Mallet finger splint

Good. Could be used only at night as use of hand was otherwise limited. Combined with use of a plastic OVAL-8 Splint which allowed 24 hour use of hand. Not ideal for initial treatment of mallet finger.

Very comfortable

When you order something like this, its because of a pretty specific injury. I had used ones available from pharmacy's that were made of aluminium and foam and covered your entire finger which then had to be held together with tape but for me, were incredibly uncomfortable. This product is comfortable and although it does get in the way a bit if you have to use a computer or are quite active in the outdoors, you'd be hard pressed to find a brace that didn't. The one thing that could be improved is that your finger can slip off the foam part, even though it is held down with a bit of velcro, you may also need some tape to hold it in place. Otherwise it’s a great product, simple and effective.

Doctors review of finger splint

One of the best splints for "mallet deformity" . Aka distal extensor tendon sprain/tear. The splint maintains extension of the finger which allows approximation of the ends of the torn tendon and thus healing. Because this splint allows air to the majority of the finger, it does not cause irritation or maceration of the skin. Since it takes 6-8 weeks of wearing a splint constantly in order for the tendon to heal, this is very important. Very comfortable- I have mine on now!
