Pediatric trigger thumb (PTT)

Pediatric trigger thumb (PTT) is a common condition. It affects the movement of the thumb in children. The thumb gets stuck in a bent position. A contracture means that the thumb can no longer stretch or straighten. The clicking sensation is felt when the tendon pops through the ligament or “triggers” between a locked position and straight position. In result the thumb extension is impossible.

The exact cause of pediatric trigger thumb is not known. About 3 in 1000 children will develop PTT between age 1 and 3 and both thumbs can be affected in up to 30 percent of children.

Splinting the thumb is one of the basic treatments of PTT. It can be received with our kid thumb abduction splint FIX-KG-15.

Purpose of use

Product’s description

Kids Thumb Abduction Splint FIX-KG-15 offers safe thumb abduction and prevents against involuntary flexion. Keeping the thumb in the abduction and extension allows to release the ligaments and tendons. This position prevents the ligaments overusing and deformations.

Kids Thumb Abduction Splint FIX-KG-15 is made of innovative, breathable fabric AeroSpace II™.

AeroSpace II™ is an innovative new generation raw material. It is a distance elastic 3D knitted fabric consisting of two layers of facings and an interlacing that creates the appropriate thickness of the raw material and has relieving properties. The knitwear is made of the highest quality polyester yarn - guaranteeing high mechanical strength and spandex ensuring its proper flexibility. AeroSpace II™ has an external self-gripping layer what makes it easy to adjust each product to individual patient’s needs. This material is characterized by a very low weight, high flexibility and a very large openwork structure, allowing for very easy drainage of sweat from the body and bringing fresh air to the skin. Products made of this raw material are neutral to the secured joint, do not heat or cool it, but ensure its proper compression and fit and reduce muscle vibrations generated during physical exertion. Its thickness and 3D structure perfectly relieves the orthopedic splints, stays or other elements mounted on the product and guarantees velvety softness to the touch.

AeroSpace II™

Kids Thumb Abduction Splint FIX-KG-15 is equipped with aluminum splint that can be shaped according to therapeutic needs.

Aluminum stays are made of a special aluminum alloy that guarantees proper stiffness with minimal weight. They have rounded ends to prevent the damage of the product and come in various widths and thicknesses. The level of stabilization of the orthopedic device is defined by proper selection of the width and thickness of the aluminum stays. The stays can be pre-profiled or flat. They do not adapt to the shape of the patient's body, an individual adjustment of the orthosis is required by proper bending of the aluminum stays in the product. Thanks to this function, it is possible to correct the position of the patient's body or the secured joint.
