Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The purpose of this study was to determine the level of client satisfaction with device characteristics and service provision of custom-fabricated hand orthotics using the QUEST 2.0 questionnaire. The top three subcategories were comfort, effectiveness, and ease of use. Practitioners who prescribe orthoses should consider client preferences, as they may improve the client's experience and promote better intervention outcomes.
