Advanced Orthosis Fabrication (Splinting)

Volardorsal Pip Splint

Volar and Dorsal Pip Splint

This workshop is for the intermediate-advanced orthosis fabricator (splinter) (OT, PT, CHT) who is already fabricating dynamic/mobilization orthoses (splints). Learn quick and effective, cost-saving tricks including how to combine dynamic and static-progressive components on one orthosis (splint) OR how to combine flexion and extension on one orthosis (splint)! Make an orthosis (splint) with the cobra/clikstrip system. Play with several different thermoplastics and thermotubes.

Get out of your orthotic fabrication(splinting) rut with this workshop! Have hours of fabrication time with the chance for you to direct your learning experience! Variations of the orthoses (splints) listed below will be available as directed by the group! The maximum class size is 6.
