Mckie Splint Sizing Kits

$83.00$135.00

Product Details

Our sizing kits are meant for purchase by health professionals who would prefer not to have to measure their clients each time they recommend a McKie Thumb splint. The sizing kits are comprised of actual McKie Thumb splints, a color swatch sampler and a supinator strap. Instructions for application are included with the kits.

We have tried to organize the kits to include the distinct age groups health professionals often treat. The McKie thumb splints are specific to the right or left hand. However, they can be applied to the opposite hand for the purpose of sizing. Sometimes clinics prefer to have the full array of both right and left hand splints. We have tried to accommodate your requests and are always open to your suggestions.

Sizing

How to Size Thumb Splint

Use A and B measurements to determine which size splint you should order.

1. Measurement A: Measure to the 1/10th of a centimeter the circumference of the far or distal thumb joint.

2. Measurement B: easure to the 1/10th of a centimeter the distance on the palm from the distal thumb joint to the center of the wrist crease.

3. Measurement F (only used for custom splints): measure from the distal thumb crease to the bottom of the web space.

4. Refer to Chart: On the appropriate chart (see links below), find the the square where Measurement A and Measurement B meet. The square should fall within a bold area corresponding to the correct size. If Neonatal use only Measurement A an Neonatal Sizing and refer to the neonatal chart for neonatal sizing.

Example:

If Measurement A = 5.2 centimeters and Measurement B = 6.0 centimeters, then splint size = P5

View Pediatric Sizing Chart → Use only Measurement A. Refer to the neonatal chart for neonatal sizing.

5. Record Sizes : Note splint size and left or right hand, as this is required when ordering. If ordering offline, the catalog number for the above example would be P5-L (left hand) or P5-R (right hand).

To assure the best fit, use of a sizing kit is recommended. If a sizing kit is unavailable, follow the directions above. Neonatal sizes are suitable for very small or prematurely born infants. Pediatric sizes are suitable for children from about 3 months to 6-10 years. Older children and adults need adult sizes. When figuring sizes, it is important to use a centimeter tape measure.

  • X-Small (7/8 inch x 15 inches) straps are typically needed by infants.
