A Splint to help with ukulele

Post by trish.conway247 » Mon Sep 07, 2015 12:30 pm

I broke my neck (avulsing C5 and damaging C6 and C7) in 1965 and had the Steindler flexorplasty last year. I started playing ukulele a few months ago (supporting my left forearm on my raised thigh) as a therapy to help me put in the hours and hours of flexion and extension exercise without going crazy. Turns out I love playing ukulele, but the radial deviation of my fingers is aggravating my problems with finger adduction. I have found splints to correct ULNAR deviation http://www.3pointproducts.com/polycentric-hinged and http://www.pattersonmedical.com/app.asp ... y=IF_89546 but none for RADIAL deviation Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you.

Trish
