Carrot™ Hand Contracture Orthoses

The AliMed® Carrot Orthosis System gently opens the hand to allow access for better hygiene and easier positioning for traditional hand splints. The Original Carrot treats moderate-to severe contractions. The Antimicrobial-Treated Carrot helps reduce odor-causing bacteria. For the most severely contracted hands, choose the Inflatable Carrot. The key to the Carrot's success is the convenient Magic Wand placement tool for easy access to the hand without opening the fingers.

The Carrot Story

No more prying contracted fingers open to clean the hand or wrestling to get splints in place. The AliMed Carrot Orthosis System gently opens the hand gradually to allow access for better hygiene and easier positioning for traditional hand splints. The clearly numbered markings and graduated shape provide caregivers a way to accurately measure a patient’s progress.

For the most severely contracted hands, choose the Inflatable Carrot. When deflated, it can be pulled through a clenched fist. As it is gently, partially inflated with the bulb supplied, the contracture is stretched and relaxed as the air is added. This way, the progressive contracture reduction continues without pain or trauma to the patient.

The "Magic Wand"

The key to the Carrot’s success is the convenient Magic Wand placement tool. The small, flexible plastic wand secures to the loop at the end of the three Carrots for access to the hand without opening the fingers. Once the wand is inserted, the orthosis is introduced gradually, painlessly, and pulled further into the hand as the contracture relaxes.
