Hands On Orthotics - Static Progressive Orthoses
This pre-conference is presented by the ASHT Education Division Hands On Orthotics Committee. Two static progressive orthoses will be fabricated. The first will improve wrist extension, and the second will provide a hand-based option to improve PIP flexion. Background information will be offered with online resources. A materials list is provided and it is recommended that the participant fabricate along with the instructor on a friend or family member to maximize learning through the fabrication process.
Demonstrate fabrication of static progressive orthoses to improve wrist and hand function.
Demonstrate how to modify orthoses based on improvements in motion.
Describe indications for static progressive orthoses.
