The TKO provides positioning for fractures or injuries to metacarpals, phalanges, MCP and PIP joints. The straps are adjustable for fit and comfort – important for swollen and painful fingers! The stays on this splint are padded and malleable for a custom fit.
The TKO by Hely & Weber is versatile. It can be used as a boxer’s fracture splint, radial gutter splint, 3rd and 4th buddy splint, or a Dupuytren’s splint. The next four blog posts will cover each of these treatment options. This finger brace was designed by David Garelick, MD and Edward Cotton, OTC.
