Lists of key terms for each chapter help familiarize the reader with relevant terminology. Two new case studies have been added to each chapter, strengthening the books clinical application focus. Companion CD contains video clips demonstrating how to fabricate specific splints. Four new chapters cover topics such as occupation-based splinting, tools, processes, and techniques of splinting, and splints for the elbow, shoulder, and fingers.

A new appendix directs readers to helpful online resources and vendors.
