How to Use MySplint Shapeable Splint
MySplint proper use and instructions:
Using your MySplint Custom Fit splint is easy. To prepare it for use, all you’ll need is a microwave, the splint itself, and the provided microwave-safe tray.
- First, remove your MySplint from the box. Inside, you’ll find one MySplint Custom Fit Splint and a white, microwave-safe tray. Set the tray aside for now and remove your MySplint from the protective poly bag.
- Now, you’ll need to warm your MySplint in the microwave. To heat your MySplint, place the splint on the provided tray in the center of your microwave and warm it for 15 seconds. Check the support for pliability and temperature before placing it on your hand - your MySplint should be warm, not hot. If needed, you can place your MySplint back on the microwave-safe tray and heat your support for an additional 10 seconds to reach the desired temperature. If the support is too hot to the touch, make sure to allow it to cool to a comfortable temperature.
- Next, we’ll let MySplint’s custom-fit thermoplastics mold to your wrist for an optimal custom fit. To mold your MySplint, slide it loosely over your wrist, placing your thumb in the the thumb hole. Once in place, fasten all 3 closures comfortably. If at any point the splint feels too hot on your skin, remove and allow further cooling. Next, keep your wrist steady in the desired position until the splint has hardened. The hardening process should take about 10 minutes. To expedite the molding process, hover the splinted wrist in your freezer for no more than thirty seconds. MySplint supports can be remolded up to 5 times as needed.
