Patient stories from the therapy department at CoRSU hospital

Thank you to Rhonah Asinguza and Christine Tusiime for compiling such a good report about how they have been using the splinting material we have supplied and sent out.  They have used the material on 27 patients so far this year.

Mary - splints May 2017Here is one of the patient stories:

Mary (not real name) has a history of cleft lip and arthrogryposis. She is now doing well, attending school, and able to walk and use her hands; her parents are pleased with her progress. She was referred to Occupational Therapy as her wrist was developing in a flexion contracture. A thermoplastic splint was fabricated to place her hands in a functional position, with instructions for her to wear at night.
