ABSTRACT The ability to make a full fist and grasp objects is a necessary motion for many everyday activities. For this reason, therapists continually create and modify splints in an attempt to achieve composite flexion in the hand. In this article, the authors describe their static progressive splinting approach to improve composite flexion in patients with hand stiffness due to trauma.
