A nationally known rehab clinical care consultant had this to say about AllSplint™....
Many stroke survivors have “increased flexor tone of the wrist, hand and fingers which will lead to contractures and the inability to extend the joints if not properly aligned.
Given the inability to independently extend these joints, they are at risk to develop severe joint contractures, poor hand hygiene, pain and dysfunction if not controlled through splinting. Prolonged stretch assists muscle relaxation and the ability to extend contracted joints. AllSplint provides the user the ability to gently extend wrist, hand and finger joints through progressive stretching, controlled independently by the patient making it a more functional alternative to standard static splinting.
Patients provided other types of braces often return multiple times to fabricate splints in various positions to achieve the results AllSplint can achieve with just one purchase. This adaptability and the fact that the patient/caregiver is able to readjust a progressive stretch make AllSplint a more cost effective alternative for long term use.
Patients that lack active movement early on but who maintain joint and muscle flexibility have improved chances of independent movement as tone reduces and recovery of movement is permitted.”
