Index Finger Flexion Splint & DID / PIP Flexion Splint
The two main joints that make up the finger are the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint—the finger joint closest to the tip of the finger—and the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint—the second joint down from the tip of the finger. These joints can often succumb to a finger sprain that requires some form of finger orthotics in order to heal quickly and effectively. The finger joints are one of the most used body parts and with just one finger joint sprain, the ability to grasp and hold is diminished. Also works as an MCP flexion splint.
Features of the MobiDig Dynamic Flexion Splint
- As seen in the visual, this hand finger brace is for the flexion of the PIP finger joint and Dip finger joint.
- Durable padding makes this finger splint comfortable and effective.
- Linear elastic force keeps the finger stabilized.

Symptoms of DIP Joint Pain and PIP Joint Pain
- Finger joint pain and swelling.
- If the joint in the finger is completely dislocated it will visibly out of place.
A non-surgical method of recovering from a less severe form of this injury is where the Flexion Finger Splint is useful. It keeps the finger in the best position to be healed effectively for a short period of time before more exercise of finger joint pain treatment is needed. The finger PIP joint and DIP joint are carefully cared for and comforted in the recovery of a finger sprain.
