When to Use a Finger Splint
The Digitec Mallet Finger Splint is specifically designed to alleviate mallet finger deformities by immobilising and supporting the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint in a neutral position. We therefore recommend using this kind of product in a number of situations:
- Mallet finger
- Persistent, continual or recurring finger pain
- Numbness or tingling caused by things like MS or diabetes
How Should a Finger Splint Fit?
A finger splint should not needs to be sufficiently snug so as to immobilise the finger. This protects it from further damage and enforces sufficient blood flow which is essential for the healing process. The splint should stop the finger from drooping, holding it upright.
