The Carrot Hand Contracture Orthosis Story
No more prying contracted fingers open to scrub hands or wrestling to get hand splints in place. The AliMed Carrot Hand Contracture Orthosis gently opens the hand gradually enough to allow access for better hygiene and easier positioning for traditional hand splints. The kits include AliMed’s “Magic Wand” placement tool which is key to the Carrot’s success. The small, flexible magic wand secures to the loop end of any of the carrot to provide access to the hand without opening it. The carrot can then be gradually and painlessly introduced into the contracted hand.
