combined dorsoplantar splint

combined dorsoplantar splint

corrective padding, usually made of semicompressed felt, used to reduce flexible lesser-toe deformities, e.g. dorsal digital pad (to control excess dorsiflexion of the proximal phalanges in clawed/retracted toes) with a plantar digital pad (to prevent excess plantarflexion of intermediate and distal phalanges) that balances long extensor and flexor muscle action
