Orthoses, Upper Limb, Hand-Finger, Therapeutic, Splint

Definition : Therapeutic hand-finger upper-limb orthoses consisting of a semi-rigid structure (splint) that are designed to stabilize and support the hand and fingers, keeping its functional structure and providing a static (fixed) position. These orthoses typically consist of a splint with a component made of fabrics, leather, or plastic that is placed encircling the distal segment of the forearm and wrist. A second component is used to keep in appropriate position the fingers and thumb. Malleable aluminum strays connect both components providing a semi-rigid structure that allows the splint use without additional bandage. Static therapy hand-finger splints are used mainly to prevent finger contractures after brain damage.
