Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nonexpendable items used in the performance of orthopedic surgery and related therapy. They are differentiated from ORTHOTIC DEVICES, apparatus used to prevent or correct deformities in patients.

Devices which are used in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and diseases.

The specialty or practice of nursing in the care of the orthopedic patient.

The planned and carefully managed manual movement of the musculoskeletal system, extremities, and spine to produce increased motion. The term is sometimes used to denote a precise sequence of movements of a joint to determine the presence of disease or to reduce a dislocation.
