Ulnar Carpal Support Splint, L, Left | Performance Health
The Rolyan Ulnar Carpal Support Wrist Splint has been designed by leading Hand Therapist Dr Rosemary Prosser specifically for ulnar carpal wrist treatment.
Q&A with Dr Rosemary Prosser:
How does UCS work?
The UCS splint is designed to support the distal radioulnar joint and ulnar aspect of the wrist. It should stabilise the ulna head and control dorsal subluxation of the ulna head relative to the distal radius. The ulnar strap needs to attach to the circumferential strap dorsoradially.
What’s different with the UCS?
The ulnar strap provides support and proprioception to improve awareness and helps control ulnar deviation and wrist stability.
What improvements have been made?
The breathable material has been retained, the shape & straps have been reconfigured, and the edge overlocking has been added to improve splint durability and function.
What conditions should the UCS splint be used for?
The splint should be considered for: ulnar carpal injuries including TFCC, ulnar carpal ligament strains; Lunotriquetral ligament injuries; Distal Radioulnar Joint ligament injuries; and midcarpal instability.
