Abstract: Occupational therapists in Hong Kong have been very active in the management of patients with traumatic hand injuries due to industrial accidents. Splints have been prescribed as an adjunct to the exercise programme in rehabilitation. Other than the conventional thermoplastic splinting materials, metal hinges, coils and plastic strapping were used in splinting. The ultimate goal is to maximise the hand functions such that these workers could resume their work roles.
