The palm of each Mitt is filled with machine washable fiber fill and the mitts secure with a hook and loop strap. Connect straps are included to limit range of motion, if necessary. Available in both open (POS2815) and closed (POS2816) end versions. Open end version accomodates pulse oximeter probes. Closed end version is covered with a mesh back to facilitate skin checks. Adult size; fits either hand.

An article on rnweb.com entitled "New hope for stroke patients,"* discussed the benefits of a new type of neuro-rehabilitation therapy for stroke victims. Pioneered by Edward Taub, a psychology professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), the technique called constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT)** encourages stroke patients to use their affected limb by constricting the unaffected limb with a mitt. By using the affected limb, stroke patients can begin to regain and restore motor function.

Good product
I used this for my mother, who is brain damaged from enchaphalitis. She is constantly scratching and tearing at her skin, primarily on her face. The mitts stopped the behavior and actually seemed to calm her down.

Great product, just took a while to receive due to the prescription issues
These open end mitts are not made of mesh (hand side), and they allow fingers to peep through at the ends, allowing one to see fingers. They are also washable. Good product, just took a while to receive due to the prescription issues. I ordered and emailed them immediately afterwards with the prescription, took about 2 weeks before someone contacted me requesting the prescription to be emailed again. It would be better to receive the "confirmation" email after the prescription has been reviewed by the company.

posey finger control mitts the webing for the fingers does not contain fingers
I like the pillow concept but I worry about the strap and tightness around the wrist in order so it does not allow the hand come out. I also can not keep the fingers in the finger slots of the mitt.
