Splinting Techniques: Video 1 of 10

In this video, a wrist and thumb orthosis that serves to immobilize the wrist, the basal joint and the MCP joint of the thumb is created. This type of immobilization splint is recommended during the treatment of several indications, including but not limited to:

  • Post-surgical thumb basal joint arthritis
  • Thumb and wrist sprains
  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Follow-up treatment of scaphoid fracture

The demonstrated material is a pre-cut model from Orfit Classic 2.0mm micro-perforated. The same orthosis can be fabricated by designing this same pattern out of an Orfit classic 2.0mm sheet.
