Summary This new resource instructs students and clinicians in splint fabrication techniques and related interventions for the upper extremity, and highlights anatomical and biomechanical principles specifically related to splints. It defines the purpose of splints, and offers associated indications and precautions. Intelligently organized and generously illustrated, each chapter includes clinical hints, and a specific section dedicated to splinting for a spectrum of diagnoses and populations. Indexes provide a user-friendly cross-reference that lists splints by name and splints by diagnosis to assist the reader in usage of the manual. Also provides insight into the clinical experience with emphasis on containing cost while maximizing time efficiency.
