EDS – Swan Neck Splints
Use the Swan Neck Splint for mild to moderate hyperextension (less than 20°) of the PIP(joint closest to palm) or DIP(joint closest to nail). Worn on the finger or the thumb, the Swan Neck Splint blocks hyperextension without limiting the joint’s full range of motion. Both proximal and distal portions of the splint are individually sized and elliptically shaped for an exact fit.
The splints can often be overlapped by enlarging the distal size of the PIP splint by one full size. Splints on some fingers may overlap more than others and when ordering multiple swan necks, adjustments will need to be made to the angle of the splints and often an exchange is part of the process.
