Hand Splint - Resting

Item # 269 (small)
Item # 267 (large)

This splint is supplied cut ready to be heated in boiling water, and can be used on either the left or right hand. Once heated in boiling water or with a hot air gun, or even a hot ladies hair dryer, the plastic will be pliable. Then mould it around the patient's hand and wrist, or even the therapist's own hand and wrist. To protect the skin from the heat, put a towel on the hand before moulding the splint to shape. Once the shape is correct, the splint can be quickly cooled by holding it under cold water.

The correctly finished splint is placed in the padded cover, both of which are designed for either the left or right hand. The thumb flaps are folded to avoid a seam touching the web area between the thumb and first finger.

Two splints are supplied with the cover. We recommend using the thinner splint as this will become pliable in about 20 seconds in boiling water and is easy to mould to shape. If alterations are necessary, parts of the splint can be reheated and remoulded. The thinner splint will allow the wrist to slightly flex and this may be beneficial for some patients. However if a stronger splint is needed, use the thicker splint. The thicker splint will take longer to heat before becoming pliable.

This product is to help with the prevention of pressure sores. Sometimes, due to the patient deteriorating, the product may become unsuitable. Continuous monitoring is necessary and alternative products may be recommended.

Washing: Hand or machine wash only, up to 80C. Do not tumble dry or wring - air dry only.
