When hand therapists make orthoses, we try to blend the art and science needed to meet the client’s needs. Too often, however, therapists rely on methods that take too much time and don’t add value to the patient.

This video will teach you how to make one of therapy’s most common orthoses in two efficient methods. First, you’ll learn a simple pattern using bony landmarks. Next, we’ll cover a faster and more efficient approach using the “Tag and Stretch” method. Make the most of your fabrication time so you can spend more time on client interaction and quality of care.
