Interface Uganda has provided thermoplastic splinting material to the physiotherapy department in CoRSU hospital. Vikram Devaraj transported it on his visit in May 2012. They will be using this to splint out scar contractures (eg, after burns), or to protect repaired structures after injury or surgery.
Christine (physiotherapist) writes: ‘Thanks for the splinting material. It will be of great help to the patients under our care.’
