The Mx splint can be quickly applied during a patient consultation. The Mx splint has been designed for added patient comfort with a smooth, padded-lining that can be easily cleaned. Once fitted, the Mx splint can be removed and re-applied by the patient without the need for messy tape to stabilize the splint. Many splint designs in current use (STAX style & bespoke-splints) usually cover the patient's finger-pad and this prevents touch-screen interaction. The Mx splint allows the patient continued access to their smart-phone and other touch-screen devices because it does NOT cover the finger pad.
