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.

Stack Fingersplint from Dr. Paul Koch
Tendon-injuries of phalanges are treated with Stack’s splints in conservative therapy.
The principal of Stack’s splints is based on hyperextension of the injured phalanx. Fixation occurs with band-aid strips or velcro, and so guarantees secure fit.
It consists, among other things, of a thermoplastic acrylic resin plastic, which is perforated multiple times for improvement of wearing-properties, and therefore counter-acts skin macerations. This material can be formed over a flame ( bunsen-burner, etc. ) and also in hot water.
The cap over the phalanx media can be affixed with velcro or band-aid strips.
Even with multiple improvements to the splints, it is recommended to at least cover the injured finger with a tube bandage. Even better is covering the splint with a thin felt-layer, to prevent skin maceration.
