How to use HeberLoop

HeberLoop allows you to adjust the range of motion of the joint by changing the orientation of the loop.

With the adjuster located at your finger's belly, only the side of the joint is fixed and the fingers can be flexed.

With the adjuster located at the back of your finger, the movement of the joint is completely fixed and the fingers are no longer bent.
