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.

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.
Product Code: AR10012
The patient puts their forearm into a support that holds it in place. The fingers are connected to the elastics by means of fixings put over the fingers like rings.
A sliding adjustable system makes it possible to keep the optimum 90° angle between the phalanxes and the elastics. The tension in the elastics keeps the fingers flexing muscles extended, changing the passive rigidity over time. Exercises can be done with concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions by the flexing muscles.
The supports are chromed metal, while the finger inserts are atoxic imitation leather, and both the length and resistance can be adjusted in each individual finger elastic.
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: 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: 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: 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: 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: AR10022
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.
