The Flexsplint™ helps stop straight finger or thumb. It can be worn on the mid finger joint (PIP joint), end fingertip joint (DIP joint), or end thumb joint (IP joint). Wear the mid-section of the splint on the bottom of the finger or thumb joint. The splint will force the joint into slight flexion/bent position. Meant for those individuals who have a joint that will not bend on its own, which hinders dexterity. The angle of the bend can be adjusted.
