For a history on my hand issues, see this post: http://rapaleo.momswithra.org/wp/?p=147
So, these suckers are amazing. I have one for each hand. They were custom made by an occupational therapist about 5 years ago, and the white plastic was heated and molded to fit my hands. There’s cushioning that’s customized to fit between my fingers, keeping them in appropriate alignment. My wrists can by cinched down tight to the hard plastic, so they don’t bend at all. My only complaint is I think my thumb is opened too far, and after a while it gets uncomfortable. That can be adjusted (remelted and moved) by an OT if I go back. So far, I’ve only had to use these a few times, but I was so thankful that I had them when I did.
Anybody else have these or need them sometimes?
