SILVER RING SPLINTS

What are Silver Ring Splints?

Silver Ring Splints are a patented finger splint made from sterling silver which are custom made and sent from the USA. Silver Ring Splints can be used for a variety of reasons including:
  • hyperextension of small finger joints
  • lateral instability (sideways movement)
  • thumb stability
  • promoting joint extension
  • minimising and preventing further deviation of joints
  • trigger finger
  • dislocations and subluxations of the MP joints (knuckles)

 

Silver Ring Splints are ideal for:

  • long term splint use
  • those looking to avoid the stigma associated with typical “splints”, as they look like jewellery
  • EDS/Hypermobile patients looking for MP joint support
  • managing deformity in rheumatoid arthritis
