Inclusion of British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSHS) has made this event more precious and significant. I am aware that Society for Hand Therapy (SHT) is doing excelled work under the potential leadership of Dr. Shovan Saha and Punita V. Solanki in ‘Making Hand Therapy Viable’ in India and therefore the theme chosen appropriately justify the vision and mission of SHT. Hand therapy is an specialty practice area of occupational therapy and certainly require promotion and visibility amongst common man and medical fraternity in India.

Chinchalkar, MThO, BSc OT, OTR, CHT, OT. Reg. (On) Affiliation: Ex-Senior Hand Therapist, Roth-McFarlane Hand & Upper Limb Centre, St. Joseph’s Health Centre in London, Ontario, Canada. Mobile: +1 (519) 854-5028 Email: schinchalkar@hotmail.com Abstract The Syndrome of Quadriga was first described by Verdan in 1960. Whereas, the Quadriga phenomenon was reported by Wilhelm in 1988. The extensor Tendons to the index, long, ring and small fingers are motored by the common Extensor Digitorum Communis muscle body. Effective function of this muscle can only occur if the gliding amplitude of each of its four-extensor tendon is normal. As a corollary, limitation of the excursion of any of the individual tendons by adhesions at a fracture or tendon repair site, a fixed flexion contracture at the metacarpophalangeal joint or rupture, attenuation or laceration of a sagittal band or juncture tendinum, will result in reduction of the excursion of the adjacent extensor tendons. This pathological state has been termed the “Extensor Quadriga” because of its similarities to the analogous pathology affecting the flexor digitorum profundus system. Improper management of this clinical entity may lead to an abnormal patho-mechanical kinematic chain imbalance. Early Identification and treatment are critical to address this entity appropriately. 2. Faculty Talk Title: Prevention and Management of Zone-Specific Pitfalls in Flexor Tendon Rehabilitation Speaker: Shrikant J. Chinchalkar, MThO, BSc OT, OTR, CHT, OT. Reg. (On) Affiliation: Ex-Senior Hand Therapist, Roth-McFarlane Hand & Upper Limb Centre, St. Joseph’s Health Centre in London, Ontario, Canada. Mobile: +1 (519) 854-5028 Email: schinchalkar@hotmail.com Abstract Flexor tendon anatomy in every zone differs. The excursion and the gliding amplitude of tendons in different zones varies. Despite the number of rehabilitation strategies and guidelines developed to maximize the gliding amplitude of the repaired tendons, secondary complications, such as decreased range of motion, and stiffness associated with tendon adhesions, commonly arise. If left untreated, these early complications may lead to secondary patho-mechanical changes resulting in fixed deformities and decreased function. Awareness of the Zone-specific pitfalls in flexor tendon rehabilitation aids clinicians to modify their treatment approaches to maximize excursion of tendons following repair. This presentation highlights zone-specific potential pitfalls, prevention and management in flexor tendon repairs.

Faculty Talk Title: Role of Modalities in Mitigating the Opioid Use: From Pain to Disuse in Hand and Upper Extremity Rehab Speaker: Saba Kamal, OTR, CHT, USA Affiliation: Director Hands-On-Care, San Jose, CA, USA; Partner/Principal Advanced Rehab Seminars; CEO Intuitive EHR Mobile: 408-268-8536 (Work) Email: sabhoc08@gmail.com ⁎ hocinc@sbcglobal.net Website: https://hocinc.us/ ⁎ http://advancedrehabseminars.com/ Abstract Pain following trauma persists in many: one in four have moderate to severe pain 12 months following trauma, and up to one in three have significant pain and disability 3 years later. Poorly controlled pain in the 1st week following injury increases the risk of severe pain one year later by 2-3 times. Predictors of pain must be managed in the early phases either by medication or through modalities to avoid opioid dependence. Predictors of pain for example Edema, wound or nerve involvement can be managed via modalities and mitigate opioid dependence. This talk discusses the use of modalities from hot pack/cold packs to H-wave, Laser, NMES etc. It also provides information on laterality training and managing disuse with modalities. Knowledge of the modalities and its application is essential to provide maximum benefit in the correct phase of injury to enhance progress and manage opioid abuse. 6. Faculty Talk Title: Understanding an Approach to Rehabilitation in Adult Brachial Plexus Injury Speaker: Dr. Chhaya Verma, PhD (PT) Affiliation: Professor & Head, Physiotherapy School and Centre, TNMC & BYL Nair Ch. Hospital, Mumbai Mobile: +91-9082797203 Email: cvverma100@gmail.com Abstract Most Brachial plexus palsies occur following high-velocity trauma. The complex anatomy of the Brachial plexus and poor understanding make the matters worse. Brachial plexus reanimation surgery in younger age groups have better clinical outcomes. The surgeon needs to be certain regarding preoperative planning so as to be ready for any difficulties and variations during the procedure. Flexion of the elbow is always the first function to restore, followed by shoulder stability, abduction and forward flexion. Brachial plexus injuries need individualised surgery. Nerve transfer is usually pointless after two years from injury as the neuromuscular junction atrophies by that time. The longer surgical time, the learning curve and unpredictable outcomes of neural coaptation beyond a year. It is best avoided. Beyond 1 year of injury, free- functioning muscle transfer to restore shoulder & elbow/hand function becomes choice of surgery in properly selected patients. This subset of patients require exhaustive pre-operative physiotherapy till passive overhead abduction is achieved with supple hand joints as well as prolonged post-operative retraining program depending on type of surgery performed ranging from nerve transfer, free muscle transfer or tendon transfer. Surgical results may be compromised despite the best attempt at reconstruction.

