FROM HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS:
"I have used these for several years and continue to issue them for a few simple reasons: they are quick to fit, patients really like the immediate result and comfort and in a busy clinic, reissuing them is a cinch! Highly recommend them for uncomplicated patients when prefab is the need of the day!"
- Deb H., MS, OTR/L, CHT - Vermont Sports Medicine Center
"I personally use the Oval-8 splints when I have a patient who needs to test out a PIP or DIP support before deciding to purchase. It is a nice way to find out if the support is right for them and they don't need to spend the money up front. They usually love the way they can still make a full fist and function in the Oval-8. Thank you for making a great product!"
- Ildiko, OTR CHT - West Orange, NJ
"I tried everything else on an older lady who couldn't tolerate the metal rings or anything I made her. She has very thin skin from years of Prednisone use. She found the Oval-8 to be very comfortable and loves the way they control her fingers. For the amount of time I spent trying to fit her with other things I could have bought the whole Oval-8 Kit and still saved money."
- K. C., Delaware
" We are using them for collateral instability and for fractures. For patients with acute avulsion fractures we give them two, one that fits now and one that will fit when their swelling goes down. They are inexpensive enough that we can do that. Our patients are really happy with them."
- Jody, Wisconsin
"The Oval-8 rings are great. We are even using them to hold finger positions during x-ray."
"I tell people - these [splints] are the difference between Neiman Marcus and K-Mart. They feel like Neiman Marcus but the prices are closer to K-Mart".
- L. G., Baltimore, Maryland
". As a hand therapist I have taught patients with arthritis to protect their joints when they were swollen and inflamed by wearing splints when the tips of my finger joints (DIP jts) started to swell and ache. So I applied the splints to my inflamed fingers The swelling disappeared and has not returned. In the future I plan to educate patients to use the splints for prevention of deformity."
- P. B., MS, OTR/L, CHT
"I congratulate you for the products that are anatomical, discreet and are helping my patients."
- Occupational Therapist from Brazil
“Allows for movement except for bending of the joint. It is comfortable and almost invisible. It can be worn in water without damage to the plastic.”
TREATING A MALLET FINGER:
"Have an untreated mallet finger that turned into a swan neck deformity (think)...went to Hand Therapist yesterday (1st time) and she introduced your Oval-8 splints to me: THANK YOU!!! First relief from throbbing (sometimes awful, always there) for first time in 16 years."
- Aimee, Oregon
TREATING A TRIGGER FINGER:
“I was suffering from severe trigger finger and a doctor recommended the Oval 8 splint. I wear it every night in bed and the pain is gone and I rarely lock up any more. I highly recommend trying this before surgery.”
FOR USE ON ARTHRITIC FINGERS:
"I was prescribed ring splint to help keep my fingers from deforming due to arthritis. I find that they are comfortable, easy to wear, and accomplish the purpose. I was surprised to find that they also helped to ease the pain from arthritis in the fingers with the splint - much better than needing to rely on drugs to handle the pain."
