Over 25 years ago, the founder of OvalSplints, started out designing and manufacturing medical equipment for major medical device companies. Developing his knowledge of design and the manufacture of complex medical products, revolutionising ways of conducting surgical procedures and reducing recovery time and improved patient outcomes.
At a family gathering an aunt explained she suffered from an arthritic condition that made her finger hurt when bent. The plastic splint she was using to aid her finger recovery and reduce pain was not comfortable to wear or discrete in its appearance.
It was not long before the founder was using his expertise, in medical design and evolving technologies, to make the first OvalSplint product.
In 2019, the company OvalSplints LLP was established with the ambition to design and manufacture discrete, ergonomic, comfortable, functional, and affordable orthopaedic splints for distribution to the community. To date this has been done via third party selling platforms and from the 20/09/2021 we are delighted to announce that OvalSplints will be selling direct via a new website.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, OvalSplints are simple elegant in design that feature three points of pressure, which work to support unstable joints & protect healing injuries. Ovalsplints products can be worn in different ways on your fingers or thumbs to help treat a variety of common conditions; like Mallet finger, Mallet Thumb, Trigger finger, Trigger thumb, controlling Swan Neck, Boutonniere deformity, hypermobility (EDS), crooked finger, finger arthritis, thumb arthritis and protecting fractures or jammed fingers.
Further manufacturing process developments have also been made this year. Now all splints are made from USP Class VI certified biocompatible latex free material making it ideal for people who suffer from skin conditions and for long term skin contact applications. Manufacturing process developments have also enabled the manufacture of a new amber coloured splint that blends to any skin tone making it an even more discreet splint design.
Since 2019, OvalSplints has helped thousands of people by offering superior splint products proven to help make people’s daily lives easier by helping them manage arthritis and other health conditions that affect our finger or thumb joints. OvalSplints products are ideal for immobilising the joint to encourage proper healing and joint correction. They also improve finger or thumb stability and alignment for better hand function and are light, comfortable, waterproof, 32 different sizes available, have a smooth polished surface and no straps or tape required.
