Range of Motion Following Intraoperative Coban Dressing Application in Hand Burns
Participants of this study will include burns requiring skin graft to hand(s). After informed consent, an occupational therapy evaluation will be performed. Participants will consent to surgery, in which skin graft will be applied by physician during surgery, occupational therapy will apply coban dressing. Participant will seen daily by occupational therapist during hospitalization for active range of motion to hand(s). Occupational therapist will measure range of motion of hand(s) and physician will assess graft success at one and four days after surgery and at three out patient clinic visits. Hand strength will also be measured at three out patient visits.
Does the initiation of range of motion on post operative day kone with coban dressing improve hand function without compromising graft success?
