Stack splint or Stax splint? - unsure

Posted: Mar 23, 2010

Patient is in a Stack/Stax splint for a distal phalanx fracture. I find both splints in my ortho book, and it seems as though both could be used for fingers..? Anyone know a difference or the more commonly used one?

Stack is more common sm - flybye
