Successful Static Splinting: Foundations, Part 1
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Live WebinarTue, Jul 7, 2020 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #4768Level: Introductory1 Hour
Following a brief overview of the history of splint fabrication and the advances in the splinting and orthotics arena, an anatomical review of hand structures and landmarks will be performed. Types of splints as well as the variety in thermoplastic materials and characteristics will be presented in preparation for additional courses within this series. This course is Part 1 of a 4-part series on static splinting.

Successful Static Splinting: Forearm Based Splint Fabrication, Part 2
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Live WebinarWed, Jul 22, 2020 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #4785Level: Intermediate1 Hour
In this course, types of pre-cut, pre-formed and sheet-based splint fabrication techniques are explored as well as a comparison between volar and dorsal-based approaches. A detailed demonstration of four types of forearm-based wrist orthotics are presented, including radial gutter/thumb spica splints, dorsal and volar wrist cock-ups, and functional position with an intrinsic plus modification option. This course is Part 2 of a 4-part series on static splinting.

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and the OT Role
Presented by Cameron Van Oort, BSc, MSc, MScOT, CHT
Live WebinarTue, Jul 28, 2020 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #4754Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course is meant to give an overview of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Furthermore, the goal is to assist occupational therapists in understanding and treating children with this heterogeneous condition.

Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Live WebinarThu, Aug 6, 2020 at 3:00 pm EDT
Course: #4814Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Types of pre-cut, pre-formed and sheet-based splint fabrication techniques are explored as well as video demonstration of the fabrication of a hand-based thumb spica, finger gutter and MP joint blocking splints. In addition, the application and use of a spring finger extension splint, oval 8 splints as well as static progressive finger flexion and extension splints are discussed.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Considerations
Presented by Marie Pace, M.H.S., OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4705Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will present material that will help you better understand thoracic outlet syndrome. You will develop evaluation and treatment strategies to address the issue associated with the thoracic outlet syndrome.

Elbow Stiffness: Therapeutic Management
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4579Level: Advanced1 Hour
Therapeutic intervention for the resolution of elbow stiffness. Joint and soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise and occupation-based interventions to prevent and resolve elbow stiffness are presented. Orthotic principles for prevention and resolution of elbow stiffness are reviewed.

Upper Extremity Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries
Presented by Anna VanVoorhis Miller, MS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4545Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course begins with an in-depth overview of the anatomy and mechanics of traumatic brachial plexus injury, possible nerve transfers, and delves into the role of OT in evaluating and monitoring the progress of recovery. Additionally, it highlights treatment priorities and techniques that may be helpful in the rehabilitation of this patient population.

Elbow Stiffness: Biological and Neurological Considerations
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4578Level: Advanced1 Hour
The unique anatomy and physiology of the elbow joint are explored in the context of contracture development. Contributions of neurological mechanisms of bicipital co-contraction and shoulder girdle substitution to elbow stiffness are elucidate as are implications for therapy management.
