Several weeks ago, Helen came to us with Hereditary Neuropathy with the goal of keeping her index finger in extension to be able to grip her cane better.
We came up with a Boutonniere Splint to create extension and it worked very well, except for the fact that because Helen has no feeling in her fingers, pressure sores started to develop and we had to “rethink” the way we need to keep her finger in extension.
When Helen revisited us, we completely rebuilt her splint with much wider surface areas and now the splint is working the way it should.
It is such a pleasure to work with Helen. To be able to come up with an effective device for her was such a benefit to both Helen and myself. Helen is such an inspiration by again proving that if it not impossible… than it can be done!
