Although PowerSplint is known for being the finger protection choice for professional and amateur athletes worldwide, PowerSplint is also used by many cheerleaders for finger support. Cheerleaders often lift or catch each other, which can put a lot of strain on their fingers, especially fingers that have been injured. Finger injuries to the DIP joint, PIP joint, or finger tendons and ligaments can make it hard to perform cheerleading routines. PowerSplint offers comfortable finger support so that performance is maximized. Other types of finger splints just don't work. They are awkward, uncomfortable and don't allow for full finger motion. PowerSplint solves all those problems - it's extremely comfortable and lightweight and it doesn't at all interfere with range of finger motion. So if you're a cheerleader needing powerful finger support then PowerSplint is the finger support aid for you!
