MossRehab Occupational Therapist, Joe Padova worked with many stroke patients who had lost the use of their hands. Determined to help them, he created the RELEAS Splint to enable patients to open and close their disabled hands to grip items while the other hand does the work.
Now, the RELEAS Splint is available to children!
Just like the adult version, RELEAS for kids gives users the ability to open their hand to grasp handles such as on a refrigerator door while opening it, to hold a baseball bat or crayon, tie shoe laces and other tasks that promote the use of the involved hand during self care and improve independence...
...things that other children take for granted.
Preston, the young man in the video, had a stroke. It either occurred in utero, or during delivery.
The RELEAS Splint can work for children who have hemiparesis either from the diagnoses of stroke, or CP and various other neurological problems such as TBI or radial nerve injuries.
