I have decided to do a few giveaways...the first being the biggest! I am giving away a very gently used Silver Ring Splint for the thumb, originally made by Silver Ring Splint Company. It can be used for the left or right hand and is a size 8 1/2. Please make sure the size is alright before you enter the contest. You can use a ring sizer, make sure 8 1/2 will fit over your knuckle and not be too big. But, this will save you one hundred-ish dollars, so well worth your sizing efforts! This splint, in particular, guards your right lower (closer to your wrist) thumb joint. This joint is the one that goes out on me when I pick up a grocery bag, things like that that use grip.
The splits are wonderful, but I had surgery on my right hand to fix my thumb and so I don't need my right splint anymore (again, this can be used on right or left side). I will probably be having the surgery on my other side (and will post about the great surgery) so you might have a chance to win another splint in the future!
For those of you that would like to see the splint in action, here's a really old video of me demoing the splints:
