Remington Medical is the Canadian distributor for Mckie splints. The McKie Thumb Splint was designed by Ann McKie, an NDT-trained pediatric occupational therapist working with developmentally disabled children in northeastern Minnesota. The design for the splint, she says, was inspired by love for the children she served. Parents, adult clients, doctors and therapists around the world attest to the effectiveness of the splint.
While originally created with only children in mind, the various applications of this simple, dynamic design have revealed themselves over time. Adults with stroke, children with brachial plexus injury, cerebral palsy or arthrogryposis, individuals with thumb weakness, folks who experience thumb trauma, older adults with arthritis at the base of the thumb…..have all benefited from our products.
