Agee Digit Widget Hand Biomechanics

Content Contributor

The Agee Digit Widget® was designed to apply the force needed to reverse the contractures directly through the skeleton. The extension torque is limited to the PIPJ and respects adjacent joints. There is also an avoidance of skin pressure due to the nature of being an external fixator. The dynamic nature of the device allows active flexion at the PIPJ, encouraging functional use of the hand during treatment. The amount of extension torque can be adjusted with rubber bands, to balance treatment and avoid complications such as joint inflammation.
