More About This Product
AliMed® Antimicrobial Blue Carrot Hand Contracture Kit solves the toughest hand contracture problems while inhibiting microbial growth on the carrot’s surface. The Blue Carrot's soft covering is permanently embedded with Agion® antimicrobial to act as a barrier against bacteria, viruses and fungi.
AliMed Carrot Hand Contracture Treatments:
This version of the AliMed Carrot Hand Contracture Kit comes with everything you need to treat hand contractures while also helping to prevent hand infections and unpleasant odors.
Simply slide the carrot's thin "Magic Wand" through the patient's contracted hand and then pull the carrot through—much less painful when compared to anxiety-producing hand splint placement. The carrot is labeled with numbers, making documentation standardized and easy. The hand contracture carrot is filled with tiny plastic microspheres that are highly conforming and resilient so the orthosis won't increase spasticity.

2 Blue Carrots treated with
2 Magic Wands to easily thread the carrot into place in the contracted hand
1 laundry marker to track hand contracture progress
One size: 9"L; 5-1/2" maximum circumference
Cotton cover embedded with silver ion
Hand wash in cold water and air dry.

No more prying contracted fingers open to scrub the hand or wrestling to get hand splints in place. The AliMed Carrot Orthosis System gently opens the hand gradually enough to allow access for better hygiene and easier positioning for traditional hand splints. Clearly numbered markings and the graduated carrot shape provide caregivers a way to accurately measure a patient's progress for assured reimbursement.
The "Magic Wand"
placement tool is a key to the Carrot's success. The small, flexible plastic wand secures to the loop end of any of the three Hand Contracture Carrots for access to the hand without opening the fingers. Once the wand is inserted, the carrot is introduced gradually and painlessly into the contracted hand. The carrot can then be pulled further into the hand as the hand contracture relaxes.
