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.

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.

Oval 8 for Trigger Thumb
Tuesday, 31 August 2021  |  Andrea

What a simple and ingenious bit of kit! I've been struggling with a full thumb brace at work which made handling paperwork a real trial. The Oval 8 is comfortable and inconspicuous - doesn't stick out like a sore thumb!

I haven't had the oval 8 very long, but so far, so good. I can crochet while wearing it and find that it helps my finger pain. It was easy to order and arrived promptly.

Thursday, 1 April 2021  |  Alison

I have developed trigger thumb due to knitting every waking hour during lockdown year which is painful. This splint has relieved so much of the involuntary movement and stabilised the joint whilst it recovers. Only downside is that it is a little too hard and rubs but not so much that I canít wear it. Will have to get some silicone maybe. Excellent product.

I have had splints for quite a few years for a thumb/wrist injury & find them excellent the only trouble is I do lose one from time to time.

I was so pleased to find them at MedicalSupplies.co.uk. I ordered some and they arrived in 48 hours. Thank you, I shall be back when my stock depletes again.
