Joint Jack Finger Splint helps correct PIP finger flexion contractures. By turning the screw, the pressure can be changed quickly. For perfect fit, a soft steel splint can be bent. It comes with a cotton strap that can be adjusted and a felt pad. The MCP crease at the base of the finger and the centre of the nail bed should be measured to determine size. Devoid of latex.

What to buy with Finger Joint Splint

How to apply Joint Jack PIP Finger Flexion Contracture Splint?

  1. Bend the metal extension bar of the splint so the strap and screw fit directly at the PIP joint. Be sure the screw is directly perpendicular (at a 90º angle) to the metal plate.
  2. Adjust the ends with pliers for a comfortable/contoured fit in the palm and to avoid pressure at the tip. The pressure should be more on the volar plate of the DIP joint than on the tip of the finger.
  3. With the screw backed out, tighten the strap. A pen mark can be used to establish a consistent starting point.
  4. Gradually tighten the screw, so there is steady pressure, not pain. There is rapid, early gain that must be overcome for each application. Because of this "rapid gain phase," the successful use of the Joint Jack® follows applications of one hour or more. During the course of the hour, continue to tighten the screw to maintain steady pressure gradually. Be careful not to tighten the screw too aggressively, which may cause pain.
  5. Should the screw become fully tightened, it is backed off completely, the strap is taken up as much as possible, and the screw turning is resumed.
