What is the Medi Mallet Finger Splint?
A Transparent PE material Finger Splint
Mallet Finger is most commonly known as basketball finger. The injury occurs when the tip of the finger has taken a hard impact forcing the tip of the finger down resulting in over-stretch in the extensor ligament of the finger. Treatment for this is to immobilise the tip of the affected finger in a special splint – Mallet Splint.
The splint is made of plastic shaped like a well secure sleeve covering the tip of the finger including the last joint of the finger. It is secured in place by using tape and is intended to be kept on for protection and immobilisation to enhance healing.

How does it work?
The key to quick and effective injury recovery is PRICE. It stands for Protection Rest Ice Compression and Elevation
When an injury incur, we should follow the simple rules of PRICE to prevent further injury and reduce any delay that may occur during recovery. This Mallet finger will help to protect your finger from being knocked or sustain unwanted stress during vital first phase of recovery. Your finger will be immobilised comfortably in extension, so that your finger is rested in the best position and prevent from flexion contracture which can delay finger mobility later down the healing process.
The open nail bed design aids inspection and fixation of the splint, as well as offering optimal transpiration and support.
