Melbourne Hand Rehab makes custom leather splints for chronic injuries including Osteoarthritis and wrist pain

CUSTOM LEATHER SPLINTS

Hello everyone!

We are excited to announce that our leather splint lab is up and running. We custom make leather splints to fit you individually. These splints provide maximum support for long term use of chronic injuries including osteoarthritis and wrist pain. Our video this month takes a behind the scenes look at the making of custom splints in our Leather Lab.

Did you know that many new parents develop pain in the thumb or wrist due to the many new and awkward movements that taking care of a new baby involves? This month we have a free information webinar covering hand conditions that affect new parents, including some helpful tips. 

In this issue:
  • Our Leather Lab: custom made leather splints
  • Blog: Tennis Elbow but you don't pay tennis?
  • Medipass - digital health payments
  • Hydrotherapy is back!
  • FREE Webinar: Hand conditions that affect new parents
 
Happy reading,

Karen and the team at Melbourne Hand Rehab

INTRODUCING OUR LEATHER LAB:
CUSTOM SPLINTS FOR LONG TERM CHRONIC INJURIES
People restricted in their activities due to ongoing wrist or thumb pain often have a need for a brace for the medium to long term to support the wrist.

Long lasting leather braces custom made to fit your wrist perfectly are hard wearing, breathable, and allow a comfortable degree of movement but provide exceptional support. The benefit of leather is that overtime it adjusts to your body and conforms to you. It’s environmentally friendly too.
