Paediatric Ulnar Deviation Brace

The Paediatric Ulnar Deviation Brace has been designed to restrict this deformity and prevent further deterioration. Featuring colourful neoprene material and adjustable straps, the brace offers adjustable aluminium bar to help limit and control ulnar drift.

What is Ulnar Deviation in Children?

Children with ulnar longitudinal deficiency are born with their wrist in a fixed, bent position toward the little finger side of the hand. The fingers and thumb may also be affected. Other muscles and nerves in the hand may be unbalanced or missing. This condition is sometimes called ulnar dysplasia or ulnar club hand.

Who Can Benefit From the Ulnar Deviation Brace?

Thankfully if caught early and treated then the majority of cases can be improved markedly. Physical therapy, finger exercises, and wearing a splint or brace to realign fingers may help to relieve ulnar deviation. Surgery may sometimes be needed to fix the deformity, relieve pain, and improve functioning. Ulnar supports are not a substitute for other forms of treatment but they can be a helpful addition to other treatments.

  • Immobilisation to relieve pain
  • Inflamed/swollen tendons
  • Juvenile Chronic Arthritis

How Effective Are Supports at Treating Ulnar Deviation?

Orthotic braces designed to stabilise and protect joints has been shown to improve hand strength and function. Although they have not been shown to prevent deformity, they can play a valuable role in treatment by helping to maintain range of motion, reduce stiffness and pain, and relieve deforming stress on the digits.
