I like to call it my Brass Knuckles
Polycentric hinged ulnar deviation splint is its professional name. I have come to know this splint as a permanent extension of my body. It cradles my right hand and reduces the ulnar drift that is caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Essentially my right pinky and ring finger are falling to the ground when I try to make a fist. This splint helps my hands act normal. It currently looks pretty medical, but hey – it could be worse. Take a look at my previous posts and you will see I could cause some serious injury with my dynamic splint. I have some friends that are going to help me spruce these babies up, so I can have a little bit of fashion with my ‘brass knuckles.’ Each day I just take it in… I’m grateful that I still have use of my right hand.
Make it Count by making splints into pieces of you.
