Resting splint

Resting splintA lady with multiple sclerosis had recently had a stroke leaving weakness in her left arm with shortening of her muscles affecting her left hand and wrist. She needed a “Resting Splint” to help her exercise and regain control.

A splint was made from scrap material and consisted of an upholstered hinged splint that could be preset for angle (to assist in the required duration of the wrist bent at the current required angle.) and three tape clamps to hold the arm and wrist in position. The unit was attached to her wheelchair armrest.

She could carry out the required arm/wrist position at her leisure when in her wheelchair. When not required the unit could be removed and the wheelchair was unaffected.
