Mallet Finger

Can I use Oval-8 splints to treat a Mallet Finger?

Yes you can. Oval-8s are ideal for treating Mallet Fingers. The Oval-8s will hold the DIP straight or if needed, they can be adjusted using the Precision Spot heat gun to hold the DIP in slight hyperextension. The open design keeps the skin clean and dry and generally no tape or strapping is needed to hold them in place. The wearer can shower or wash their hands with the Oval-8 on without having to replace straps or tape. This leads to better compliance and better treatment results.
