Course Description: 

Become a splint master!

Fresh out of school?  New to splinting? Returning to splinting? Doing more splinting? Just want to up your splint-making game?

We’ve got the class for you!

That’s right, whether you’re brand new to splint fabrication or find yourself with requests to create more splints than ever before, Successful Splinting: Hands-On Fabrication and Troubleshooting offers the perfect opportunity to hone your skills, gain confidence, and learn to splint like a pro.

Case study-based format covers the anatomy and theory of splinting, introduces you to the latest tools, techniques and materials, and focuses a considerable amount of hands-on time with therapists fabricating several common splints. Taught by highly-qualified professionals with 16 to 38 years of splint-making experience in a multitude of clinical environments, they’re not only experts in the field, they’re passionate about what they do and truly understand the unique challenges you face. With this type of specialized attention and instruction, you’ll walk away with splint-making experience and insight you can use as soon as you get back to your clinic.
