Managing the Complex Neuro Upper Limb Workshop

Managing the Complex Neuro Upper Limb - A Taste of Therapy and Technology.

Date: TBD

Speaker: Bev Quee, OT 

Course Overview:

Is what we see in clinical practice for chronic complex patients aligned with the current practice guidelines?

Can you change contractures in the upper limb with just splinting? Or is it a multi modal approach? If so, what else do you do in practice?

This one day workshop will provide a taste of therapy approaches - revisit splinting/casting for the complex hand; help you to understand the power of FES in upper limb rehab; learn about the use of NIN for pain management and the use of technology in clinical practice. From this workshop, we can then expand and focus on areas of need.

Session 1: Review of Splinting / Casting 

Session 2: Using electrical stimulation in UL therapy

Session 3: Using Non Invasive Neurostimulation (NIN) to manage pain and to improve ROM

Session 4: Incorporating technology into clinical practice 

Session 5: Case Studies
