New Cubital Tunnel Splint Specially Designed for Comfort and Less Cumbersome Fit
Date:12/14/2009

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- When staff from a leading orthopaedic group grew tired of struggling to apply the difficult to adjust and uncomfortable cubital tunnel splints available on the market, they enlisted Professional Products, Inc. (PPI) to develop a superior alternative. PPI, a leader and innovator in orthopaedic solutions for nearly five decades, responded with the revolutionary Exotec Cubital Tunnel Splint(TM) (cubitaltunnelsplint.com), which it announced today. Simple to fit and easy adjusted for pre- or post-operative protocols, this highly comfortable splint offers a removable and cost-effective option to casting.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve becomes trapped or irritated as it passes through the cubital tunnel. It is second only to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as a compression neuropathy. Patients have complained for years about uncomfortable splints, while health practitioners bemoaned their difficulty of application and lack of adjustability. Made of exceptionally comfortable orthopaedic neoprene with a Kydex® ventral insert (which can be heated), the Exotec Cubital Tunnel Splint(TM) keeps the elbow in the optimal position to minimize movement and reduce irritation, especially at night. The splint's user-friendly design allows for skin care and edema relief without interfering with the patient's surgical scar.

"A major orthopaedic group specifically asked us to design a less cumbersome and more comfortable splint for treating Cubital Tunnel Syndrome," said Dean Stanton, General Manager of PPI. "They are ecstatic about the Exotec Cubital Tunnel Splint(TM), and we are proud of developing a solution that health practitioners and patients alike deem superior."

Part of PPI's popular ezyWRAP® line (www.ezywrap.com), the Exotec Cubital Tunnel Splint(TM) comes in a universal size that fits both left and right elbows. For details, or to order, please visit www.cubitaltunnelsplint.com.
