When should I wear the Comforter Splint?
The Comforter Splint is designed to be worn at night to let your hands rest in a stress-free position.
Should I wear splints on both hands?
If arthritis affects both your hands then we recommended wearing a splint on each hand. The Comforter Splint leaves your fingertips and thumb free so you can put on both splints and still pull up your covers or adjust your pj’s.
Will this make my hands feel better?
Most people report that they wake up with less stiffness and pain in their fingers, allowing them to move better in the morning. We have heard from several people that it does take them several nights to "learn" to wear the splints throughout the night and once they do, they don’t’ want to be without them.
I had a stroke and my hand tends to curl up at night when I sleep. Will this splint help?
The Comforter Splints holds your wrist and fingers straight and lets the middle and end joints of your fingers relax. For many people who have had a stroke, splinting the fingers straight causes them to push against the splint and can result in deformity. The Comforter Splint avoids this and has been reported to be quite helpful to those who have had a stroke especially if your fingers curl up tightly at night. It is strongly recommended that you discuss any splint with your health care providers.

Comforter Splint Video
The softly padded Comforter Splint provides the rest needed to reduce inflammation and morning stiffness in your fingers and wrists caused by various inflammatory arthropathies such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Watch this video to learn how to correctly wear the Comforter Splint.
Wear: The Comforter Splint is recommended for nighttime use to rest your fingers and wrist in a stress-free position.
How to Wear: When putting on your splint, please straighten the bendable stays carefully and gently slide your hand into your splint. The finger stays should be lightly shaped into half circles over your fingers. Please avoid over bending as this may cause them to break.
Please note: It may take a week or so before you fully get used to wearing your Comforter Splint at night.
Care: Carefully remove the quilted cover and straps from the base of the splint. The quilted cover may be hand or machine washed in cool water. Close all the hook closures and slip the cover into a small mesh bag for machine washing. Air dry flat. Rinse the plastic shell with soap and water and rinse thoroughly in clear water. Towel dry and allow finger covers to air dry before reapplying the quilted cover.
