Silver Ring Splint Company

silver ring splint company logoIn 1985, occupational therapist and RA patient, Cynthia Garris set out to design and manufacture a new series of splints that were both more effective and far more attractive than the splints then in use. In the process, she revolutionized every aspect of splint therapy.

With SIRIS™ Splints, patients stop worrying about the appearance of their hands. They willingly wear the splints that their doctor recommends and for the first time ever, they begin to feel better about needing splints.
