This splint is designed for those with arthritis who are experiencing ulnar deviation or ulnar drift. This condition involves swelling in the metacarpophalangeal joints (the big knuckles at the base of the fingers) causing the fingers to become displaced and shift sideways towards the little finger.
This splint has sturdy straps that run from the palm side to the back of your hand and wrap back around to attach with Velcro to the palm side of the brace, pulling each finger back to the correct position. This helps reduce the pain caused by your fingers pointing in the wrong direction.
Made with Neoprene to keep the arm and hand warm and to stimulate circulation. The Neoprene comes up over the knuckles to increase circulation all the way up to the fingers.
A removable aluminum stay on the palm side of the brace is pre-formed to keep the wrist in a neutral position, further reducing joint pain
The glove-like design makes it easy to put this brace on and take it off
Made in Vancouver, BC.
Careful washing will prolong the life of the brace. Remove all stays before washing. Hand wash with a non-detergent washing solution, and air dry (away from the sun and heating vents). Do not put the brace in the washing machine or dryer.
