Introduction to Casting in Neurology
After the event
This two day course, for physiotherapists and occupational therapists, offered a theoretical and practical introduction to casting complex neurological patients.
It focused on,
- an interdisciplinary view on the role of Scotch and soft splinting in the management of complex disability
- encouraging joint occupational therapy and physiotherapy reasoning and practical working
- an integration of splinting into interdisciplinary practice, including a review of the splinting guidelines and medical presentation on hypertonicity management
- a strong practical component with the opportunity to fabricate upper and lower limb splints with all materials provided to enable learning to be directly applied to practice.
