FAQs

Will PowerSplint fit my finger?

Yes! PowerSplint works for adults and children (generally 8+).
There are multiple sizes available and the side “wings” flex in or out to fit various finger widths.
Please see our “Size Chart” tab to know which size will fit you.

Is a PowerSplint easy to fasten?

Yes, very easy. If you take 2 minutes to watch our "How to fasten" demo video and practice the tape job one time, you'll be able to quickly fasten a PowerSplint for your first real use.

Do pro athletes use PowerSplint?

Yes. We have pro athletes in the NFL, NBA, MLB and many other professional sports leagues in the USA and internationally that use PowerSplint.

Do I have to tape my fingers together ("buddy" taping)

No. Part of what makes PowerSplint a great product is that buddy taping is NOT needed, meaning you can move your fingers normally while getting the best protection possible!

Where do I purchase more 1/3 inch sports tape?

Additional 1/3 inch sports tape is available for purchase here on powersplint.com

How long does a PowerSplint last before I need to replace it?

Each PowerSplint generally last for 3-6 months. The core will last forever but the foam cover does eventually wear down.

How many PowerSplints come in a pack?

PowerSplints are sold in packs of 2 (same size/color). One roll of 1/3 inch sports tape is also included.

Will PowerSplint affect the way I play my sport?

No. You can pass a football, set a volleyball, shoot a basketball, field a baseball, block a shot on goal, etc. as you normally would. You won’t even know you’re wearing a PowerSplint unless someone hits your finger and you remember you’re glad you have one on!

Will PowerSplint fit under a baseball/softball mitt? What about on top of football/batting gloves?

PowerSplint will fit under baseball or softball mitts. We suggest cutting off the front stretchy velcro and instead use standard sports tape.
PowerSplint will also fit on top of football gloves or baseball/softball batting gloves.

Will I still be able to bend my finger when wearing a PowerSplint?

Yes! PowerSplint allows for a FULL range of finger motion. No need to adjust mid-game – just keep playing!

Does PowerSplint work for Mallet finger injuries?

If you are dealing with a Mallet finger injury (where the front/distal part of your finger drops downward) we suggest cutting off the front velcro and using standard sports tape for the front strap. This will increase protection for that area of the finger. We have many athletes that use our product in this manner. See our "PowerSplint Medical Summary" for more detail.

A mallet finger is a deformity of the finger caused when the tendon that straightens your finger (the extensor tendon) is damaged. When a ball or other object strikes the tip of the finger or thumb and forcibly bends it, the force tears the tendon that straightens the finger. The force of the blow may even pull away a piece of bone along with the tendon. The tip of the finger or thumb no longer straightens. This condition is sometimes referred to as baseball finger.

Has PowerSplint been tested?

PowerSplint has been tested by professional and amateur athletes in many different sports. Professional athletic trainers, doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors have also tested this product and given their approval!

Why is PowerSplint better than buddy taping?

We don’t understand why any athlete would try to tape 2 fingers together and then think that won’t interfere with how they perform. Also, does tape really help against hard hits? That’s like asking paint to protect a car in a collision. Every athlete and trainer we know has told us they prefer PowerSplint to buddy taping. PowerSplint protects better and does not interfere – the perfect combination!

Does PowerSplint make any guarantees?

Like any type of sports equipment we can’t make any guarantees, however, if the Pros love it we think you will too!

Is PowerSplint patented?

PowerSplint is patent-pending. Never before has an athletic finger splint that doesn’t bend AND doesn’t interfere with performance been released to the market. We at PowerSplint are proud to have invented a product that will help so many athletes of all ages. We love sports!
