Realignment Splint

Realignment splint on PIP2
The DS Realignment Splint is commonly used for different forms of Arthritis where the joint begins to deviate laterally. With a constant amount of passive pressure, this splint is highly effective in stopping the progression of deviation and in occasional cases can cause correction.

This splint can be worn on both the PIP and DIP joints as well as the IP joint of the thumb but care must be taken when worn on the DIP joint as the splint can slip off.
When the Realignment Splint is worn on the PIP joint, it will limit flexion to about 30 degrees so we recommend limiting the use of this splint to 8-12 hours of use per day; evening to morning is ideal.

Additional Options:

Realignment with Vertical
Realignment with Horizontal
The spacer (the small plate between the two large rings) comes in 3 different sizes. It is most commonly set in a vertical position. This spacer can be positioned to a horizontal position to make the splint longer to create more leverage in pulling the finger into alignment. This only done for PIP joints. When used on the DIP joints we recommend the spacer in the shortened vertical position.
realignment on DIP
When worn on the DIP joint, the splint will sit right on the sensitive area by the nail bed. We suggest adding a pressure plate to this area to prevent the splint from “digging in” to that sensitive area.
