Course Details

This basic, intermediate and advanced level splinting workshop focuses on the importance of splinting in various upper extremity conditions.  The course is designed to enhance the understanding of splinting principles and hands on fabrication experience in handling different thermoplastics, and hardware.  The presentation focuses on diagnoses specific assessment of the hand and management of various conditions by means of splinting. The “Splinting 101” course is designed to focus on static splints for simpler diagnoses. Whereas, “Splinting 102” focuses on other complex injuries requiring either dynamic or static progressive splinting and components.


Course Objectives: Splinting 101
