Prevention in Preparation for Use
OT students Ali Krieger and Courtney Madary, work with a client at the Centro De Rehabilitacion Fisica outpatient clinic in Zacapa, Zacapa, Guatemala. The client had a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) resulting in increased muscle tone in the right hand. Ali and Courtney are fabricating a custom resting hand orthosis to prevent a range of motion loss and assist in normalizing tone. This session also included functional use of the client’s right upper extremity.
