The RCAI Dorsal Blocking Splint, available through Restorative Care of America Inc, St. Petersburg, Fla, is engineered to protect the flexor tendons of the hand and fingers from stress following injury. The product is also intended to prevent scar tissue development in the later stages of the healing process, according to the company website.
The DBS is comprised of heat-moldable thermoplastic to allow for patient customization.
The site notes that the DBS rests dorsally on the hand and positions the wrist at 30 degrees of flexion, the MCP joints at 70 degrees of flexion, and the IP joints of the fingers at full extension. The product also features a breathable foam liner, designed to wick moisture away from the skin. Straps at the distal end of the fingers are intended to offer comfortable, IP extension positioning at night.
