This is a 2-day workshop, designed for those already comfortable with fabrication of basic static splints, and looking to advance their skills.
This course has changed over the years, in response to changes in surgeries, treatment approaches, protocols etc, so that every splint taught on this course will be a splint that you may be requested to make in your day-to-day practice as a hand therapist.
It is a practical, interactive two-day workshop, designed to give all participants a good understanding of the theory, biomechanics and principles of static progressive and dynamic splinting and know how to apply these to their Hand Therapy practice.
