Clawing of the hand in Leprosy, which is caused due to paralysis of intrinsics can often be prevented and corrected to some extent if looked in properly. Splints can contribute a lot to this. This article emphasizes the use of variety of splints prepared from alumafoam, hexcelplast and such other materials, as an adjunct to other physiotherapy measures like wax-bath, massage and exercises.
