There is no reliable evidence to support the use of hand splints as a therapeutic modality in isolation of other intervention approaches [ 13 ]. The evidence base regarding therapeutic interventions for children with cerebral palsy is comparatively larger than in other diagnostic groups. The evidence to support task-specific training in brain injury, and other typographies of cerebral palsy, is limited, although theorists expect similar results are possible. New to this edition is coverage of polytrauma, advances in prosthetics and assistive technologies, and assessment and interventions of traumatic brain injury problems related to cognitive and visual perception. Whilst other approaches are based around motor learning theories of repetitive task practice, CO-OP differs in that it is centred first around the child learning the global cognitive strategy of goal-plan-do-check. Some assert that a functional splint will improve movement and hand use immediately when the child dons the splint within everyday hand function activities [ 18 ].
Brain injury in children is a brain insult acquired in the post neonatal period, although there is no defined lower age limit [ 1 ]. Principles of dynamic, serial static, and static progressive splinting both theory and application are presented along with practical fabrication concepts.

Task or activity specific in which the child actively, rather than passively participates. Some women with descending perineum apply gentle upwards counterpressure to the perineum for additional support during bowel emptying. The comprehensive course manual contains over 30 life sized patterns which are available exclusively at this course! When Is Splinting Used? Despite brain injury being recognised as one of the leading causes of long-term disability in children and young adults, there is a recognised lack of evidence for this population [ 12 ].

There are two primary types of upper limb splints, whose purpose may be defined according to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF model [ 16 ]. Parent involvement was recognised as an important factor in success [ 37 ].
Motivation for participation and practice in CO-OP is addressed only through goal setting and thus inclusion of individually meaningful task practice [ 2932 ]. These books are organized by topic area, particular emphasis should be placed on the general textbooks.
When is pelvic floor splinting used? High dose although optimal dose is unclear especially for those with brain injury or non-hemiplegic cerebral palsy. Descending Perineum Descending perineum is a condition where the pelvic floor tissues are stretched and lax.
Information on prevention is incorporated throughout the book, especially in the Habits on Health and Wellness chapter. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. HTCC's self-assessment module can be downloaded as a pdf here.
Whilst there does not yet exist extensive evidence regarding the use of CO-OP in cerebral palsy and brain injury, the theoretical foundations underpinning the CO-OP approach are consistent with interventions proven to be effective in this population [ 7253940 ].
This condition causes the perineum to move downwards with the pressure of bowel emptying. The evidence to support task-specific training in brain injury, and other typographies of cerebral palsy, is limited, although theorists expect similar results are possible.
Each item must be verified in at least one source. A functional hand splint is designed to improve use of the hand, and in doing so, takes into consideration not only the underlying biomechanical components on the hand, but also directly addresses the goals and preferences of the person wearing the splint [ 17 ].
Deep space infections of the hands or feet, as well as cellulitis over any joint, should similarly be immobilized for comfort. Also, candidates are encouraged to study the test blueprint to see what areas are emphasized on the exam.
Candidates are advised to look over the references and concentrate on the areas where they feel weak. Immobilization decreases blood loss, minimizes the potential for further neurovascular injury, reduces the need for opioid analgesia, and may decrease the risk for fat emboli from long-bone fractures.
Some women with descending perineum apply gentle upwards counterpressure to the perineum for additional support during bowel emptying. Others assert that it takes longer to train the child to use the hand efficiently and that the splint should be worn during this training period to help shape the desired hand movements required for function [ 1541 ].
You should not rely on one source or text solely. Splinting large abrasions that cross joint surfaces prevents movement of the injured extremity and reduces the pain produced when the injured skin is stretched.
