Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

A burn to the hand greatly affects occupational performance. Early mobilization after a skin graft to the hand is not recognized in the burn rehabilitation literature. This study presents a protocol and outcomes of initiating range of motion the day after a skin graft to the burned hand.
