Primary Outcome Measures:
  • ROM changes with use of treatment [ Time Frame: 20 weeks ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: May 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dynasplint Group
Along with the standard of care Botox and manual therapy, patients will use the Supination Dynasplint every day
Device: Dynasplint
Dynamic splinting utilizes the protocols of Low-Load Prolonged Stretch (LLPS) with calibrated adjustable tension to increase Total End Range Time (TERT)to reduce contracture. The Dynasplint or "Experimental" group will add this therapy to their standard of care regimen
No Intervention: Standard of care
Patients in the standard of care group will have the standard Botox treatments and manual therapy with no additional interventions.
