Hand shrink-processing glove


The "shrink-processing glove" is a hand glove where each finger is surrounded by rings sized according to the patient's finger, and each ring is then wrapped with a solid iron thread, with the ends of the thread tied to the first and the last rings that are joined together by a small concave-shape piece of iron. A rectangular piece of plastic on the outer side of the hand palm, with inlets of varying degrees to enter the small piece of iron in them. The inlets to be used are determined according to the degree of contraction. Also, there is another piece above the wrist connected to the first piece with three threads to help tighten the glove. The glove may be used by an electronic application on the patient's cellphone to know its shrinking degree and the remaining period of healing from shrinking.
