Static Hand Splint

Static Hand Splint

Intended for people who need a rest splint for their spastic hand

Finding rest

Ambroise has developed a customized Static Hand Splint (abbreviated as SHS), intended for people who suffer from spasticity in the hand, that restraining the muscles and joints from hand and wrist is necessary to give some rest. The use of this splint (also known as orthosis or brace) usually reduces pain, but the main goal is treating shortened muscles (contractures).

No more struggle during measurement

A custom made static resting splint for spastic hands is not new at all. Such splints have been made by almost every local orthopedic company for years. However, making such splints can be quite a struggle for both the client and the orthopedic therapist. A plaster print is made of your hand. The therapist must wrap wet plaster around your hand and correct your hand as much as possible while the plaster is drying, but keep it as quiet as possible in that position. A serious challenge with a spastic hand that tends when you touch it, or if you put the focus on your hand as a cliënt.

Making photos is easier

Photo measurement Static Hand SplintAmbroise has developed a technique that does not require that struggle. We use Velcro straps on a size board. Because this technique costs a lot less time, we have all the time to relax the hand. Once we have reached that rest, we do not have to touch or wrap the hand anymore. We only have to make two photos of it. One from above and one from the side from the thumb side.

Software does the rest

Our own developed software is able to turn the taken photos into a 3D-model of your hand. With that model we can then apply the desired correction position. The computer-controlled milling machine makes it a hard-foam production mold.


Not only faster, especially much easier for you and the orthopedic therapist!

Spasm

The Static Hand Splint (SHS) is intended for people who need a resting splint. In most cases, severe spasticity is the underlying problem. Spasm in the hand is common in central neurological disorders, such as a stroke (CVA).

Fighting contractures and reducing pain due to spasms is usually the purpose of the hand brace. The ever-convulsively contracting muscles, bring the wrist and fingers with maximum flexion bending,  can be very painful and eventually lead to shortening of these muscles (without treatment). As a result, fingers and wrist can not be stretched properly. In extreme cases, there is even a situation that the palm of the hand can not be reached. This part can not be kept clean anymore, which may even lead to intertrigo and subsequent inflammation. Therefore, timely treatment is necessary. The SHS may be part of that treatment.
