make relative motion extremely simple

 

What is HOOK SPLINT -
Relative Motion Orthosis?

Hook splint (RMO) is a new generation medical device created with the professional help of a hand therapist and hand surgeon who have reached this innovation through their many years of experience in the field. The relative motion splint was initially developed to facilitate postoperative rehabilitation after repairing extensor tendon injuries at the dorsum of the hand and forearm. It has subsequently been used for rehabilitation, various types of injuries, flexions, contractures, extensions, fractures and more. Тhereby, the incredible medical discovery gradually evolved into a larger population of patients with abnormal mobility of their pip joint for various diagnoses.

“NOW THERE IS A BETTER, MORE STRAIGHTFORWARD AND MORE COMFORTABLE WAY TO CREATE CUSTOM SPLINTS!

What makes it the best orthosis on the market?

Many therapists shared the opinion that the current materials and techniques out there are not as functional as they would want them to be. These orthoses are often bulky, uncomfortable and too rigid. They are hard to take off, difficult to clean and keep dry. The main problem of the therapists was that their installation requires a lot of time and adjustments. And in the end, patients are not satisfied and do not feel comfortable.
That is why these specialists have undertaken extensive research and experimentation to create an innovative orthosis that is multifunctional, easy to install, comfortable for the patient, and perfect for the therapist.

How to use?

Тhe benefits of the relative motion orthosis are numerous. It is waterproof, breathable, comfortable, and, most importantly, functional. It is a simple, practical device with the feel of an Apple Watch band. Hook splint is a smooth silicone band with a metallic core, utilizing a novel approach to custom splinting. It transforms a flexible band into a rigid custom orthosis.

Hook Splint comes ready to use right out of the package. It is moulded directly to the patient, no need for hot water baths, heat guns or velcro. The tabs on each end are placed through the perforations to secure the splint. The area of overlap is called a rigid zone, and it is there to provide extra stability.
