An elbow extension splint built to treat joint stiffness and restore lost range of motion due to injury, trauma, surgery or disease, is available through Dynasplint Systems Inc, Severna Park, Md. The company’s website notes that the Elbow Extension Dynasplint System is worn at rest.
The product is typically worn for 6 to 8 hours a day (2 to 4 hours to start). The adjustable Dynamic Elbow Extension Splint applies a low-load, prolonged-duration stretch (LLPS) across the joint using a tensioning mechanism. This is intended to provide users a continued, yet gentle stretch to the elbow joint, which works to permanently lengthen connective tissue.
The Elbow Extension Dynasplint is designed to address diagnoses that include elbow fractures or dislocations, joint arthroplasties, hymeral fractures, radial or ulnar fractures, and other orthopedic and neurological elbow conditions.
