  • Type of thumb spica splint: Hand and wrist brace covers the thumb, wrist, and parts of your hand.

Finger Splint types

  1. Buddy splints: In the buddy splinting technique, two adjoining fingers are taped together; the injured finger and the adjacent healthy finger. The fingers are taped on a point above and below the injury. These splints are normally used for mild sprains and strains not used for fractures.
  2. Static Splints: Static splints hold the joint in a specified position, either straight or slightly bent, depending on the injury. Some basic metal and foam static splints can be bought over the counter at drug stores. However, static splints can also be custom-made from moldable plastics or other casting materials. These splints are useful in treating fractures, repetitive use injuries, or tendon damage.
  3. Stack Splints: Stack splints are designed for injuries affecting the fingertips. These splints fit over the end of the finger to the first joint to hold the finger straight, preventing the joint from bending. Stack splints are usually made of plastic and come in various sizes. They have holes to promote good airflow.
  4. Dynamic Splints: Dynamic splints are designed to treat stiff joints. They feature spring-loaded mechanisms that are adjustable to provide the required amount of stretch for a joint that is stiff. Dynamic splints are made of plastic, foam, and metal. They are suitable to be worn at night or while the person is resting.
