Clinical Specialty Education

Format(s):   Live Webinar
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours:   15
Registration Fee:   $499

Course Objectives/Learner Outcomes
* Recognize the different types and functions of static as well as dynamic and mobilization splints
* Describe the characteristics of various thermoplastics and material selection criteria for a variety of splint types.
* Decribe biomechanical principles as they apply to splint design and fabrication as well as to splint modifications required as joint/tissue mobility improves.
* Identify common prefabricated splints and describe their uses, advantages, and disadvantages.
* List the pros and cons/similarities and differences between static progressive splinting versus dynamic splinting for mobilizing joints and soft tissues
* Describe the benefits of using and designing custom splint patterns and describe advantages, disadvantages, and selection criteria of various designs.
* Problem solve splint design issues in the face of patient variables.
* Identify splint coding designation and describe billing/reimbursement issues.

CSE Classes will be held on dates as listed in a live on-line interactive format. Start and stop times may be adjusted slightly to accommodate for the various time zones. Full contents will be included for all classes and CEU's credits will be recognized as live education.
These classic seminars provide detailed instruction on the fabrication and clinical application of a wide variety of splints including static, dynamic, and static progressive mobilization splints. Both comprehensive splinting courses explore all aspects of splint fabrication including biomechanics, material selection, strapping and padding, pattern making and selection. Principles of dynamic and static progressive splinting theory and application are presented along with practical fabrication concepts. All custom splints discussed in the lectures are illustrated in the manual. Fabrication tips and techniques are described in detail in the manual for future reference. In the FOCUS ON SPLINTING class, course attendees will have an opportunity to fabricate several splints of both static and dynamic designs in a fun, non-threatening, supervised setting. In the ORTHOTIC FABRICATION class, participants will observe Patricia fabricating multiple splints of all types while having the ability to ask questions and to problem solve. The comprehensive course manual contains over 30 life sized patterns which are available exclusively at this course! Use of these patterns insures immediate clinical success and significantly increases confidence! This course has successfully guided therapists on the “art and science of splinting” for over 20 years!
