CE Credit Hours: 1.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
Occupational therapists who use their fabrication skills often should also have a good working knowledge of the mechanics of the hand and upper extremity. This helps them ensure their orthoses promote function and prevent injury simultaneously. Therapists should also be aware of other healthcare providers who can assist in meeting the full spectrum of their patients’ needs. This will help them present patients with the devices that are best suited for their lives. Creating and fitting orthoses is a learned skill that is a valuable asset for any therapist, regardless of what practice setting they work in. This specialized area helps therapists gain a deeper understanding of biomechanics and joint motion to encourage improved upper extremity function.
