ABS hand-finger positioning orthosis
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. It may result in brain necrosis which lead to disability or even death. After stroke incident, hemiplegia is one of the common conditions, including spasticity which means involuntary muscles contracts. Spasticity involves distal body part, including hand and limits its function. A stroke is a medical emergency, and prompt treatment is crucial. Early action can reduce brain damage and other complications. Due to this fact, spasticity’s prevention with our fingerboard stroke hand splint is essential.
Stroke hand splint is a short, hand device which maintains it extended. Made of lightweight, thermoformated ABS and covered with skin friendly fabric ActivDistance™.
ActivDistance™ is 3-layered lamination, made of comfort foam and 2 non-elastic polyamide layers. ActivDistance™ is not elastic what improves stabilization. The foam inside makes our fabric very soft and comfortable. ActivDistance™ is self-gripping in both sides, so you can fit our devices perfectly.
ABS thermoformated material is extremely lightweight and comfortable. Special holes allow the air flow and skin to breath.
Anatomic-shaped fingerboard maintains the hand in neutral, extended position.
Fingers Velcro straps allow for individualized finger adjustments and allow user to adjust each finger independently. What is more, stroke hand splint is equipped with metatarsal and wrist strap for better stabilization.
Our fingerboard stroke hand splint controls the increase of muscle tension in the hand area. It maintains the hand in neutral, extended position, preventing involuntary flexors tensions. The stroke hand splint OKG-12 prevents finger flexion convulsion, deformation and deformity.
Both, systematic daily use of hand brace and rehabilitation reduce risk of hand spasticity and improve its function.
The hand brace is suitable not only for people after stroke, but for those suffering from other neurological conditions such as: cerebral palsy (CP), brain injury, peripheral neuropathy, paraplegia, Parkinson’s disease or brain tumor.
His innovative design fingerboard allows to offer it in one, universal size.
