Defuniak Springs, FL, September 02, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Professional Products, Inc. (PPI), a leader and innovator in orthopaedic solutions for nearly five decades, today announced a new wrist support for contractures of the hand and wrist for victims of strokes, arthritis, trauma, carpal tunnel syndrome and sprains. The Platform™ Wrist Splint’s (www.PlatformWristSplint.com) clamshell design enables health care professionals to make adjustments to compensate for edema while providing excellent positioning of the wrist, hand and fingers.
Part of PPI’s popular ezyWRAP® line (www.ezywrap.com), the Platform Wrist Splint properly supports the wrist while allowing the fingers to rest comfortably on its extended padded platform. Made of breathable, moisture wicking, and soft orthopaedic felt with durable perforated vinyl, the splint is engineered for optimal comfort, fit and function. Its extended resting hand ensures a patient’s hand remains in a functional position with metacarpal phalanges in 15 to 20 degrees of flexion. Maximum support is provided by two adjustable Dorsal and Palmar Stays, which are precisely shaped to allow functional positioning of the wrist, hand and fingers. The splint’s Velcro® Hoop Closure ensures it will not become snagged on clothing.
“Splints to treat contractures of the hand and wrist are often uncomfortable because they are difficult to adjust and cannot adapt to a patient’s level of swelling,” said Dean Stanton, General Manager of PPI. “Our new Platform Wrist Splint is superior because it is highly flexible, comfortable and affordable.”
PPI’s Platform Wrist Splint easily accommodates the FirstICE® continuous cold therapy system. PPI is the exclusive manufacturer and distributor to the medical community of this patented product. An average ice pack from the FirstICE® cold therapy system provides up to four hours of cold therapy, far more than the 20 minute average offered by competitors.
Affordably priced for clinicians at $16.95, the Platform Wrist Splint fits both left and right hands and comes in universal sizes to accommodate all patients. For full details, including images and instructions on application, or to place an order, please visit www.PlatformWristSplint.com.
