades.

GOLDSTADT Full brace - Application Step 6

Rework

If impurities have occurred, replace the tamponade and soak it with peclavus® Nachbehandlung (pain-relieving and soothing follow-up treatment) or AntiMYX. Application for very thin nails or inflamed nail folds

GOLDSTADT Half brace - Application Step 3

Measuring aid / brace size

Use the measuring aid to measure up to the opposite fold. IMPORTANT: The shorter the brace, the stronger the tension! The decision as to the brace’s length needs to reflect the intended effect.

GOLDSTADT Half brace - Application Step 4

Place the brace on the nail

Form the brace ends with the rounded nail cutter, observing a tapered shape towards the lunula. Use RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner to clean and degrease the nail surface and brace, tamponade the nail fold. Moisten the nail surface with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Activator, use RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR adhesive for the brace’s bottom side, place the brace's end into the nail fold and keep it with your finger in place, press the glued part of the brace with the applicator to the nail (20-40 seconds). Cover with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Activator and remove the excess adhesive. Tip: Do not press too hard on the nail as to not squeeze adhesive out from between brace and nail since it would diminish the brace’s adhesive properties.

GOLDSTADT Half brace - Application Step 5

Covering

Add UV cure RUCK-PEDIQUE Silver plus on approx. 80 % of the nail surface in the direction of the nail tip. The gel may directly join the tamponade. Cure the gel for approx. two minutes.

GOLDSTADT Adhesive brace - Application Step 4

Applying the brace to the nail

Degrease the nail surface and brace with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Cleaner, use RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Activator for one half of the nail surface, put RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR adhesive to the bottom side of the brace (one half). Apply the brace and press with applicator to nail (20-40 seconds). 2. Prepare the other half with RUCK NAGELKORREKTUR Activator, wet the brace with adhesive and press down with force. Remove excess adhesive.

GOLDSTADT professional Adhesive brace

The adhesive brace is excellent for very thin nail plates or when the nail fold is very sensitive or inflamed. For application the adhesive brace remains 2-4 mm flatter than the curvature of the nail, retaining its gentle but sustained bending force. The gold plating effectively promotes adhesion. Compared with plastic braces, this design is very flat and attractive in its appearance. Sterilisable.

GOLDSTADT professional Half brace

The half brace can be used where the problem only exists on one side of the nail or part of the nail plate is missing. It is also advisable to choose a half brace if the neighbouring toe causes a lot of pressure, which could result in pain from rubbing. Half braces generally provide less bending force than full braces because the free lever is simply glued flat on to the surface. The half brace is a very gentle option which is suitable for thin nails and children's nails. Sterilisable.

GOLDSTADT professional Full brace

The full brace covers the whole nail surface and evenly distributes the leverage over the nail plate. It is the tool of choice for nails that are ingrown on both sides, particularly on the big toe or very thickened nails. Before application the width of the nail should be measured; we recommend the RUCK® NAIL CORRECTION measuring tool. This makes it easy to identify the correct width of GOLDSTADT professional. Sterilisable.
