Knee and Ankle Conditions
The Second Skin team design and prescribe knee and ankle support splints for the management of knee pain and oedema. Our knee and ankle splints provide a dynamic alternative to more rigid splinting when clinically required.
Second Skin has successfully prescribed dynamic knee and ankle splints to assist with the management of chronic pain and oedema, and to assist with improved standing and walking tolerance for clients following traumatic lower limb injuries, osteoarthritis and for post surgical care.
Splints are prescribed following consultation with referring medical specialists, therapy teams and return to work specialists.
Second Skin Dynamic Hand Splints can be prescribed for adults with arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Our splints are designed to provide support, whilst still allowing functional hand use. Our hand splints are designed to assist with pain and oedema management, joint protection where appropriate and improved working and resting posture. Individual design and prescription is the key to our success. All splints are prescribed to allow maximum independence in splint application and may include soft leather through the palm and thumb areas to assist with grasp.
Please contact us if we can assist in prescribing a Hand Splint for Arthritic Hand Conditions or a Lower Limb or Foot Splint for Knee and Ankle Conditions.
Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss our splints.
