What has been your experience in using prefab elbow splints for chronic/LTC patients? I am using a dynamic elbow splint with a locking feature to maintain elbow extension. This pt. tends to keep his whole arm in a flexor synergy. My original thought was to have him wear the elbow splint at night. However, the question was raised if that would be too long of a period. What schedules have you used in the past. I want it to be worn at night so that he can use the arm during the day to promote function.
