Malleable palmar and dorsal aluminum stays are easily bent to immobilize the patient's hand in the intrinsic plus position with the metacarpophalangeal (MP) joints flexed at 60-70° and the interphalangeal (IP) joints fully extended.
The molded plastic clamshell design protects and supports the fourth and fifth metacarpals without restricting the flexion of the MP joints. The polypropylene felt liner provides superb padding and allows moisture to rapidly evaporate away from the skin.
The metacarpal closure strap features our patented V-Strap Retention System that prevents the strap from sliding out of the plastic buckle when applying or removing the splint. In addition, the finger and wrist closure straps are made with a soft elastic material that may easily be adjusted as swelling increases or subsides.
