Oval-8 Sizing Information
There are 3 recommended ways to choose the proper size Oval-8 Finger Splint:
1. Visit your health care provider or medical supply specialist.
2. Do-it-yourself with the Oval-8 Sizing Guide
3. Visit your local jeweler to be sized with a ring sizer.
||TWO SIZES IN EVERY SPLINT
The angled band of the Oval-8 design allows each of the 14 sizes to fit a full Oval-8 size and a size and a half. Oval-8 splints can be fit over bandages or thin gel sheeting or gel tubes as needed for cushioning and protection.
1. Visit your health care provider
Choosing the correct size Oval-8 splint is best done by a healthcare provider or medical supply specialist using the splints themselves in the professional Sizing Set.
2. NEW Do-It-Yourself Sizing Guide
The second best option is the NEW Oval-8 Sizing Guide for a “do-it-yourself” option. Designed to determine a range of sizes certain to fit, the Sizing Guide is easy to use and makes ordering Oval-8 Finger Splints easier than ever.
Once the range of sizes is chosen, simply click on the Where To Buy link to choose the web store of your choice.
3. How To Size With A Jewelers Ring Sizer
Oval-8 splint sizes are close to, but not a perfect match for, jewelry ring sizes. A ring size will be close and ordering a set of Graduated Sizes will improve the chance that you have the best size for your finger.
Ask the jeweler to fit the ring gauge around the joint where the Oval-8 splint will be worn. Do not fit the gauge where you wear a ring. As each Oval-8 splints fits both a size and a size and a half, if the ring size is an 8 and a half, the Oval-8 size 8 would be the proper one to choose.
Adjusting Oval-8 splints
With a total of 28 sizes, it is rare not to find an Oval-8 size that fits just right. If the size or length is not exact, Oval-8 splints can be adjusted. Because a high degree of heat is required to make an accurate adjustment, it is strongly recommended that any adjustments are done by a Hand Therapist, Occupational Therapist or Orthotist.

Caution: Please note that Oval-8 finger splints are not recommended for children under age 4 as they may cause choking if swallowed.