Key Note Address Title: Making Hand Therapy Viable: An Operational Perspective Speaker: Dr. Shovan Saha, PhD (OT), FACOT Affiliation: Associate Professor, Department of Occupational Therapy, MCHF, MAHE, Manipal Karnataka, India Mobile: +91-9880059426 Email: shovanot@gmail.com Website: https://manipal.edu/ Abstract Hand therapy is relatively a new healthcare profession in Indian stage, and is currently going through its social scrutiny. The hand therapists are trying to embrace this new scope of practise in the backdrop of a constrained but promising healthcare opportunity. The healthcare sector in India is poised at a crossroads where the right policy action is extremely critical in determining the future course of the sector. The industry faces major challenges owing to the changing demographics of the country, the poor state of the public infrastructure, lack of financial resources, paucity of human capital and poor governance. Therefore there is a need for carefully and critically monitoring the various options for therapists of tomorrow to make hand therapy more viable. There are no direct literatures to suggest about the elements of hand therapy viability. But from other related sources, the probable elements that could be attributed for enhanced viability are quality of health care and sustainability of health care. The short presentation is an attempt to sensitize our future therapists on these two elements.

Oral Paper Title: Relationship between Uninvolved Joints and Functional Outcomes in Patients with Hand Fractures Author: Chakraborty Roshni Institution: Department of Occupational Therapy, School of Allied Health Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, Karnataka, 576104, India Address: 4 Gyan Kunj Laxmi Nagar, Delhi 110092 Mobile: +91-8800904703 Email: roshnichakravorty520@gmail.com Abstract Background: Injuries of hand can significantly impact the quality of life of an individual. Metacarpal and phalangeal fractures account for 10% of the entire fractures of the upper extremity. Severity of these injuries and their management can impact the functional outcome. Joints of the upper extremity are interlinked and work together as a functional chain where function of each joint will affect the function of other. Objectives: To identify the number of uninvolved joints in phalangeal and metacarpal hand fractures by finding their restrictions in range of motion and to find a relationship between uninvolved joints and functional outcome. Study Design: Cross sectional study Methods: Forty three individuals with metacarpal or phalangeal fractures were recruited for the study. The active range of motion of the joints of the affected upper extremity was measured using goniometer to identify the number of uninvolved joints. Grip strength was measured using Jamar Dynamometer, pinch strength using pinch gauge, manual dexterity and bimanual coordination using Purdue Pegboard Test. DASH scale was administered to measure the level of disability. The values were recorded and compared with the DASH score for each subject. Results: A strong positive correlation was found between physical measures like active range of motion- DASH scores (r=0.97, n=43, p<0.001) and deficit range-DASH scores (r=0 .74, n=43, p<0.001). Conclusion: The results suggest that there is a need for the intervention process following a hand fracture to take into account the conservation and improvement of ROM of the joints surrounding the fracture site of the affected upper extremity.

  45. 45. VIRTUAL SHTICON’2021 e SOUVENIR 45 Society for Hand Therapy, India Background: Trigger Point is a dysfunction that occurs where a nerve enters a muscle. Trigger Points result in muscles which have been traumatized by accidents and overuse. Objectives: 1) To study the immediate effect of Dry Needling on pain at the site of the trigger point in trapezius muscle. 2) To study the immediate effect of Percussor on pain at the site of trigger point in trapezius muscle. 3) To compare the immediate effects of Dry Needling and Percussor on pain at the site of trigger point in trapezius muscle. Study Design: Randomized controlled study Methods: Patients with myofascial trigger point in Trapezius muscle were allotted in two groups A and B by simple random sampling with chit method. Group A: 20 patients were treated by Dry Needling and in Group B: 20 patients were treated by Percussor. Both the groups received treatment for 10 mins and subjects were assessed pre and post treatment in Ultrasonography where size of the active trigger point and muscle width were recorded. Patients were given Vitamin C tablet prior to the treatment. Pain was assessed by Pressure Algometer and subjectively by NPRS. Result: The size of the trigger point which appeared as hypoechoic area in Ultra Sonography and muscle width has increased immediately after the treatment due to the local effects of the needling in both the groups. Clinically patients reported feeling of heaviness immediately after the treatment in Percussor Group but feeling of wellbeing exported is more in Dry Needling compare to Percussor. Immediate depletion of pain recorded in Pressure Algometer. Conclusion: It can be concluded statistically both Dry Needling and Percussor are competent enough to alleviate pain but clinically Dry Needling having better response in pain depletion and in increase in functional independency compared to Percussor.

