This webinar will focus on orthoses used in upper extremity peripheral nerve injuries and rehabilitation.

The use of orthoses will be also discussed related to treatment of median, ulnar, and/or radial nerve dysfunction.
- Participants will be able to identify a time saving technique when fabricating an elbow orthosis for cubital tunnel.
- Participants will be able to compare and contrast two orthoses for radial nerve injuries.
- Participants will be able to identify fit issues when fabricating an orthoses for the treatment of a claw hand deformity.
- Participants will be able to identify an orthoses for carpal tunnel syndrome that considers the intrinsic anatomy of the hand and its affect on median nerve pressure.
