Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A double-walled rubber cylinder, made of cheap, readily available materials, is described. This device enables intermittent positive pressure to be applied to individual fingers during the course of management of post-surgical or post-traumatic finger oedema. It has a number of advantages over the standard total hand splint currently used.
