As shown in the photograph
This particular instrument consist of
- Hand piece and
- Audio visual feedback piece
Hand piece, in turn consist of two distinct parts,
- Pulley system
- Platform for the placement of the hand for exercise
Audio-visual feedback piece was also mounted on the wooden plank with the help of iron rod nut and bolts. This piece consist of a spring balance with minimum calibration of 100 gram and parallel to this was the Audio-visual feedback circuit. Feedback indicator in the form of light and sound was given after the exercising finger achieves every 250 grams of force. While exercising, placement of the forearm of the involved hand was in mid-prone position with 15 to 20 degrees of dorsiflexion, with the help of niwar straps. Depending upon the joint to be moved in the finger i.e. MP, PIP, DIP, the joints were stabilized with the help of padded stabilizing steel rods.
