The FingerShield is a woven polyester sleeve with an embedded radiopaque blue marker designed to reduce pressure induced lacerations to the digits of the hand caused by repetitive knot tying during surgery. They slip right over sterile gloves when needed. The tips are left open to allow pinch grasp of suture strands, while still protecting the IP joint area of each digit. The soft, finger-conforming weave will stand up to repetitive hand tying during a case without constraining the fingers. Suture slides over the FingerShield smoothly and effortlessly.
