Wrist extension anti-deviation splint
Initial stages of rheumatoid arthritis, with inflammation of the distal radioulnar joint.
Push the thumb through the hole of pattern A and mould around the hand.
Mould pattern B on the forearm, taking care to fully cover the ulnar side of the wrist.
Attach the fixation straps of both sections of the splint.
- Attach an Orfitube dorsally on the ulnar side of the forearm section (pattern B) as well as on the hand portion (pattern A).
- Stick an Orfit Classic 3.2 mm (1/8″) rod on the radial side for use as a hinging connection piece.
Tie a thick piece of elastic in the Orfitube.
Finishing: Leave room for the ulnar styloid process and apply some soft foam material at the level of the wrist.
