Therapy servicesIRS can fabricate custom made splints for most neurological and arthritic conditions, using a range of materials to suit individual needs. We can also advise on and provide ready made splints.

Reasons why an individual may require a splint are varied but could include:

  • Reduction of pain
  • Reduction of oedema
  • Supporting arthritic or weak joints
  • Improving function or positioning joints
  • Managing spasticity
  • Enhancing recovery and preventing deterioration.

The process of providing a splint always includes a detailed assessment, fabrication of the splint, provision of written information, monitoring of therapeutic aims and after care. In most cases fabrication of a splint would form part of a comprehensive Occupational Therapy intervention programme.
