The Point Digits are mechanical, passive articulating fingers designed to be both lightweight and strong, using a patented, novel ratcheting mechanism to
lock into 11 unique positions of flexion. These 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. Easy to operate, the user positions the finger into one of the 11 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 ways to extend the digit: by pressing the button on the dorsal side of the finger or by fully flexing the finger to engage the auto spring back feature (single-handed use).
