Dorsal Extension Splint For Flexion greater than 25°
Use the SilverRing™ Dorsal Extension Splint (DOE) for Flexion greater than 25° (but less than 50°), with the bar worn along the top of the joint. The Dorsal Extension Splint is a Special Order Splint so please call for fitting instructions. We are happy to make modifications to assist with the custom fit but Special Order splints may not be returned for refund, credit or exchange.
To treat a contracture of greater than 50° we generally recommend trying serial casting, dynamic splints, or gutter splints to reduce the contracture prior to ordering SilverRing™ Splints. SilverRing™ Splints can then be used to maintain the reduced contracture.
If contracture is greater than 50° a hinged ring can be used for the proximal ring of the DOE splint. A hinged ring is needed to allow the splint to be worn. Please call for more information.
