Bend / Dynamic Traction Split


Bend is a non-intrusive Dynamic Traction Splint for Proximal Interphalangeal Joint fractures and dislocation.

The strategic cuts along the splint creates a spring-like behavior that generates the traction force needed and providing sufficient bending of the finger for better recovery.

It’s lifestyle-friendly aesthetics removes the negative social stigma towards current medical splint, which
encourages the consistency of use, thus ensuring the effectiveness of the treatment.
