Description:
The hand is one of the most complex pieces of natural engineering in the human body. Keeping it functional is a very worthwhile cause and a high priority. The program will start out with a review of the anatomy of the wrist/hand complex. We will review orthopedic related wrist/hand issues and determine the correct orthotic interventions. Then our focus will shift to the post-stroke hand, the challenges it presents and the goals of keeping or making it functional again. Finally, we will look at a resting hand splint that has the potential to optimize compliance and functional outcomes....
