Oval-8 Finger Splint

After injury to the finger, the small joints of the digit have a tendency to become slightly deformed, so it's important to provide the right support to correct any irregularity that may lead to further issues. The Oval-8 Finger Splint is a plastic multi-purpose finger splint that can be used either way up, providing adjustable support with stabilisation and immobilisation.

This item is for one individual finger splint. The Oval-8 Finger Splint 5 Pack and the Oval-8 Kit containing 44 Oval-8 finger splints are available if you wish to purchase multiple Oval-8 splints.

How Does the Oval-8 Finger Splint Work?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint has been designed to stabilise and immobilise the small joint of your finger following an injury or deformity.  This facilitates quick and effective treatment of a range of conditions, preventing your finger from bending uncomfortably while the injury heals. Each Oval-8 Finger Splint features three points of pressure, which work to support unstable joints and protect healing injuries.

Who Can Use the Oval-8 Finger Splint?

Available in a range of sizes (please see below for sizing information), the Oval-8 is ideal for virtually anybody looking to support a finger joint deformity or injury. Suitable conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Boutonniere Deformities
  • Crooked Finger
  • Fractures
  • Hypermobility (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome)
  • Lateral Deviation
  • Mallet Finger
  • Swan Neck
  • Trigger Finger
  • Trigger Thumb

Please note that the Oval-8 Finger Splint is not suitable for children under the age of four due to choking hazards.

On Which Joints Can I Wear the Oval-8 Splint?

The Oval-8 finger splint is suitable for both the middle joint and the top joint of your finger (nearest the fingertip). Our guide to How To Wear Your Oval-8 Splint provides a visual guide to ways in which the Oval-8 can be worn on different joints.

The Oval-8 Finger Splint Can Be Worn On Different Joints

How Do I Wear the Oval-8 Splint?

Quick and easy to use, the Oval-8 Splint can be inserted onto the finger and positioned over the joint that requires support. Please see our article about How to Wear Your Oval-8 Splint for a visual guide to wearing the Oval-8 for specific conditions. The PDF below also provides visual instructions for wearing your Oval-8 Finger Splint for specific conditions.

Can I Wear the Oval-8 Splint All Day and Night?

Yes! The Oval-8 Finger Splint has been designed for wearing both during the day and at night. This makes it an ideal solution for long-term finger conditions.

Can I Wear Two Oval-8 Splints on One Joint?

Two Oval-8 Finger Splints can be worn on one finger joint where your condition would benefit from this support. For example, a minor non-displaced fracture can be stabilised using two splints. Interlocking a larger splint with a smaller splint helps to immobilise a joint and prevent unwanted movement. 

Using Two Oval-8 Finger Splints

Can I Use Padding with the Oval-8 Finger Splint?

If you find that your Oval-8 Finger Splint is uncomfortable or a little too loose, padding it out can help to improve this. We recommend using a gel tube or similar for comfortable padding and improved fit.

You may also find that turning your Oval-8 around can improve its fit. As the band section of the splint is angled, it can be worn for either a loose or tighter fit. The end of the Oval-8 with the + (plus) symbol is slightly larger and will create a looser fit when put on the finger first. 

Can I Get the Oval-8 Finger Splint Wet?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is fully waterproof, meaning it can be worn in water when washing hands. It is also suitable for wearing while showering and swimming, ensuring you can continue to benefit from the splint throughout the day.

How Hygienic Is the Oval-8 Finger Splint?

The open-air design of the Oval-8 makes it incredibly hygienic to wear as it helps to keep the skin clean and dry. There is also no fabric to harbour germs, and the Oval-8 splint can be hand washed or disinfected with diluted bleach or alcohol.

What Is the Oval-8 Made From?

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is made from polypropylene plastic for good hygiene and comfort. It is also latex free, making it ideal if you're allergic to latex or find using latex-based products to be uncomfortable.

Sizing Information for the Oval-8 Finger Support

The Oval-8 Finger Splint is available in 12 ring sizes (based on US ring size numbers) from 2 through to 14. Please use the conversion table below to select your required size and choose the corresponding US size number from the drop down menu above. Our article How To Measure Your Finger for the Oval-8 Finger Splint may also help.

To measure your finger, you could use a jeweller's sizing device, or alternatively use a piece of string to mark out a millimetre measurement of the circumference of the joint. The measurement must be of the joint you wish to use the splint on. To achieve the best result we recommend purchasing one splint either side of your measurement to increase the likelihood of a good fit.

Size 2 4.3cm 1.75"
Size 3 4.5cm 1.81"
Size 4 4.95cm 1.94"

Oval 8 Finger Splint
Friday, 22 February 2019  | 

I was sceptical about this as I have a Heberden’s Node and wasn’t sure how this would work, or help, especially as I have to type for work... but this thing is brilliant. I can type and use the mouse and it’s brilliant. It’s also great as I often knock my finger and this protects it.

I am going to buy some more so I can leave them everywhere in case I forget it. I would definitely recommend this product as it is fab. I purchased a size 6 for my Index finger.

I’m very pleased with this product. Simple to order and delivered within a few days. I have only been wearing it for a few days; and the constant pain in my finger has improved a little. I’m sure it will continue to relieve the pain over the next few weeks.

You wouldn't believe it!

The splint arrived in a padded envelope. It was a size 10. I tried it on and think it was just a size too big.I was pleased with it as it was the same colour as my skin. But you wouldn't believe what happened next. I set it down and then couldn't find it anywhere. I searched the bin even. So can't really comment any further. Hope to buy another one soon. I was raging with myself for losing it before I got to try it properly

Much better than the bulky splint I was using before. A bit of a knack needed to get on but then comfortable and supportive without being too obvious.

No more pain
Saturday, 10 November 2018  | 

I have arthritis in the distal joint of my middle finger and as the autumn sets in it gets very swollen and painful. The Oval 8 is amazing. It supports the joint and in only a week the swelling has reduced and the pain gone.

I used to strap two fingers together which made it difficult to work so the Oval 8 has been a great improvement. It allows you to use your hand without further damage to the joint and is hardly noticeable unlike my bandage.....I used the inch side of the tape when measuring and glad I did. I would have bought the next size down otherwise and it would have been too small.
