I made a splint!

I made my first splint independently last week. I’ve made lots of splints in my time, especially footplates (to prevent foot drop), but every time I ever made a splint before, I had a clinical instructor or someone else right there to help me out. This splint I did all by myself. And I did a really good job, too 🙂 It was a relatively simple splint, a knee extension splint for a below knee amputee (BKA), but I’m happy that I was able to do is all by my lonesome self.
