What are Finger Cots Used for?
A finger cot, aka a finger protector, is used to cover a finger that has open wounds, blisters, burns, or cuts. It protects the finger from moisture, dirt, and any other type of contamination. Finger cots are also worn by medical professionals while applying topical medication, and can be secured over a dressing on the finger to keep it dry. Finger cots are often also used as a substitute for a condom.
Since air circulation decreases when wearing a finger protector, it should only be worn for short periods at a time.
Finger cots are usually made from watertight materials such as latex, vinyl, and nitrile rubber.
What is the Difference Between a Finger Cot and a Glove?
A finger cot only covers one finger, while a glove covers the whole hand. This is why if you’re doing something that may contaminate more than just one finger, than a glove is necessary, but if you’re only going to be using one finger, a finger protector is perfect.
What is a Finger Splint?
When a finger is fractured or sprained, a finger splint positions the finger in place and keeps it from moving so that it can heal properly. A finger splint can also be used to increase the mobility of a finger that isn’t naturally in the proper position, and therefore requires frequent stretching. Finger splints are most commonly used as treatment for injured fingers, but they are also used by individuals with arthritis.
