What to buy with Rolyan Sof-Stretch Coil Extension Splint
How To Use Rolyan Sof-Stretch Splint?
1. Hold the proximal and distal pads and gently slide the splint onto the finger.
- The positioning of the proximal pad depends on which splint is being used.
Rolyan Sof Stretch Extension Splint: position the proximal pad on the volar aspect of the MCP head
The Rolyan Sof Stretch Short Extension Splint (both styles): position the proximal pad distal to the volar aspect of the MCP head
- The distal pad should rest at or proximal to the DIP joint, and the dorsal pad should be proximal to the PIP joint.
2. To increase the force of extension, with the splint of the finger apply pressure to the volar pads, bending them away from each other and flattening the splint.
3. To decrease the force of extension, with the splint of the finger squeeze the two volar pads together under the dorsal pad.
4. The width of the splint can be increased by stretching the wires laterally. Do not attempt to make major modifications in the splint instead, use a different size. Care And Cleaning:
- Hand wash with warm water and mild soap. Allow to air dry thoroughly before reapplication.
- These splints are to be fitted initially by a healthcare professional who is familiar with the purpose for which they are prescribed. The healthcare practitioner is responsible for providing wearing instructions and precautions to other healthcare practitioners, care providers involved in the patients care, and the patient.
- If unusual swelling, skin discoloration or discomfort occurs, use should be discontinued and a healthcare professional consulted.
- Not for fixed bony contractures resulting from extrinsic tendon tightening or other structural changes
