Finger Splint / Finger Protector by carbonbased Jan 15, 2013

Description

I very sensibly tried to cut my fingertip off with a pair of tin snips the other day. I damn near did it too, with just about 20% left attached. Since I was also sensible enough not to seek medical attention nor get any stitches, I designed and printed this finger splint to prevent any further trauma while things are healing.

It is sized for my middle finger, and I do have little girly-man hands, so you may have to scale things up or down to suit your needs. I actually hope that no one needs this thing, but I'll be glad if it does help someone who does.

Great thing! I think I will print one as I just made one of thingiverse.com/thing:72022 ;-)
UPDATE - My finger is all healed, and this thing helped tremendously in preventing additional trauma to my finger tip.
Seek medical help also if it smells bad. Otherwise, a nice idea. Someone could manufacture splints for any severe cut or bone fracture.
