This splint is designed to immobilize the IP joint and hold it straight, most commonly needed in cases of tendon damage or injury from things such as jamming or dislocating a finger.

This splint will also help when nodes are forming in the IP joint by immobilizing to allow inflammation to subside, and may help to slow or stop the growth. Please note that in some severe cases with nodes or injury this type of splinting is not possible due to significant size difference between the middle of the joint and the finger below it where the bottom ring of the splint will sit. If you have considerable size difference between the joint and surrounding finger please contact me with pictures to confirm you'll be able to use the splint prior to purchase.

Please select your metal type and size from the drop down menus.

This splint is adjustable within about a half size larger or smaller.

  • 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.
