Our Rotatable Mounting Solution 

IMG_8606 (1)

The Point Pivot is a rotatable mounting system that provides an additional degree of freedom to the Point Thumb. Though it is intended for use with the Point Thumb, the Point Pivot is compatible with the Point Digit, Point Digit mini, and Point Partial.

The Point Pivot is designed for people who have thumb amputations slightly proximal of the metacarpal phalangeal (MCP) joint, desire a more dynamic prosthetic thumb, and aren't candidates for the Point Pivot+.

The Point Pivot is a heavy-duty, passive device with a robust construction. It empowers people with significant thumb loss by giving them more mobility, function, and independence.

The Point Pivot is intended to be used with the Point Thumb and replaces the standard mounting kit. However, you do not need to use the Point Pivot in order to use the Point Thumb, it is simply an additional device that adds more function to the Point Thumb for patients with higher level thumb amputations.

The Point Pivot and the Point Thumb (and their associated mounting kits) are sold separately.


Compact vs. Extended Diagram

The Point Pivot comes in two configurations: Compact and Extended. By default the Point Pivot is provided in the Compact configuration, which is designed for integration with new sockets.

The Extended configuration can be provided upon request. The Extended configuration is directly compatible with existing sockets where a Point Thumb was previously mounted.

The Point Pivot is made of titanium and stainless steel, and comes with all necessary hardware for integration into a prosthetic socket. A semi-hollow titanium construction ensures a high strength-to-weight ratio.

The main features of the Point Pivot include:

  • Can be mounted in the neutral, pre-flexed, or pre-extended positions
  • 150 lb (68 kg) load capacity
  • 0.43 oz - 0.51 oz (12.2 g - 14.5g) in weight 
  • Robust rotation mechanism with 18 locking positions
  • Fast delivery (2 days)

To operate the Point Pivot, the user rotates the device by applying a downward force and rotating the attached digit into one of eighteen locking positions. When the digit is released, the device will automatically lock into place.
