FixxGlove™ Orthoses, Dorsal and Volar for three and five fingers.
Comfortable night orthoses designed for post-surgical management of Dupuytren’s contracture. Available in a Dorsal and Volar/Palmar model (see bottom of this page).
FixxGlove orthosis is a static extension night orthosis/splint that is easy to put on and comfortable to wear. It has a built-in malleable/adjustable aluminum stay, as well as finger straps for easy removal. The comfortable design may increase patient compliance in long term treatment scenarios following Dupuytren's release surgery.
The two different models of the FixxGlove Orthosis provide users the option to choose between a dorsal or volar/palmar support. Thus allowing for a choice of Dupuytren Splint based on personal preference and comfort.
Medical literature proposes/suggests that a static extension orthosis/splint be worn at night for up to 6 months and sometimes longer, following surgical procedures such as Percutaneous Needle Fasciotomies (Percutaneous Needle Aponeurotomy) and Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum injections as well as Fascioectomies.
The FixxGlove orthosis is washable in temperatures below 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove stay before washing.
Please note that the FixxGlove orthosis should not be worn without it being recommended by a medical professional. Please make sure that a professional made the required measurements to insure a proper fit. Only wear the FixxGloves orthosis after wounds are healed.

Recently published case studies suggests that splinting of the Dupuytren finger, wether following Dupuytren's release surgery or still untreated, provide new therapeutic options.
