Finger splint made for the treatment of a Mallet finger / Hammer finger, where the extension tendon of the finger is torn. The finger splint immobilizes the DIP joint (last phalanx) so that the tendon recovers.
With a mallet finger, the extensor tendon is torn or broken (broken) to the last phalanx. This often happens due to the hard impact of the fingertip. The fracture can be in the bone or tendon and the last phalanx can no longer be stretched actively. The Mallet Finger splint ensures that the last phalanx is in the extended end position. This causes the bone or tendon to grow back together.
The right size finger splint is very important. The finger splint should fit snugly to decrease the joint's freedom of movement. The finger splint should not be too tight.
Taking the measure is a painstaking job , but you can easily do it yourself with the help of an inch:
You measure this around the last finger joint. Place the measuring tape tightly over the finger. You can easily read the correct size in the table below. If you are unsure whether you have wide fingertips / joints, choose a size larger, because the finger splint is small. A finger indication is also shown in the table.
Note: This size chart is indicative only because there is a large anatomical spread in hand / finger shapes!
