Hely & Weber manufactures high quality orthopedic braces and supports.  One of their most successful products has been the Titan thumb brace.  The next generation of Titan thumb splint is here.  There are significant product improvements to what was already a great thumb spica.

The Titan thumb brace is unique in that it’s universal in size.  Just order rights and lefts.  The universal size is going to fit most people.  However there is a pediatric size for the kiddos, an extra large size for those people with gigantic hands, and an extra small size for the smaller folks.

The Titan thumb brace can be purchased on the Heritage Medical Equipment website  for $30.25.  Click here to learn more about the Titan Thumb Brace.  If you are a patient buying this wrist brace for yourself a universal sized product makes sense because you can adjust the sizing.  You don’t have to worry about “am I medium or a large”.

Cell Phone Elbow

The purpose of a new study conducted at the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis Missouri was to prospectively analyze symptom improvement in patients with mild to moderate cubital tunnel syndrome (cell phone elbow) treated with rigid night splinting and activity modifications.

Nineteen patients (25 extremities) were enrolled following a diagnosis of idiopathic cubital tunnel syndrome.  Patients were treated with activity modifications as well as a 3-month course of rigid night splinting (cubital tunnel brace) maintaining 45 degrees of elbow flexion. There was a high rate of compliance with the splinting protocol.

The study concludes that rigid night splinting when combined with activity modification appears to be successful, well-tolerated, and a durable treatment for cellbow (cubital tunnel syndrome).  The study recommends that patients with mild to moderate cell phone elbow consider initial treatment with activity modification and rigid night splinting for 3 months based on a high likelihood of avoiding surgical intervention.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is being diagnosed more than in the past because of the extensive cell phone usage in our daily lives. Cell Phone Elbow (which is Cubital Tunnel Syndrome) is caused by the constant greater than 90 degree bend at the elbow, while using the cell phone.

A rigid night splint (cubital tunnel elbow brace) is available on the Heritage Medical Equipment website for $36.76.  To learn more about this elbow brace for cell phone elbow, just click the link.
