With a Mallet finger, the stretch tendon to the last finger bone is (ripped off) or broken off. This often happens due to the hard tip of the finger. The fracture can be in the bone or in the tendon and the last finger can no longer be actively stretched. The Mallet Finger splint ensures that the last leg is in the extended end position. This causes the bone or tendon to reassemble.
The right size of the finger splint is very important. The finger splint must fit properly to decrease the freedom of movement of the joint. The finger splint must not be too tight.
Taking the measure is a precise job , but you can easily do it yourself with the help of an inch:
You measure this around the last finger joint. Lay the measuring tape tightly over the finger. You can easily read the correct size in the table below. If you have doubts about whether you have broad fingertips / joints, choose one size larger, because the finger splint is small. A finger indication is also indicated in the table.
This is only indicative because there is a large anatomical spread in hand / finger forms!

|4.1 - 4.4 cm||1||4.7 cm||little finger & ring finger||Child / Woman|
