hi All

when i visited my OT - she suggested i should have a hand splint to stop my fingers curling over. i was refered to my local hospital, who arranged for one to be ordered, it arrived around 3 months later and he so called fitted it to me.

i wore it for one night, and the next day my whole hand/wrist and forearm was seized. and in a lot of pain.

i was convinced it was setup wrong, so i bent it myself looking at various images and to optimise my own comfort. But i have worn it and to be honest although it seems to straighten out my fingers temporarily, it does seem to tighten up my hand, im worried i am doing more damage than good by wearing this thing.

it looks like this one

kind regards

john
