The Hand-E™ short-term hand holder was designed by a Minnesota EMT after realizing there was no device that would help the first responder maintain control of a nonresponsive patient's arms once placed on a spine board. The hands and arms tended to fall off the board making it extremely difficult to navigate through tight areas and/or doorways. Necessity is the mother of invention. And the Hand-E™ is the invention of necessity.
The Hand-E™ short-term hand holder incorporates a one piece polyethylene main body and a Rubber Retainer.
The main body is designed for easy cleaning, light weight, durability, and smooth edges.
There is a slot on the back of the main body that can be slid onto a strap near the patient's waist, to keep the device and the patient's arms from pulling toward the head.
On each end of the device there is a series of notches to seat the Rubber Retainer into. The Rubber Retainer can be moved to lower notches to accommodate smaller wrists.
On the foot end of the device there is a clip to retain the Rubber Retainer. The wrist slots accommodate most wrist sizes. Larger wrists are placed sideways into the slots, ulnar side first. Smaller wrists are placed flat, with the palms towards the body.
