One day Bob woke up to begin his daily routine to get ready for school. When getting out of bed he tripped on his cat fluffy. When he fell he landed on his right arm causing a Colles Fracture. This prevented Bob from completing his daily activities, such as ADLS, school assignments, and driving his car. Bob is then scheduled to see an occupational therapist for six weeks after his cast is removed. The Bob’s goal is to increase range of motion in his right elbow, forearm, wrist, and digits. The OT practitioner assigns Bob finger exercises with rubber band and rubber ball to strengthen his grasp to restore his driving abilities and ADL’s.
The OT practitioner would use “establish” in his left hand if he completely lost function in his primary hand.
