I couldn't find a picture of one for you on the internet but, imagine
neoprene (which is the stuff dive suits are made out of) Now imagine a
glove with it's fingers cut out except the thumb (I'm assuming they want a
thumb) The Benik splints are made out of neoprine. Quite nice looking in
cool colors. There will be a hard part going from the hand down that will
keep Zachs hand slightly hyperextended or which ever position the therapist
wants it to be in. Do you have a way of recieving pictures through email?

Hello everyone, first a quick update on Zachary, He is up and running =
almost like normal except he is moving much slower and is falling more. =

Now a question, they are ordering some braces for Zachary's wrist they =
