Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) flexion contracture is a common complication following hand injuries and conditions. This study investigated the treatment outcome of 20 subjects with PIP flexion contracture who followed a dynamic splinting program using either a Capener or low-profile outrigger. The splint applied a 250-g force to the distal end of the middle phalanx. Each patient was instructed to wear the splint for 8 to 12 hours per 24 hours for 8 weeks followed by a 2- to 3-week weaning… CONTINUE READING
