»handscupe®« is a novel type of ergonomically-shaped medical hand support, which serves for the positioning of hands that require positioning due to pathological symptoms.
The name is derived from the English terms »hand«, »shape«, and »curve«. handscupe® can support the treatment of symptoms caused by rheumatism or paresis, for example. By this means, pain can be alleviated, and mobility can be improved.
The use of handscupe® in physiotherapy or occupational therapy can have a sustained positive impact on therapy outcome.
We have taken the time to develop a therapeutic positioning device for hands that gives them the appreciation they deserve.
In a demanding development process over three years, the shape of the handscupe® was modelled based on the anatomical resting position of the human hand.
handscupe® has been designed for persons with impairments due to rheumatism or paresis, e.g. due to rheumatic diseases or paretic symptoms of the hand, such as spasms or contractures.
The unique design of the handscupe® enables the ergonomic, therapeutic positioning and valuable treatment support for impaired hands.
handscupe® addresses the specific needs and requirements for the relaxed positioning and activation of impaired hands. handscupe® provides the users with the opportunity to actively and sustainably support their therapy or physiotherapeutic measures.
The unique design of the handscupe® with its double-wall structure allows for the ergonomic, therapeutic positioning and valuable treatment support of impaired hands.
handscupe® allows for the neutral, functional, and relaxed positioning of the fingers and hand. The ergonomically-shaped resting surface adapts perfectly to the shape of the hand and ensures appropriate therapeutic positioning. Thanks to the finger moulds, the fingers gently glide over the velvet-like surface into the correct anatomical position. The metacarpal area is supported by the bulge of handscupe®. The entire hand can rest in an optimal position. handscupe® can be used easily, safely, and comfortably in both a clinical environment and the patient’s home.
