What is Spastic Hand?
Spasticity is a form of hypertonia, or increased muscle tone. This results in stiff muscles which can make movement difficult or even impossible.
Muscles appear stiff because the messages to the muscles are sent incorrectly through the damaged part of the brain
When a muscle is affected by spasticity, the faster the limb is moved, the stiffer it seems
Spasticity is seen in a number of different conditions including cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke and multiple sclerosis
People may have difficulty moving from one position to another and controlling individual muscles or muscle groups needed for performing certain tasks like handling objects or speaking

Can determine the position of each finger by adjusting the strap tension
Reversible soft touch velcro straps allow the user to reinforce their grip on objects during functional grasp activities
The exposed palm design is applied to increase breathability and to make it easier to put on/take off.
