Aluminum Fingersplint from Dr. Paul Koch
This aluminum splint (aluminum thickness 1 mm), padded with foam on one side, is used to immobilize fingers. After measuring the required length, the necessary size is cut to fit. The splint should be cut long enough to overlap over the finger-tip dorsal-sidedly 3 - 4 cm. To avoid sliding off, it can be affixed to the finger in a semi-circular fashion with several band-aid strips.
Final fixation occurs with a gauze- or elastic-bandage
The bandage can be X-rayed, due to the aluminum. Rolls are available in lengths from 3 lft.
