Finger Immobilizer Splint for Index, Middle, Ring or Pinky Sprains, Fractures & Contracture
Recovering from a finger injury or surgery or managing a chronic hand condition is tough. Daily activities such as work and errands can cause debilitating pain. A long, two finger immobilizer can help you get through everyday tasks without aggravating your injury. This full-length hand splint limits finger movement, promoting natural healing and preventing re-injury.
Along with post-surgical protection, our medical-grade finger splint can be used as an alternative treatment to help you avoid surgery for conditions such as:
Dupuytren’s contracture (also called Viking hand deformity).
- Intrinsic hand contracture.
- Trigger finger.
- Mallet finger (a fingertip tendon injury, also called "baseball finger").
- Jammed fingers.
- Jersey finger.
- Broken knuckles.
- Sprained, bruised or dislocated finger joints.
- 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th metacarpal fractures (and boxer fracture).
- Arthritis or tendonitis finger pain.
Because it provides hand support along with stable extension of the proximal interphalangeal, distal interphalangeal, and metacarpophalangeal joints, this versatile single or double finger immobilizer can also help with:
- Post-stroke or palsy finger curling.
- Clenched hands.
- Radial gutter (if the aluminum splint is bent correctly).
- PIP, DIP, and MCP extension or joint pain.
- Proximal or distal phalanx fractures (broken phalanges).
- Claw hand (curved, curled, bent, or crooked fingers).
- Can be used as an EDS finger splint (for Ehlers-Danos Syndrome Hypermobility).
- Boutonniere deformity.
- Swan neck deformity.
- Ulnar claw (Spinsters Claw).
As always, we recommend consulting with a doctor about the underlying cause of your crooked fingers. Especially if a brace is needed to keep your fingers straight.
7 Reasons Why People Love This Two Finger Extension Brace
Features a Bendable Aluminum Splint
Bend and mold the malleable aluminum metal splint to match the natural curve of your hand and fingers.
Wear on Your Right or Left Hand
Unlike most hand and finger splints on the market, this mallet finger brace can be worn interchangeably on your right or left hand. It is available in three sizes, fitting men, women, and children for the treatment of finger conditions and injury prevention after surgery or cast removal.
Adjustable Straps for the Perfect Fit
The two middle straps are removable. Easily detach or move them along the hard splint to fit the shape of your wrist, palm, and fingers more comfortably. For example, if the brace seems too big (there is too much space above your fingers), remove the second strap, slide the splint down your wrist, and readjust the remaining three straps.
The adjustable straps may also come in handy when you need to remove bandages or place ice over your hand to reduce swelling.
Less Restrictive Than Most Finger Supports
Have a finger injury that requires splinting but unable to find a brace that doesn’t hinder mobility? Use this hand and finger straightener on any two adjacent fingers, leaving the rest of your hand open to move freely, as needed.
Breathable and Lightweight Design
It’s no surprise that immobilization is a must after you’ve sprained, broken, or jammed your fingers but wearing a hard cast can be irritating. Wearing this splint for torn ligaments and broken fingers is a more comfortable option compared to a cast. With this splint, you receive the same full support and immobilization of a cast but without all the irritation and itching.
The aluminum splint is covered in a breathable and lightweight padded sponge foam and nylon material, keeping your hand cool and comfortable during extended wear.
Easy Single or Double Finger Immobilization
Conveniently apply and adjust this finger wrap with one hand for simple and fast finger protection. For lower degrees of sprains and tears, this type of proximal phalanx splint can be removed as needed for showering, etc. Plus, the middle straps can be detached for lesser stabilization as you progress through the recovery process. The straps can be wrapped around one finger, or any two fingers which are next to each other (like a buddy splint)
One Step Above Buddy Taping
If you haven’t heard of it, buddy taping is used for various finger or knuckle injuries, including some finger fractures. It’s a technique that involves taping your damaged finger together with a healthy finger. This allows your healthy finger to act as a splint, keeping your hurt digit in a natural position for healing. This two finger brace shares the same philosophy as buddy taping, without the hassle of tape. Plus, it includes a splint beneath your fingers for extra support.
If you’re searching for a splint-free alternative to use during physical activities, our reusable buddy finger wraps share the same philosophy as buddy taping.

So far, this has helped my Dupuytan’s fingers to stay straight at night. I switch hands nightly and although my fingers are stiff and a bit painful in the morning, I feel like I have better range of motion during the day. Great support and ease of adjusting.
The instructions were good and it fits well but I found the metal support very difficult to bend.
Good and nice fit brace. Helps keep hand resting to heal. Just what I was looking for to support my middle fingers for a possible tendon injury. Thank u again for developing a awesome brace.
