Product Code: AR10014
Positioned on a table: This aid is used to invite and guide the patient through prone supination tasks with their forearm. Two knobs below the equipment are used to position it correctly for the patient. The proximal support on which the forearm is placed must be adjusted to a height that keeps the shoulder in a comfortable, neutral position.
By raising and lowering the adjustment element with the elbow flexed, the position is changed to extra/intra rotation of the upper limb respectively. The knob nearest to the handle is used to adjust it to the correct tilt on the prone supination plane, while the upper knob is used to adjust a system that is able to provide resistance to the movement by the patient, which can be varied in intensity. The patient is therefore asked to overcome the resistance offered by the aid, and the extent of that resistance is determined by the therapist in relation to the therapeutic goal.

To do the tasks using this kit, coordinated use of both hands is essential.
In this way the pressure of the thumb and index finger oppose the pulp side of the palm. This grip also coordinates the flexing gripping muscles of the first phalanx of the thumb: short flexor, first palm interosseus, and short abductor. The various shapes of the head of the screw varies the degree of ease and stability of the grip.
There is also a two-handed task, in which one hand acts to secure the screw, while the other is involved in a rotation task to tighten / loosen the bolt. This aid has 5 different peg head shapes for various levels of difficulty of gripping using the fingers.
Product Code: AR10024
The tightening / loosening action involves a three-finger grip in which the thumb is positioned to the side, while the phalanx on the middle finger opposes the index finger. The role of counterposing the middle finger to the thumb is reinforced by the support that the third finger gets from the fourth and fifth fingers.
The three different head diameters provide for increasing the complexity of the task. The entire support is made of anti-bacterial polyethylene that is water and UV ray resistant and easy to sterilise. It has 3 head diameters for varying levels of difficulty in gripping for the hand – wrist. The heads, made of polyethylene like the support, can simulate the caps on food jars, a light bulb, gas tap, etc.
Product Code: AR10009
An instrument similar to the horizontal spiral, but different in that this exercise calls for greater involvement of the upper limb.
In addition to prone-supine positioning movements of the forearm on must, in fact, use arm movements that must guide the hand in the twisting movements. The aim of the task is to exercise the upper limb in a complex movement that calls for a good level of skill and fluid movements.
Product Code: AR10011
An aid that is useful for a patient to work independently in order to recover joint function between the interfalanx on the finger and prone-supination.
Executing this task correctly calls for the capacity to open and close the finger, while maintaining a set degree of pronation and supination of the hand. To do this, the subject must combine adequate joint movement and muscular function, with good coordination of hand movements. The aim is to get to know the fine movements of their hands and how to use them better.
This aid provides the possibility of making a small adjustment to the resistance to rotating the bar. This has 2 difference diameters, in order to make it more suited to the type of exercise / patient.
