Second Skin prescribes a comprehensive range of dynamic upper limb splints and lower limb splints for children and adults who have had spinal injuries.
Each splint targets particular medical, therapy, client and family goals.
Second Skin upper limb splints are commonly prescribed to assist with maintenance of posture, range of motion, skin integrity, comfort and oedema (swelling) management. They may also be prescribed to target specific functional goals such as self-care, wheelchair driving and access to technology where appropriate.
Dynamic foot splints are prescribed for this client group to impact positively on lower limb oedema, toe positioning and maintenance of skin integrity.
More extensive postural and body splinting may be prescribed for children with spinal injuries in order to assist with spinal management, seating, positioning and maintenance of skin integrity. Postural and Body Splints allow easier handling and care for families, school and therapy teams.
