Static Splinting Series
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4063Level: Intermediate4 Hours
The static splinting 4-course series consists of an overview of the history of splint fabrication, the advances in the splinting and orthotics arena, and an anatomical review of key structures and landmarks. A detailed demonstration of wrist orthotics is presented as well as radial gutter/thumb spica splints, dorsal and volar wrist cock-ups, functional position with an intrinsic plus modification option, hand-based thumb spica, finger gutter and MP joint blocking splints. The application and use of a spring finger extension splint, oval 8 splints as well as static progressive finger flexion and extension splints are included.Finally, the fabrication of a footplate for external fixator application, the application of lower extremity splints and orthotics as well as splinting considerations for specific diagnoses including burn injury occurs in part 4.

Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #4018, #4020, #4022, and #4024

Dynamic Splinting Series: Splinting for Elbow and Wrist Function
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4057Level: Intermediate4 Hours
The dynamic splinting 4-course series consists of foundational knowledge of dynamic splinting and the examination of methods associated with fabricating and/or implementing dynamic wrist splints for the management of wrist, elbow, and forearm range of motion, support, and joint protection needs. Methods and applications are discussed for use with clients who present with long-term dynamic splinting needs as well as benefits and inherent risks associated with the application of dynamic splinting in conjunction with specific population groups are covered in the final course of the series.

Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #4026, #4038, #4049, and #4051

Dynamic Splinting: Building the Foundation for Success, Part 1
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4025Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Following a brief anatomical review of hand structures in order to ensure understanding of the theory, purpose, and methods behind many dynamic splint designs, Dr. Davin offers a comparison of the qualities of static splinting as compared to dynamic splinting. An overview of various dynamic splinting options is introduced and serves to build foundational knowledge as it relates to dynamic splinting in preparation for upcoming courses within this series.

Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Dynamic Splinting Series: Splinting for Elbow and Wrist Function" course 4057, which is offered for 4 CEUs.

Anatomy and Treatment Guidelines for Extensor Tendons of the Hand
Presented by Lisa Michael, OTD, OTR/L, CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4027Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will review the extensor tendon anatomy and the various contribution of extrinsic and intrinsic muscles to the extensor tendon mechanism. A brief overview and rationale for the utilization of immobilization, early passive motion, or early active motion protocols for each of the extensor tendon zones will be described. **Please have a tight-fitting glove and 4 markers for the demonstration portion of the talk. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA

Taping for Shoulder Conditions
Presented by Ann Marie Feretti, EdD, OTR/L, CHT, Irene Lee, PT, DPT, SCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3928Level: Advanced4 Hours
Master skills to implement in your practice immediately with continued PT Master Class. This course builds on the clinician’s experience evaluating patients with shoulder conditions and introduces kinesiology taping as an intervention with a variety of uses in the clinic. Participants can use learned skills immediately to decrease pain and improve function with the use of taping for shoulder conditions.

Successful Static Splinting: Fabrication for Specific Diagnoses, Part 4
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4023Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Types of pre-cut, pre-formed and sheet-based splint fabrication techniques are explored as well as instruction on the fabrication of a foot plate for external fixator application, the application of lower extremity splints and orthotics as well as splinting considerations for specific diagnoses including burn injury. A focus on creative splinting techniques is emphasized. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Static Splinting Series" course 4063, which is offered for 4 CEUs.
