EMPOWERING YOUNG BURN SURVIVORS TO REJOIN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

The HandHero Splint

HandHero is an innovative, low-cost medical device that prevents contracture on post-surgery burn patients with hand injuries. It is an orthotic device that is worn by the patient for six months to one year after surgery, and is progressively straightened by the patient at home until full range of motion is achieved, requiring minimal in-person visits with a physical therapist. The HandHero splint works by applying static pressure to the fingers of a contracted hand to gently stretch the tendons and muscles back to a functional state.
