Point Designs is an innovator in the field of prosthetics. We produce both full finger prosthetics and partial finger prosthetics. Our devices feature a patented, durable, ratcheting mechanism that was developed to improve the independence of patients who have lost one or more fingers (digits 2-5) at or near the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint and for those who have lost one or more partial fingers at or near the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint.
The foundation to all of our products is an innovative improvement to the “conventional” passive prosthesis. The Point Digit (and all sister products) have an elegant and novel ratcheting linkage mechanism resulting in anatomical prosthetic finger flexion.
Unlike body-powered prostheses, which require active muscle contraction to maintain grip, our type of prosthesis relies only on the ratcheting mechanism to lock the finger(s) into the position of your choosing. Our products are designed to have industry leading strength and are made out of 3D-printed titanium, brass, and stainless steel. The Point Digit is sturdy enough to be used in many applications that might damage a myoelectric or cosmetic prosthesis.
Our products are designed to help patients with partial hand amputation obtain greater independence. The Point Digit, Point Partial, and Point Thumb are the first purely mechanical, ratcheting prosthetic digits that can be positioned without using the contralateral side (unilateral operation).
Some of the main features include:
Standardized sizing enables fast delivery (2-3 days in most cases)
Our key focus is ensuring the right fit for every patient and working with the clinical team to achieve a lasting and beneficial solution. That’s why we offer no cost size exchanges throughout the fitting process and prior to device delivery if the initial sizing isn’t correct.
