Hey, nice! Sometimes i't the small things. Have you tried printing it in clear filament like the XTclear ? It's more discrete that way!

Certain medical conditions can cause ones fingers to start closing automatically. If it isnt corrected, they can eventually degrade and close into a fist permanently.

This helps prevent that.

I designed this for a family member that was paying $3 - $4 a piece for a similar design.
