Beige, 3.2 mm, non perf.
The purpose of this splint is to maintain the long flexor muscles stretched in order to inhibit the hypertonicity. This product is made of a Low Temperature Thermoplastic material and can be moulded directly on the patient.
This pattern is NOT SUITABLE for the following applications:
- acute fractures of wrist, thumb and carpal bones
- prolonged and aggressive use
- hypertonicity of the short flexor muscels
||How it works and looks
|Transparent when activated
||Transparency indicates when the material is ready to mould allows for proper alignment and visual monitoring over anatomical landmarks.
||Temporary adhesion during splint fabrication and reliable permanent bonding by using dry heat. Tackiness helps orthosis stay in place during fabrication. All attachnments and outriggers can be adhered easily.
|Excellent stretch (100%) without tearing
||Very precise moulding conforms to patient anatomy, for example in the hand arches and first web space. Accurate moulding Improves correct dispersion of skin pressure.
|Full elastic memory (100%)
||Completely remouldable and can be adjusted easily after reheating locally.
|Easy to trim edges
||Avoids waste of material.
