Speech-language pathologists How is OT Significant to Burn Rehabilitation? Theories/ Frames of Reference Biomechanical Outcome measures (Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, 2012) (Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, 2012) (WFOT, 2012) Focus: Goal: Principles of human movement and posture
OT perspective: movement and posture during occupation
Used with patients with limited movement, decreased muscle strength, loss of endurance Treatment
- PROM/ AROM exercises
- Splinting/ positioning
- Exercise activities:
clothes pegs, hand grippers/ web,
ROM arc, armbike, etc
- Adaptive equipment: built-up
utensils, reacher, sock aid Psychosocial (Carrougher, 1998; Hubick, 2003; Simons, King & Edgar, 2003) Principles of psychological, social, emotional well-being

- Spiritual care
- Burn support groups

- Therapeutic use of self
- Pain management (relaxation, breathing)
- Consult acute burn specialists Neurodevelopmental Principles of neurology and physiology
Uses positioning and handling techniques
OT perspective: posture, positioning, movement and breathing to support functional mobility and participation in occupation Treatment - Scar management: massage/ stretching, education, pressure garments, Cica care
- Wound management: compression gloves, tubi grip, Coban, elevation, positioning
- Pain management: relaxation, breathing Hand Ax: 9 hole peg test, JAMAR, dynanometer, grip and pinch gauge
Functional Ax: Functional Independence Measure (FIM), goniometry
Burn Ax: Vancouver Scar Scale - Age
- Education

Need for best practice burn rehabilitation research References (Staley & Richard, 1997; Field et al, 2000; So et al, 2003; Edgar & Brereton, 2004;
Gault, 2008; Richard et al, 2009; NDTA, 2012) Domains: self-care, leisure, productivity (Kania & Boersen-Gladman, 2010; WFOT, 2012) (Cole & Tufano, 2008) Canadian Practice Process Framework Occupations people need, want, expected to do Holistic, client-centered approach
Decreased ROM
Hypertrophic scars Occupational performance goal: Limitations: decreased hand grasp Goal of intervention: increase ROM in elbow, Intervention: massage/ stretching, splinting decreased elbow flexion brush teeth independently (Baryza & Baryza, 1995) strengthen hand grasp PROM/ AROM exercises Outcome measures: JAMAR dynamometer FIM, goniometry (So et al, 2003; Simons, King & Edgar, 2003; Edgar & Brereton, 2004; Richard & Ward, 2005; Yohannan et al, 2012) Baryza MJ, Baryza GA.
