Distal Finger Splint
|Size||Circ. Distal Interphalangeal Joint (cm)|
Features & Benefits
- Rigid distal finger splints are designed to support and protect the distal region of the finger.
- The most common condition is known as mallet finger and this is caused by injury to the tendon that extends the finger, preventing the final joint of finger from fully straightening out.
- The Orthotix splint holds the distal interphalangeal joint (the final finger joint) in a neutral/extended position during rehabilitation.
- Our splints are also suitable for protecting injuries to the end of the finger and the nail bed, for instance crush injuries caused by trapping the finger in a door.
- While wearing a mallet splint of the correct size, you should still be able to move the middle knuckle (proximal interphalangeal joint)
- Our distal finger splints are available in 7 sizes. To find the correct size, simply measure around the final joint (distal) at the end of the affected finger or thumb, and then identify the size you need from our table in the images.
- The splint is made of plastic shaped like a well secure sleeve covering the tip of the finger including the last joint of the finger. Secured the splint in place by using tape and is intended to be kept on for protection and immobilisation to enhance healing.
