The Point Partial is a mechanical, passive articulating prosthetic finger designed to be both lightweight and strong, using a patented, novel ratcheting mechanism to lock into 7 unique positions of flexion. The Point Partial was designed to meet the needs of individuals with partial finger amputation.
Point Designs' prosthetic fingers are designed for patients with finger loss who require a durable device and the ability for one-handed operation and various levels of flexion. The prosthesis is made of titanium and stainless steel, and comes with all necessary hardware for integration into a prosthetic socket.
We all use our hands for a wide range of activities every day without even thinking about it. However, those who have had partial finger amputation can find even the most basic tasks difficult. It can be very hard to adapt after the loss of a partial finger. Losing even one finger can affect the other intact fingers, and amputation can cause intolerance to cold and hypersensitivity. Not only does partial finger amputation involve physical loss, but it can cause psychological challenges as well.
Each finger fitting requires 1 mounting bracket
Lamination spacers and mounting hardware included
Alignment tools included
Allows dynamic fitting between fingers
Our partial finger prosthesis is designed for people who have lost one or more partial fingers at or near the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. It is a mechanical, passive device with a robust construction. The Point Partial empowers people with partial finger amputation by giving them more mobility, function, and independence.
Our partial finger prosthesis is made from semi-hollow high-strength metal, which guarantees a high strength to weight ratio. Thanks to its ratcheting mechanism and linkage bars, it can be locked into various levels of flexion. Also, the device can be adjusted with the simple touch of a button or by using the spring-loaded release mechanism.
At Point Designs, we do everything we can to ensure functional success for people who have had partial hand amputations. We focus on building durable, reliable prosthetic devices that take into account the needs of patients and prosthetists.
The main features of the Point Partial include:
To operate the Point Partial, the user positions the finger into one of the locking levels of flexion by pushing the dorsal side against an opposing surface (e.g., table, thigh, etc.). The device locks into place automatically, enabling the individual to perform their desired task.
There are two methods to extend the digit:
1) by pressing the button on the dorsal side of the finger
2) by fully flexing the finger to engage the auto spring back feature (single-handed use)
