Helps to alleviate boutonniere deformity of the PIP/mid finger joint by providing anti-flexion support. Loops can be adjusted to the angle needed.
How to Find Your Size
To ensure a custom fit, we provide different measurement options for your convenience.
For the affected joint, wrap a measuring tape (or “tailor’s tape”) above the joint (distal size), then around the joint (joint size), then below the joint (proximal size). Pull the tape just snug, but not so snug that it puts pressure around the finger or thumb. Centimeters or millimeters (10mm=1cm) are highly preferred over inches (inches or wide measuring tapes can result in an inaccurate fit).
For the affected joint, loop an adjustable ring sizer (or "multisizer") above the joint (distal size), then around the joint (joint size), then below the joint (proximal size). Pull the sizer just snug, but not so snug that it puts pressure around the finger or thumb, you should still be able to slide the sizer slightly.
If you are unsure of your size and don’t want to “risk it”, you can request a Fit Kit. Once you’ve placed your order, a free reusable Fit Kit will be mailed to you. The included multisizer and instructions will allow you to determine your custom splint size. Simply contact us as soon as you have your sizing information.
Joint: the PIP joint is the middle joint of the fingers, the DIP joint is the end joint of the fingers, the IP joint is the end joint of the thumb
Proximal: in location to the joint, the proximal side is closer to the body, near the palm of the hand (typically referred to as "below" the joint)
Silver Plate: A thin layer of silver is wrapped around an inner copper core. Silver that is "plated" over copper. Silver plated splints will wear off the silver layer and the copper core will show through. This timeframe depends on wear, body chemistry, and how often the metal is exposed to water and chemicals. Though the silver may wear through, the wearability and functionality of the splint will remain.
Gold Jeweler's Brass: Gold color throughout, gold brass splints will not wear off any color, they will always remain gold, and have a non tarnish component.
Copper: Will not wear off any color, they are copper throughout. I hand select a "non tarnish" copper which has an extremely slow tarnish rate, and may never tarnish under some circumstances and environments.
92.5 Sterling Silver: Can be worn like any piece of Silver jewelry. They may tarnish at some point, which can be remedied easily with a gentle jewelry cleaner or polishing pad. Sterling Silver splints will remain brilliant and vibrant with little maintenance.
93.5 Argentium Silver: Can be worn like any piece of Silver jewelry. This metal is purer and stronger than Sterling, and up to 7 times more tarnish resistant. A simply beautiful metal.
