An entirely new splint design formulated from design and fabrication instructions for thermal plastic splints across multiple hand splinting/fabrication textbooks and trying out numerous neoprene/Velcro braces, this splint was originally designed for personal use back in 2016. I have long struggled with flares of DeQuervian's tenosynovititis in my right hand and desperately needed a solution that worked for me. Everything I tried from OTC Velcro braces to the ones my PT custom made from thermal plastic were hot, uncomfortable, and restricted my movement too much to work while wearing them. It quickly became one of my most popular splints loved by artists and professionals for providing necessary support for everything from carpal tunnel to just generalized pain/inflammation, while being discreet and low profile enough to wear under gloves working with patients yet still allowing full normal range of motion for building and creating.

Expertly hand forged from heavy wire stock this splint helps stabilize the thumb MCP and CMC joints and block hyperextension, embellished with a beautiful faceted semi-precious gemstone set in a sterling silver or yellow gold filled bezel. This splint is available in nickel free stainless steel, sterling silver, yellow or rose gold filled, and of course titanium which can only be found here, and comes standard with our specially designed color matched fully adjustable stainless steel chain bracelet. We've recently redesigned the connections on this splint so that it allows total ease of use, no more struggling to get chains clasped where you want or inadequate support from not being able to clasp them tight enough!

  • All metals we use are 100% lead and nickel free hypoallergenic pure metals so they will not tarnish, rust, or lose their color and oxidize the skin. You can read about the variety of metal choices we offer below!*

    Nickel Free Stainless Steel- We only use high quality 430 stainless steel that is certified to be nickel free from the manufacturer. This type of steel has a slightly higher level of chromium than other types of stainless steel instead of the nickel that would typically be alloyed in. It has good corrosion resistance so will not pit, rust, or oxidize.

    Sterling Silver- Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper. The copper is necessary to strengthen the metal, as fine silver by itself is far too soft to be used in any jewelry application. While it's very rare, some people can react with the copper content and find their fingers oxidized. Sterling silver will be kept shiny by the natural oils in your skin from wearing it, but if it has been put away for a while may tarnish. If this happens, a simple jewelry cleaning cloth will remove the tarnish.

    Titanium- We use 99.9% pure Grade 2 titanium. This grade of titanium is softer that Grade 1 so that it can be hand worked into splints. Titanium is extremely lightweight and is an excellent option for those with sensory issues. Titanium is also the best choice for those with MCAS or severe metal allergies due to its hypoallergenic nature. It is very rare for titanium to cause a reaction.

    14k Gold Fill- We offer 14k Yellow and Rose gold filled options. Gold filled is similar to gold plated, but with a much thicker coating of 14k gold over a brass or copper core. This gives assurance that the gold will wear well, without flaking or peeling off like plated and having a more reasonable price than solid gold.

     

    *Please note that different metals have different tensile strengths so to ensure each splint has adequate and proper support not all sizes will be available in all materials.
