How does the process work?
In order to be able to assess what will be required, we'll first need a prescription form completing by a healthcare professional (Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, GP etc). Once we receive the form we will then contact you to arrange an appointment to attend the workshop for measuring and fitting of the splint(s).
Can the measuring be done remotely?
Unfortunately not, in order to make sure that the splint(s) fit correctly and will not cause any damage, you will need to be present within the workshop in York for measuring and fitting. For the same reasons we unfortunately cannot accept requests from outside the UK.
Who pays for the splint(s)?
The majority of splints are privately funded by the client. VERY occasionally other bodies such as the NHS or the client's employer may fund the splint(s). Please be aware that this is extremely rare. You, as the client, will almost certainly have to pay for the splint(s).
How much will it cost?
It is difficult to determine the cost of a splint until the individual design is
formulated. The cost of our bespoke splints will of course reflect the type classification, stylishness of design (bejewelled), and the intricacy of structure of the splint in question.
The Beautiful Splint Company is registered with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency. All splints produced comply with the EU Council Directive 93/42/EEC of 14 June 1993 concerning medical devices.
