Product Overview

AliMed Inflatable Carrot Finger Orthosis and Accessory Kit

Inflatable Carrot Finger Orthosis is the answer to your toughest hand contracture problems. This orthosis is an inflatable cone-shaped tube covered with velvety bacteriostatic cloth. With the carrot deflated and the cover in place, the orthosis is pulled into the severely contracted hand using a placement wand. Once inserted into the hand, the Carrot can be gradually inflated to reduce even the most severe contracture. Ideal for patients experiencing extreme pain or significant anxiety with splint placement.

Accessory Kit contains two cloth covers, inflator bult, and two wands (one required per Carrot).

Describe Yourself:
Elderly.

I used the product for about 6 months. I worked excellant to open the hand. My wife had soft skin from clenching her hand for so long. By using the carrot her hand dried up and her skin got tougher. It was a real aid for the wound nurse, but over a period of time blisters developed. The cover is too rough for daily removal for wound care. Also the carrot is not long enough to completly fill the cover. This meant that it took extra effort to get the tip of the carrot to the little finger. Also it needs to be skinnier in diameter to get it into smaller hands. The cover needed to be replace daily and there is no option to buy more covers without getting the kit. Recommend using a softer material to prevent blistering from inserting and removing the carrot. In my case it had to be removed and inserted daily for wound care and cleaning. Keep the carrot diameter the same near the valve but make it longer and skinnier so all fingers are over the carrot. The carrot eventually leaked at the seam near the valve. However, it did work great getting her hand open and after about 15 minutes her hand stayed open for a small period of time so her hand could be cleaned.
