Ring orthosis design and production by rapid prototyping approach.

J Hand Ther 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Health Sciences, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey.

Study Design: In this study, ring orthosis design and manufacturing was performed by using rapid prototyping technology.

Introduction: Swan neck and boutonniere deformities may occur because of various reasons such as tendon injuries, sharp object injuries, or rheumatic diseases. Although the ring orthoses are the most commonly used conservative treatment method for swan neck and buttonhole deformities, they cannot be widely used because they are both difficult to produce and esthetically unsatisfied with the patients.
