    Exclamation Question about the oval 8 finger splint

    These can be used for Boutonniere or swan neck deformity, mallet finger, or sports injuries.

    I can't wear the typical bulky splints that can be found at any drugstore because they are too large and interfere with hand movement. I need to be able to wear the splints 24/7 for 6 weeks or longer. The oval 8 splints can be worn all the time, even while showering, and don't interfere with normal hand movement.

    My pharmacist said she can order some for me but needs to know what size so I don't end up wasting money getting the wrong size. In order to find out what size I need, I would need to go to a hand therapist or orthopedic/brace supplier and let them fit me, all for the low low price of $75 to $150. I don't have that right now. What I do have is the PIP joints on my pinky fingers on both hands in need of splints in order to prevent further deformity. Supposedly, the sizing kits they use are similar (but not exact) to ring sizes so could I use my PIP joint measurement for the size?
