RELEAS Hand Splint Now Available for Children

 

JUNE 25, 2014
MossRehab Occupational Therapist Joseph Padova, OTR/L, has worked with many stroke patients who lost the use of their hands. Determined to help them, he created the RELEAS Splint to enable patients to open and close their disabled hands to grip items while the other hand does the work.

Now, the RELEAS Splint is available to children.

Just like the adult version, RELEAS for kids gives users the ability to open their hand to grasp handles such as on a refrigerator door while opening it, to hold a baseball bat or crayon, tie shoe laces and other tasks that promote the use of the involved hand during self care and improve independence—things that other children take for granted.
