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.

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: 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: AR10008
The aid exercises the subject in prone-supine positioning hand movements. Specifically, the subject is asked to keep the ball between the first three fingers on the hand and guide it over the sinusoidal path. This exercise means that the large prono-supine positioning joints in the forearm are used to the maximum.
It is therefore useful to monitor the patients behaviour while executing this task. Any incapacity to explore the maximum levels of supine positioning could be compensated for by bending the trunk on one side, while limitation of prone positioning will cause early and excessive movement of the arm away from the trunk.
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: AR10021
Good eye-hand coordination is required to insert the buckle. To tension the parts once inserted, a sub termino-lateral grip is used. The palm face of the thumbs rests on the outer face of the first phalanx on the index finger. The muscles that stabilize the grip are the first dorsal interosseous, that acts on the index finger, the short flexor, the first palm interosseous and abductor of the thumb.
This aid has a clip belt buckle on the one side that can be altered in length, and an end complete with zip that can be opened. The clip belt buckle also requires good coordination and significant force has to be applied by the thumb, opposing the index finger to clip the fixing device in place.
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: 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: 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.
