Alimed Dynamic Digit Finger Extensor Tube

brand: ALIMED

Alimed Dynamic Digit Finger Extensor Tube is the better way to reduce PIP and DIP joint finger flexion contractures. This curved, banana-shaped, neoprene tube locates a 30-degree reverse angle under the PIP joint to simulate a spring-like mechanism. It distributes lift along the entire volar surface of the digit. This lift, combined with a constrictive factor at the distal end of the digit, eliminates the harmful pressure commonly experienced with other forms of extension splinting.

Dynamic Digit Finger Extensor Tube Highlights

  • Suitable for flexion contractures up to 80 degrees
  • Provides gentle, even force without splint shifting, misalignment or irritation
  • Effective without being tight
  • Ideal for use with acute injuries and post-surgical repairs of the PIP joints
  • Ideal to offset the PIP flexion in spinal cord injuries C7 or higher
  • For size, measure circumference of the PIP joint
  • Easy to put on

Digit Finger Extensor Tube Features

  • Fights edema
    • Unlike traditional spring and jack-like devices, tube fits snugly around the digit, delivering warmth to help relax tight tendinous structures and remodel scar tissue
    • Circumferential pressure aids in restricting fluid to assist in edema reduction
  • Trim to length
    • The splint is mildly flexible, maintaining joint mobility and some functional use of the digit
    • Can be easily trimmed to length and contoured to fit the web space
  • Easy application
    • Fabric interior makes the tube easy to slip on and adds durability
    • Rubber exterior provides a grip surface to aid in application as well as a functional grip surface during daily activities
  • No pressure points
    • Tube may be worn for longer periods of time compared to other extension splints, due to its gentle force and distribution of pressure over a large area
  • Clinically proven:
    • Clinical tests have demonstrated superior performance compared to other extension devices, even showing success in digits that were unsuccessfully treated by other clinical means


Note: This finger brace contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions
