Product Code: AR10017
Made up of a window handle (180° rotation about a central pin) and door handle (90° rotation about a pin to one side).
Depending on how the aid is positioned on the wall panel, the latter can be used with the right or left hand.
Product Code: AR10016
To activate the switch, the finger must be positioned on the correct half of the button. This task can also be done using two fingers. To do a rhythmic alternating movement, selectivity is required in calling on the two fingers to flex in succession.
Inserting a plug in a socket is a task that calls for attention, coordination and evaluation of the force to do so safely. The patient must grip the two elements firmly in their hands and connect them to one another.
Product Code: AR10015
A sliding latch (element on the left in the photo): due to this instruments size, the patient has to have a fine grip using the first three fingers. Also they must associate a small movement in the vertical plane to free the latch and move it along the horizontal plane. The patient can also be asked to do this task without using the visual channel, which means that they must rely on tactile-kinaesthetic information.
A turning handle (shown on the right in the photo): in this case the grip involves control with the thumb and side of the second finger. A supination and pronation rotating force is required to turn the handle.
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.
Product Code: AR10010
This aid involves work on the horizontal plane. The elbow bends and extends to reach the curves on the flexible element. Inclined radial / ulnar movements are required to get past them. Positioning on a vertical panel: in this case the instrument lies on the vertical plane.
This instrument is therefore similar to the vertical spiral, but differs in that positioning it at various heights and working in an upright position, obliges the subject to achieve greater bending and extension of the arm.
Dimensions: (cm) 39.5 x 29 x 10 h
Weight: 1.8 kg
Product Code: AR10023
This aid is made to allow patients to exercise using slalom tasks between the pegs, following a sequence determined by the therapist on each occasion. Precision and coordination of movements is required to keep the elastic cord taut and to guide it during the exercise. The ring facilitates holding it.
The unit has 5 plastic pegs. One of these is used to hold the end of the elastic to be guided as indicated by the therapist.
Product Code: AR10020
Positioned on a table: In this position the task is made easier than when positioned vertically, due to the fact that the patient is not tired out by having to keep their arms raised and stabilised during the task.
Positioned on a vertical panel: To do these tasks, applying pressure by opposing endings is essential. This grip is finer and more precise because it makes it possible to hold an object securely. The thumb opposes the pulp side end of the end of the index finger, gripping the lace and the prone supination movements of the forearm, associated with flexing the wrist, make it possible to do the task and threading the lace through the various holes. For both these tasks the side of the hand acts to stabilize the object, and good coordination is essential to complete the tasks.
Bear in mind that even a minor injury that damages these articular areas can compromise this pincer grip – in fact, complete passive articular control of the distal IF on the second finger is required as well as stability of the deep flexor and synchronized activation of the long flexor in the thumb. On one side this aid has laces with holes and eyelets (closed rings), and on the other laces hooked in an oblique direction by chromed hooks, both of which are found on many types of footwear.
Product Code: AR10019
With regards the aid with the four press studs, significant pressure force is required from the tip of the first finger. The Trapeziometacarpal joint must be kept in the most suitable position between the bone ends, by the action of the intrinsic muscles that contract to stabilize the joint. The aim is to reduce radial dislocation of the metacarpal while applying force with the thumb, because this is a cause of pain for rhizoid arthritis pathologies.
As regards the task of doing up buttons, greater precision and independent action by each finger is essential. The thumb uses the pulp part to oppose the index and middle fingers, to tilt the button and push it into the button hole. Incorrect terminal opposition makes this task impossible, due to the shape of the object. The aid comprises 4 press studs on the one side and 4 buttons like those found on many items of clothing on the other side.
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.
