Turnbuckle Functional Position Splint
AliMed Turnbuckle Functional Position Splint These static progressive splints help maintain gains in ROM achieved through stretching and splint wear. The steel rod-and-turnbuckle mechanism provides a low-load stretch to the joint to gradually reduce a wrist flexion contracture while maintaining a functional hand position. The turnbuckle can be quickly and easily adjusted with the splint in place for optimal positioning. New triangular turnbuckle shape offers a better grip for ease of turning.
Rigid Kydex splint shell is hinged at the wrist, with the turnbuckle connecting the hand and forearm portions of the splint. Soft padded two-part Beta Pile II cover is comfortable against skin and is removable for washing. Padded straps are reinforced with hook-and-loop closures in areas of repetitive closure for added durability. Splint adjusts from 80º of wrist flexion to 60º of wrist extension. For appropriate fit, patient must have passive finger extension, and wrist contracture cannot exceed 90º flexion.
