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.
