Abstract

With this hinge, active elbow extension was used to exercise the transferred tendon, while simultaneously protecting it. The splint enabled the therapist to accomplish these goals: exercise and protection. Therapists' concerns, of course, extend beyond splint construction; throughout the patient's hospital course the patient received therapy in range of motion, skin care, muscle strengthening, training to improve activities in daily living, as well as emotional preparation to facilitate use of the tendon transfer.
