The Point Pivot+ is a dynamic mounting system that provides additional degrees of freedom to the Point Thumb. It is a heavy-duty, passive device with a robust construction that empowers people with significant thumb loss by giving them more mobility, function, and independence.
The Point Pivot+ is intended to be used with the Point Thumb and replaces the standard mounting kit. However, you do not need to use the Point Pivot+ in order to use the Point Thumb, it is simply an additional device that adds more function to the Point Thumb for patients with higher level thumb amputations.
The Point Pivot+ and the Point Thumb (and their associated mounting kits) are sold separately.
Used in place of the standard mounting system for the Point Thumb, the Point Pivot+ provides many functional benefits to the patient. It allows the Point Thumb to be moved from an oppositional position to a lateral position. Additionally, it enables rotation of the plane that the Point Thumb flexes and extends in, allowing for a greater number of achievable hand grasps.
The Point Pivot+ is made of titanium and stainless steel, and comes with all necessary hardware for integration into a prosthetic socket. A semi-hollow titanium construction ensures a high strength-to-weight ratio. The Point Pivot+ designed for people who have near carpometacarpal (CMC) level amputations of the thumb.
The main features of the Point Pivot+ include:
To operate the Point Pivot+, the user has two different modes of operation to choose from: adduction/abduction and rotation.
Adduction/Abduction: User moves the Point Pivot+ into one of 19 locking positions by pressing the paddle opposite the desired direction of motion and pushing the carriage. When the paddle is released, the device will automatically lock into place.
Rotation: User rotates the Point Pivot+ by applying a downward force and rotating the attached digit into one of three locking positions. When the digit is released, the device will automatically lock into place.
Each Point Pivot+ fitting requires 2 mounting brackets
Lamination spacer and mounting hardware included
