Use the SilverRing™ EDS Splint to correct hyperextension of the MP joints without blocking flexion. Typically only one EDS Splint located on the middle finger is needed. With the splint centrally located it can help block all fingers from hyperextending during most activities. If needed the EDS Splint can be worn on adjacent fingers. If the small fingers MP is hyperextending and/or dislocating you may also want to look at the 2½ Buddy Ring to control MP movement.
The SilverRing™ EDS Splint is designed to reduce or block hyperextension but of equal importance it is used for proprioception of the hand and fingers. Due to the leverage that can be exerted on the splint some find they can overpower the bars. One should consider that this splint is used as a reminder to change how they use their hand as much as it is for forcibly blocking MP hyperextension. A “Rocker Bar” can be added to the dorsal bar to help disperse the pressure on the back of the hand.
