Aids and splints

After an assessment with an Occupational Therapist or Orthotist you may be given a piece of equipment or kit to help with the way your hand, foot, arm or leg works.

These may include:

  • shoe inserts
  • pencil grips
  • grips for knives and forks
  • splints to help rest your joint and make it less uncomfortable
  • splints to straighten your joint.

If you need to use an aid or splint, your Occupational Therapist or Orthotist will tell you more about how and when to use it.
