Newsletter Sneak Peek

Summer 2023 In Hand Newsletter

Serpentine Splint
The serpentine splint is a novel orthosis that may be helpful in reducing an increased ulnocarpal sag, commonly found in cases of midcarpal instability or TFCC injuries with ulnocarpal (UT-UL-UC) ligament injuries & a positive relocation test (Prosser 1995).

It can help reduce intra-carpal supination and improve ulnocarpal stability, similarly to a prefabricated ComfortCool Ulnar Booster splint or a classic pisiform boost orthosis.
