Hand Contraction Pads
$31.00 AUD – $46.00 AUD
- Important Information
The Hand Contraction Pads are padded with a soft material cover. They are for people with contracted hands, as they will help stop skin touching skin, and they help prevent perspiration building up in the palm and between the fingers.
There are four versions of this product:
- Hand Contraction Pad – Half Padded (White)
- Hand Contraction Pad – Half Padded – With Strap (White)
- Hand Contraction Pad – Fully Padded (Blue)
- Hand Contraction Pad – Fully Padded – With Strap (Blue)
The Fully Padded version has filling in the main palm section and the finger sections.
The Half Padded version has a small amount of padding in the palm section, and no padding in the finger sections.
An option is to have a Strap with Hook & Loop Tape added which wraps around the hand in case it is dropped. This is a Made to Order option, and you can select it from the drop down box.
When you purchase the Hand Contraction Pads, you get 2 – one for each hand.
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.
