Clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital

Unlike adults, a child’s hand will change in size, structure and skilful ability, depending upon development. Paediatric Hand Therapy focuses upon the assessment and management of the upper limb within the context of a child’s ongoing growth. Traumatic, congenital or acquired conditions are managed using strategies such as:

  • Adaptive techniques to promote optimal independence
  • Splinting
  • Rehabilitation programs
  • Wound care and scar management
