Typing sticks with splint on dorsal wrist

Typing sticks with splint on dorsal wrist

A universal strap is attached to a narrow splint positioned on the dorsum of the wrist. The splint is attached solely by means of the universal strap, which goes around the palm. A rubber-tipped carbon fiber rod sits in the universal strap.

Users comments
At first the splint was also attached with a strap to the forearm. Now the user manages without that strap. The rubber tip on the carbon fiber rod prevents the stick from slipping on the keys.
