Metacarpal Brace, also known as a boxer splint, is a piece of medical equipment designed to support and protect the fourth and fifth metacarpals. Metacarpal braces can be applied for medical conditions such as boxer fingers, metacarpal fractures, arthritis, rheumatoid, osteoporosis, tendonitis, joint swelling, injured fingers. Metacarpal braces reduce inflammation, joint swelling, pain, and fingers from further injuries.

The metacarpal brace is adjustable and fits both hands. It can be used while working or sleeping. To reduce swelling of the injured limb try to keep it on a pillow when you ice it or whenever you lay down. You can put ice on the limb for up to 20 minutes at a time. However, do not get the brace wet. You can put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin, or ask your doctor if you can take your brace off when you use ice.

How do I take care of my metacarpal brace?
Yes, you can wash your metacarpal brace in lukewarm water with a small amount of mild soap. Then air-dry it naturally.
Can I take a shower in my metacarpal brace?
No. Moisture under the brace and cause skin irritation. If you have a wound or have had surgery, moisture can even increase the risk of infection. Use plastic tape to cover your brace when you bathe. If your doctor allowed you to take the brace off when you bathe, make the area dry after bathing and put the brace back on.
What steps should I take if my skin gets irritated under my metacarpal brace?
Regularly check the skin under the brace. If you can't remove the brace, check the skin around the edges. Call your doctor if you see redness or sores. Do not use lotions near or under your brace. If the skin becomes red or sore around the edge of the splint, you may pad the edges with a soft cloth, or use tape to cover the edges.

There is usually immediate pain and swelling in the hand and you may also see that the hand is deformed. It is common to see a bump over the back of the hand where the fracture is located. Motion is painful and you will not be able to grip with the fingers due to pain.
