Application: 1. Undo all Velcro straps on the splint and place in front of the patient’s weak arm. 2. Place the forearm in the large trough. Make sure that the forearm is placed comfortably in the middle of the trough, fingers on top, and the thumb placed in the thumb trough (as shown below). 3. Attach the Velcro strap closest to the elbow across the end of the forearm.
