Hitting the right note ♫
This unique splint hit all the right notes for a young musician with a complex requirement. Lucy found it difficult and painful to position her little finger in the right place to press down on the keys of her flute. With a conventional oval eight splint it would have been almost impossible to provide the support/movement needed for these joints, however, we were able to create something unique to help this young talented flautist hit the right note again.
Lucy and her Mum came to the workshop and working with her and the requirements given in her prescription, we fashioned a beautiful and elegant splint. Due to the unique styling and support given by the splint, she was now able to apply pressure to the keys that she couldn't play before.
Lucy was so delighted with the support and relief from pain that this splint gave, that she wanted to take the unfinished version home. However, that wasn't possible as it needed to be finished, polished and delivered to her Healthcare Professional for final sign off. So we were very pleased to hear that the splint was assessed and issued in time for Lucy to take her music exams for University entry.
