SIRIS™ Boutonniere Splint and SIRIS™ Realignment Splint
SIRIS™ boutonniere splint and SIRIS™ realignment splint design. Use the SIRIS™ Boutonniere Splint for severe hyperextension (greater than 20 degrees) or when subluxation of the joint is occurring. This splint is worn with the oval spacer under the joint to block hyperextension while allowing full flexion. It positions the two rings farther from the joint for better leverage at a more comfortable angle. Use the SIRIS™ Realignment Splint for flexion of enlarged or fusiform shaped PIP joints. The orientation of the spacer between the two rings holds them farther apart for better leverage at a more comfortable angle.
