Silver Ring Splints - on a Child


This is just a really quick post to share the picture I took of Bug's Silver Ring Splints (SIRIS) . Keep in mind she is just 7 - so these are tiny rings! :)

They are so beautiful though - and have been wonderful with all of her swelling finger issues. I just have to say again, if your child has hypermobile fingers, do not let anyone tell you that they won't wear splints! Bug has worn them since 5, and now at 7 is in silver instead of plastic. She knows and will tell you herself how much they help her!

Thanks for sharing! They ring splints look great. They are much less obvious than the plastic ones. Bug - YOU GO GIRL!! Terry

Thanks for posting this! You're right--they are pretty, nothing like I imagined they'd look like!

I've been wondering about them for myself, because my fingers keep getting locked in a hyperextended position. I'll have to look into them more when I get my health insurance issues sorted out.

Oh, those are quite pretty, thank you for posting this. I have a nonspecific connective tissue disorder and my OT suggested these rings also, however he wondered where you got them. I need one for the same joint on my thumb, but we cannot find it.

Hi!

You get them from the Silver Ring Splint Company. Your OT can contact them to get a measurement kit and forms. He measures you and fills the form out and you then mail it in.

I hope this helps - my daughter still loves hers dearly and they help so much!

Yes, they do seem to help with writing. In fact Bug has done much better with writing (as far as stamina) since getting them. You really should check them out! :)

I have some silver ring splints as well as my mother ( ew both have EDS) Mine are for the middle joint, tell Bug to keep being beautiful with her sliver splints (which most people think that they are rings)
