    Resting Hand Orthosis, Without Finger Separators

    Ideal “static / dynamic” neuro-inhibiting therapy in a resting hand design with a heat moldable flexible insert that “flexes” at the wrist ONLY to accommodate spastic episodes of tone and can be heat molded to “flex” into the wrist to provide a therapeutic neuro-inhibiting stretch. The rigid finger platform is ideal when the fingers can be easily positioned with all of the fingers in full extension. A movable thumb stall with an elastic pull strap can be set to reverse mild to moderate thumb adduction. The device provides “static / dynamic” therapy to reverse mild to moderate (< 90°) adaptive tissue shortening contractures of the wrist and provides abnormal reflex arc neuro therapy for patients with spasticity.

    The DynaPro Resting Hand / Thumbease is a resting hand design with a thermoplastic insert that is heat molded approximately 15 to 30 degrees “ahead” of comfortable end range stretch at the wrist (i.e., with wrist contracture of 45 degrees, the insert is heat molded to – 30 to -15° degrees). The finger pan should be heat molded to maintain the fingers in optimal extension. When applied, the flexible insert will “flex” into the wrist contracture applying a therapeutic, inhibiting stretch on the shortened tissue at the wrist. The gentle tension applied by the correctly heat molded insert will provide abnormal reflex arc therapy to reduce abnormal tone over time as well as lengthening shortened tissue. The device should be modified by heat molding the insert every 6 to 8 weeks to continue contracture reversal (i.e., when the wrist improves from – 45 to -30, the insert must be heat molded to – 15 to neutral to continue the “flex” therapy). By increasing wearing time to three to six hours per use, the Total End Range Time (TERT) of device wear provides long effects stretch and permanent increases in joint range of motion over time. Orthotic treatment should be continued until function is restored to the affected hand.
