Hand Contraction Pads
- Important Information
The Hand Contraction Pad has soft padding with a soft interlock material cover. It is used for people with contracted hands. It will help stop skin touching skin, and helps prevent perspiration building up in the palm and between fingers.
There are two versions of this product:
- Hand Contraction Pad – Full Padded (Blue)
- Hand Contraction Pad – Half Padded (White)
The Full Padded version has filling in the main palm section and the finger secitons.
The Half Padded version has a small amount of padding in the palm section, and no padding in the finger sections.
This product is sold as a pair.
Place in the patient’s hand and pull the finger spacer sections fully back between the fingers. Place the thumb around the main body of the pad. The Pad will not cure contractions, but will help keep the hand clean.
Some alternatives to consider are:
