Fingers are one of the most dexterous parts of the human body. Our fingers are constantly working, even as these words are being typed. A small injury to any of the fingers or the thumb can make you very uncomfortable. Therefore, wearing the right splint will help the finger heal faster and lessen your pain. GPC Medical a pioneering rehabilitation aid manufacturing company offers the best of the finger splints at the most reasonable pricing.

Types of Finger Splints

Frog Splint

A frog splint is a light weight, high cushioned, sleek and simple brace that helps the injured finger by providing it the right alignment of the inter- phalangeal joints. This support helps the finger to maintain is optimal functions. 
An injured finger requires to be immobilized so that it can recover quickly. A frog splint helps the finger to be immobilized ensuring that the other fingers movements are not restricted. It is also extra malleable so that it can be shaped for a good grip.
Other than immobilizing the finger, we are also conscious about the comfort being given to the patient while wearing it. It is easy to wear, well ventilated, easy to clean, leaves no bad odour, has enough breathing room and is hypo allergic. All these features ensure that the patient does not feel any kind of uneasiness while wearing the frog splint. 

Mallet Finger Splint

A Mallet finger splint is required when the tendon in outermost joint of a finger is ripped. We can also say when the tip of the finger gets injured due to sports injury, or jammed your finger in the door.  This splint is designed in such a way that it supports the dip joint in hyper extension, while the movement of the PIP joint does not get restricted.
The splint that we make at GPC Medical ensures that the patient suffers no discomfort of any kind while wearing it. It is coated with an aluminum body which can be bent and is customized. It is designed in the most practical way to immobilize only the hyper extension of DIP joint. The inbuilt hook loop fasteners help to easily wear and remove it while giving it an excellent grip.

Finger Extension Splint

This kind of splint is usually required after a surgery, injury, trauma, or disease. The comfortable and adjustable finger extension and flexion splints apply a low-load, prolonged duration stretch (LLPS) across the joint using a tensioning system. This is helpful in achieving the required changes in the connective tissue for positive results. Wearing of the Finger Extension splint helps the finger to heal much faster.
We make finger splints that are convenient to wear by just inserting the finger. They are snugly fit and do not require any taping.
They are used for repairing Fracture and dislocations, Tendons and ligament repairs, Burns, Arterial and venous microsurgical repairs.  They also help in Boutonniere deformity and Dupuytren’s contracture. 

Thumb Spica Splint

It is a very comfortable and convenient device that keeps the thumb in a stiff position without disturbing the finger movements.  Thumb injuries like gamekeeper’s thumb, osteoarthritis, thumb sprains, post operative use, and post-removal of casting the hand thumb.
A spica splint has cushioned fabric on top for the comfort of the person wearing it and metal enclosed in the fabric that is pliable and can be molded as per the size and shape of the hand. The metal within also provides strength to the brace and supports the thumb and wrist.
GPC Medical Limited manufactures all the finger splints with preciseness and using the best foam and metal. They are all designed to customize the comfort of the patient and have enough room to let the air pass without giving away the snugness required to hold the finger.  They also have a sleek look with a skin matching pleasing colour that can be easily cleaned.
