    Thank you SCI nurse! When OT ran out they ordered him a dynasplint to wear on his right hand. It seems like they were satisfied withhis hand because he can use thumb and pointer which means he has 60% return. Luckily, insurance paid for dynasplint but I was wondering how beneficial is this brace?

    My husband hated that splint & barely used it -- his left hand works but not his right, so things like buttons are still a pain (he's almost 11 years post). He also learned to walk with a cane, tho' it took him a couple of years to do it.

    He solved the buttons problem by leaving his shirts buttoned all the time -- puts them and takes them off over his head.
