11 Mar Custom made leather splints
We are excited to announce that our leather splint lab is up and running. We custom make leather splints to fit you individually. These splints provide maximum support for long term use of chronic injuries including osteoarthritis and wrist pain.
People restricted in their activities due to ongoing wrist or thumb pain or wrist arthritis often have a need for a brace for the medium to long term to support the wrist.
Long lasting leather braces and splints custom made to fit your wrist perfectly are that is hard wearing, breathable, and allows a comfortable degree of movement but provides exceptional support for the wrist.
The benefit of leather is that overtime it adjusts to your body and conforms to you. It’s environmentally friendly too.
Custom made leather braces may be suitable for treating:
- Osteoarthritis of the wrist and thumb
- Rheumatoid arthritis of the wrist
- Wrist instability
- SLAC wrist
- Partial fusions
- Following fractures
