More About This Product
AliMed® Antimicrobial-Treated Blue Carrot Hand Contracture Orthosis Kit painlessly positions the fingers away from the palm to protect the skin from excessive moisture, pressure, and the risk of nail puncture injuries while helping to prevent bacteria build up and unpleasant odors. The soft cotton covering is permanently infused with silver ion that inhibits the growth and replication of bacteria, mold, yeast, and other fungi that cause odor, staining, and discoloration. Filled with highly conforming and resilient tiny plastic microspheres that won’t increase spasticity—effective even for significantly distorted hands. Graduated markings on the cover accurately measure and document patient’s progress. Hand-wash in cold water and let air-dry.
How it works: Secure the included “Magic Wand” to the loop at the end of the Carrot and gently pull wand through contracted hand to draw Carrot into place.
One size: 9"L, 5-1/2" maximum circumference

2 Antimicrobial-Treated Blue Carrots

The AliMed Carrot Story
Developed more than 20 years ago, the AliMed Carrot Hand Contracture Orthosis with its tapered shape and unique “Magic Wand” is an innovative device that offers painless positioning of severely contracted hands for better patient comfort and easier caregiving. Unlike traditional orthotic devices that require forceful application to pry hands open, the Carrot is designed to be gently inserted into the hand and drawn into place with the use of a plastic wand without causing discomfort. This gives caregivers easier access to the hand for better hygiene and reduced infection risk while graduated markings on the cover accurately measure and document your patient’s progress.
