WE swan neck splint ring code (5013)
The WE swan neck splint ring prevents hyperextension of the PIP and/or DIP finger joints while allowing full flexion.
More than one WE swan neck splint ring can be worn on one hand without any problems. The splints come in the dorsal width of 3.5 mm, 5 mm and 8 mm.
WE double swan neck with hinge (code 5033)
The splints can also be combined on the PIP and DIP at the same time, joined together with a small hinge or on several fingers simultaneously.
WE lateral support splint ring (code 5015 / 5016)
Adding one or two supports to the sides of the WE swan neck splint ring prevents hyperextension and gives lateral or bilateral support to the finger joints with full flexion allowance. The support is always placed opposite the direction of the deviation and when instability occurs both ways, wings can be added on both sides.
Remark: For the ulnar or radial deviation of the DIP joints, the boutonnière splint ring (code 5014) is worn sideways to correct and prevent further deviation.
WE dynamic flexion splint (code 5042)
The WE dynamic flexion splint can be used when flexor tendons fail to perform or when the dorsal flexion of the PIP is such that a normal swan neck splint does not fit.
The springs allow easy fitting and give a small but constant pressure to loosen tendon tightness.
WE boutonnière splint ring (code 5014)
The WE boutonnière splint ring is the answer in mild cases of boutonnière and mallet finger deformations. Flexion of the PIP or DIP joints is restricted and the finger is kept in extension by bringing the joint and finger into a straight position.
This splint is also often used on the DIP joint to redress and prevent ulnar or radial deviation.
WE dynamic extension splint (code 5034)
WE dynamic extension splint rings can be applied when the extensor tendons fail to perform. Coil springs placed laterally to the PIP joint on both sides help increase PIP extension and reduce flexor tendon tightness.
In case of post-operative flexion contractors, wearing of these rings is not the right treatment. When chronic conditions occur and long-term splinting can be of help then the WE dynamic extension splint rings offer a solution. The splints are available in different strengths.
WE arthrodesis splints (code 5021)
This splint extends both the PIP and the DIP finger joints.
WE anti-trigger splint (code 5040)
The WE anti-trigger ring restricts movement of the flexor tendon at the MCP joint. Often indicated due to flexor tendon tenosynovitis. Without limiting the range of movement of the rest of the hand and fingers, locking or clicking of the flexor tendon at the A1/A2 pulley is avoided.
WE eternity splint ring (code 5018)
The WE eternity splint ring functions as both a buddy ring and a swan neck ring at the same time. The distal ring loops around the middle phalanx thus creating more leverage to redress the ulnar finger involved.
WE pulleyring 5020
WE spiral splint (code 5022)
The WE spiral splint can be applied as a Swan neck ring or an Extension splint ring depending on the way the spiral is worn. This type of splint can be a solution for instable IP joints as well as other joints in the case of nodules.
WE bridge ring (code 5012) and buddy ring (code 5001-5010)
The splints connect one instable finger to a stable finger using its stability to join up and thereby improve the hand function. These rings can vary in width and follow the web space if needed. This is often used against ulnar deviation of MCPV.
WE bridge splint ring is used when more than one of the MCPs is unstable or more leverage is desired. It combines the strength and stability of 3 or 4 MCP joints. Also, when the PIP joints are thickened, the open construction offers a solution where closed rings fail.
WE anti-dropping finger splint (code 5049)
The anti-dropping finger splint easily supports a dropping finger into extension by using the stability of the lateral MCP joints related to the one causing the problem.
