The knowledge and experience about treating elbow stiffness, although it is expanding, it still remains a difficult condition to treat with an unpredictable outcome. Splints have been one of the mainstay nonoperative management tools to improve motion when standard exercises alone seem insufficient. Based on the existing literature, certain limitation has been identified in the existing designs and practises of the splinting practise. Therefore, a need was felt to develop a novel corrective static progressive elbow extension splint to overcome the challenges of existing splinting interventions for elbow flexion contracture.
