2018 HAND THERAPY WEEK ORTHOSIS SELFIE WINNER 

CONGRATS Dorinda Rodriguez, OTR, OTD, CHT

Dorinda’s entry showed a patient who suffered an index and long finger amputation just distal to the MCP joint and partial amputation of the thumb proximal to the IP joint. He experienced difficulty with opposition of thumb to ring finger for pinching due to lack of ring finger flexor tendon excursion for PIP/DIP joint flexion.  This client worked in the ER as a physician assistant and required this pinch for suturing of lacerations.  An oval 8 ring orthosis was fabricated to place the distal phalanx in slight flexion and a thermoplastic attachment was added so that the small finger could assist the ring finger in flexion and opposition to distal tip of thumb. This allowed him to grasp smaller sized objects in opposition and provided him with the necessary assistance to utilize pinch for completion of suturing in the ER.
