A revolutionary Dynamic Traction Split for Proximal Interphalangeal Joint fractures and dislocation.
Bend was created as we saw the need to create a more effective and lifestyle friendly dynamic traction splint. Bend is not just more effective, it is easier to use and has the possibility of being more affordable compared to any other current practices in the medical field. Bend’s sleek and simple form is more than just surface aesthetics, it is the mechanism itself that will create the traction force that is needed and also allowing the finger to move while using bend.
