Oval-8 Finger Splint

After injury to the finger, the small joints of the digit have a tendency to become slightly deformed, so it's important to provide the right support to correct any irregularity that may lead to further issues. The Oval-8 Finger Splint is a plastic multi-purpose finger splint that can be used either way up, providing adjustable support with stabilisation and immobilisation.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Finger Splint

How Does the Oval-8 Finger Splint Work?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint has been designed to stabilise and immobilise the small joint of your finger following an injury or deformity.  This facilitates quick and effective treatment of a range of conditions, preventing your finger from bending uncomfortably while the injury heals. Each Oval-8 Finger Splint features three points of pressure, which work to support unstable joints and protect healing injuries.

Can I Wear the Oval-8 Splint All Day and Night?

Yes! The Oval-8 Finger Splint has been designed for wearing both during the day and at night. This makes it an ideal solution for long-term finger conditions.

Can I Wear Two Oval-8 Splints on One Joint?

Two Oval-8 Finger Splints can be worn on one finger joint where your condition would benefit from this support. For example, a minor non-displaced fracture can be stabilised using two splints. Interlocking a larger splint with a smaller splint helps to immobilise a joint and prevent unwanted movement. 

Using Two Oval-8 Finger Splints

Can I Use Padding with the Oval-8 Finger Splint?

If you find that your Oval-8 Finger Splint is uncomfortable or a little too loose, padding it out can help to improve this. We recommend using a gel tube or similar for comfortable padding and improved fit.

You may also find that turning your Oval-8 around can improve its fit. As the band section of the splint is angled, it can be worn for either a loose or tighter fit. The end of the Oval-8 with the + (plus) symbol is slightly larger and will create a looser fit when put on the finger first. 

Can I Get the Oval-8 Finger Splint Wet?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is fully waterproof, meaning it can be worn in water when washing hands. It is also suitable for wearing while showering and swimming, ensuring you can continue to benefit from the splint throughout the day.

How Hygienic Is the Oval-8 Finger Splint?

The open-air design of the Oval-8 makes it incredibly hygienic to wear as it helps to keep the skin clean and dry. There is also no fabric to harbour germs, and the Oval-8 splint can be hand washed or disinfected with diluted bleach or alcohol.

What Is the Oval-8 Made From?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is made from polypropylene plastic for good hygiene and comfort. It is also latex free, making it ideal if you're allergic to latex or find using latex-based products to be uncomfortable.

Delivery Information

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is usually dispatched via Royal Mail and delivery should be within 1 to 3 working days.

A good buyp
Monday, 21 March 2022  |  Rosemary

Very useful. Can sleep without being woken with a 'locked' finger. Can slip off easily which is a downside if you have to look in the bedclothes for it. Nevertheless, I am very pleased it has given me some relief from pain and inconvenience.

I needed to wear this in bed to stop my fingers from clenching up during the night. Yes it works. It's a shame the sizes are not more flexible as I found that the second one I ordered was a bit too tight. Otherwise all good and they work.

Good product and service- too much packaging
Thursday, 27 January 2022  |  Susan

Ordered the oval 8 splint for trigger thumb. Ordering easy and arrived quickly. Definitely does a decent job at limiting movement in the joint without being too obtrusive. Itís very easy to lose though. Its pulled off my thumb a couple of times without me realising so I know to be careful now.
Very happy with purchase. My only gripe is with the packaging, excessively large envelope for size of product, resulting in greater postage costs than necessary not to mention environmental considerations.

Early days
Monday, 25 October 2021  |  Vicky

Bought to try and straighten osteoarthritis-affected little finger joints and protect a new flare up in another finger.
Too soon to know if it works or not.
Dispatch was very fast and items almost invisible on my finger. Can be worn in water and once on can forget about it. Too early to know if it will work.

Oval 8 for trigger (ring) finger
Friday, 24 September 2021  |  Elisabeth

The splint fits very well and is so discreet. I have only used it for about ten days, but hope it will stop the finger triggering after a month to six weeks.
