Fabric Lined Splint


The Fabric lined splint is a very useful splint for those fragile, sore or swollen hands. Here I have used some soft strapping - Durawrap/Mafra, which conforms well around the hand and also helps reduce any swelling. Over the wrist I have used Microgrip, which is an elastic, soft strapping, which would be confortably for the client to wear.


Here is a tutorial on how to make this splint, as presented at the New Zealand Hand Therapy Conference 2015.
