dvN_u_MLRD4gkho5DvbQpydWxMpvibJJ5eHU0Bov_DA

A knee brace for osteoarthritis will reduce knee pain, and provide some protection and stability.  A knee brace specifically designed to treat knee OA is a safe and simple treatment option for your knee pain.  Studies conducted at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City show that people with knee OA who wear a knee brace specifically designed for OA will reduce the amount of medications they take, and postpone surgery.

If the medications you take are causing adverse side-effects like stomach or digestive problems, or if you’re looking to delay that total knee replacement, ask your doctor about treating your knee pain with a knee brace.  Safe.  effective.  Simple.

TKO – Dupuytren’s Splint

April 25, 2016 @ 12:21 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

TKO Dupuytrens Splint

What is a Dupuytren’s Splint?

Let’s start with Dupuytren’s disease.  Dupuytren’s Disease is a thickening and shrinking of the layer of flesh just under the skin of the palm.  It can cause lumps in the skin, and can draw the fingers into a bent position.

There’s a layer of tissue, called fascia, under the skin of the palm.  This tissue helps keep the the skin from sliding around when you grip things.  This tissue shrinks in some people, and pulls on the skin and fingers.

A finger splint like the one pictured above can stretch the fingers to keep them more straight.  This can help avoid or postpone surgery in some cases.  If surgery is required a finger splint can help prepare the area for surgery, making the surgery less complicated and more safe.  And after surgery a finger splint can be worn at night to help prevent recurrence of the condition.

The TKO (The Knuckle Orthosis) by Hely & Weber can be used as an effective Dupuytren’s Splint.  It is lightweight, durable, and comfortable.  This finger brace can also be easily washed and dried – important for people who must wear an orthopedic brace every day.

TKO – 3rd and 4th Buddy Splint

April 18, 2016 @ 12:10 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

TKO 3rd 4th Buddy Splint

What is a 3rd and 4th Buddy Splint?  Buddy taping is a well known and useful method for treating sprains, dislocations, and other finger injuries.  The idea is to bandage or tape an injured finger to the healthy digit beside it.  The bandage or tape is usually stiff and does not allow the injured finger to move.  The problem with traditional buddy splinting is that the tape can break down the skin, there is a possibility of circulation loss, hygiene can be a problem, and ulcers are a concern for diabetics.

The TKO (The Knuckle Orthosis) is a great alternative to buddy splinting.  Skin breakdown, circulation problems, and ulcers can all be avoided because this finger splint is constructed of plush orthopedic felt on one side and padded stays on the other to provide protection and stability.  This splint can be removed so it can be washed and dried.  This helps with the hygiene.  Also, the injured area can be inspected.  This is especially important for diabetics.

TKO Radial Gutter

What is a radial gutter splint?  A radial gutter splint can be used to treat soft tissue injuries and fractures to the second and third fingers.  A radial gutter splint can also be used as a positioning splint for certain types of rheumatoid arthritis.

TKO – Boxer’s Fracture Splint

The TKO (The Knuckle Orthosis) is a versatile finger splint.  The TKO by Hely & Weber provides positioning for fractures or injuries to the fingers.  This post will talk about how the TKO can be used as a Boxer Fracture Splint.

Boxer’s fractures usually result from someone punching something harder than their hand.  The end result is that the pinky gets broken.  People who suffer from Boxer’s Fractures usually don’t do very well in hard plaster casts.  And even if they did, doctors debate if total immobilization is the best way to treat a broken pinky.  Some motion at the fracture site is generally recommended, regardless of where the fracture is.

So a Boxer’s Fracture Splint is a great treatment option.  The person wearing the splint has some control over their treatment.  They can adjust the brace, or remove it at their own discretion.  A splint is a comfortable, affordable, and effective treatment option for a boxers fracture.
