The DS Combination Splint is used on the two joints of a finger, both the PIP and the DIP. In some cases there is an advantage to having one splint for both joints but it is stressed that when we splint both joints with one splint, we limit the flexion of the finger; in other words the finger will remain straight. Often having two separate splints is recommended so that the finger maintains current mobility.
The degree of difficulty in sizing for these splints only allows us to give two free re-sizings. If more than two re-sizings are required shipping charges will be applied.
There are two types of Combination splints:
Combination Anti-Swan Neck Splint/Boutonniere Splint This splint is used to limit hyper extension of the PIP at the same time limiting flexion of the DIP. This splint is mostly effective when both the PIP and DIP can be manually brought to a neutral position.
Combination Anti-Boutonniere Splint/Swan Neck Splint This splint is used to limit flexion or bending of the PIP at the same time limiting extension of the DIP. This splint is mostly effective when both the PIP and DIP can be manually brought to a neutral position.