The beauty of its function sets it apart from other living creatures. Intellectual Disability and Learning disability are disorders characterized by affection of the central nervous system and deficits in coordination and execution of motor function. Hand motor functions are required in all activities of daily living. Objective: To assess and compare the gross motor hand functions in children with Intellectual and Learning disability. Study Design: It is a Cross-sectional, Comparative study. Methods: Children of age group 8-17 years with Intellectual Disability, with Learning Disability and Control group were included in the study with 38 participants in each group. The Box and Blocks test was used to
  46. 46. VIRTUAL SHTICON’2021 e SOUVENIR 46 Society for Hand Therapy, India measure gross motor function and the Nine Hole Peg test was used to measure fine motor hand function. The number of blocks transported and the time taken to complete the peg test with the dominant and non- dominant hand were the outcome measures documented. Statistical analysis was performed using Graph Pad Prism. Anova and Kruskal Wallis tests were performed for the comparison between the three groups. Results: The mean number of blocks transported with was found to be 32.82 ± 10.73 by group A, 42.53± 11.74 by group B and 55.63± 11.04 by group C. The mean duration in seconds to perform Nine Hole peg test was found to be 37.37± 14.96 in group A, 25.84±3.158 in group B and 23.18±2.958 in group C. A significant difference was found between the three groups for the performance of the Box and Blocks test (p<0.0001) and for the performance of the Nine Hole Peg test (p<0.0001). Conclusion: Children with Intellectual Disability performed poorer on both the tests as compared to children with Learning Disability who in turn scored lower compared to Normal children. Our findings provide rationale for hand therapy interventions to improve the manual dexterity in children with Intellectual disability and Learning Disability.

Oral Paper Title: Comparison of Functional Outcome of Soft Tissue and Osseous Hand Injuries Author: Edayalil Nidhi Maria Joseph Institution: Manipal College of Health Professions, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal, Udupi- 576104, Karnataka Address: Sarnath B-15, Anushakti Nagar, Mumbai-400094, Maharashtra, India Mobile: +91-9702684551 Email: nidhimje@gmail.com Abstract Background: Hand is a part of the body which is unique and allows us to perform occupational activities, any injury to this part of the body may impact individual’s ability to perform in activities of daily living, instrumental activities of daily living, education, play, sleep, leisure and social participation. A hand injury can be osseous, soft tissue or a mixture of both osseous and soft tissue. Hand injuries are one of the common injuries found in emergency hospital department having some residual difficulties in their daily lives even after surgery and therapy. Fractures (osseous injury) and tendon injuries (soft tissue injury) are considered the most common among all types of hand injuries. Therefore, there is need to find out the functional outcomes between these two types of injuries. Objective: To compare the functional outcome of hand with soft tissue and osseous injury. Study Design: An observational cross-sectional study. Method: A cross-sectional study was conducted to find the functional outcome between soft tissue and osseous hand injuries ten weeks post-surgery the outcome measures used were Michigan Hand Outcome Questionnaire (MHQ), Jamar Dynamometer and Purdue Pegboard Test. Result: On comparing the two groups the result showed a significant difference between the two groups in MHQ scores (p=0.00), Jamar Dynamometer scores (p=0.00), Purdue both hands (p=0.03), Purdue assembly (p=0.00). There was no significant difference in Purdue right+left+both (p=0.27) and Purdue affected hand (p=0.08). Level of significance was less than 0.05 (p<0.05)

Oral Paper Title: Influence of Hand Injury in Person’s Ability to Draw Dots and Lines: A Cross-Sectional Study Author: Pratihari Anisha Institution: Manipal College of Health Professions, MAHE, Karnataka Address: Harachandi Sahi, Ward No-4, Puri, Odisha, Pincode-752001 Mobile: +91-8093258475 Email: manishapratihari@gmail.com Abstract Background: Hand injury is very common in adults, which may affect the frequently performed writing activity in day-to-day life. Writing is a part of IADL, which helps in communicating messages and thoughts, taking notes, doing signatures, and filling application forms, so in the adult population, writing has a significant role in education, carrier building. Writing needs various manipulative movements to form letters, move across words, sentences, and lines. Drawing dots and lines are the primary step for handwriting. Objectives: To find out the impact of hand injury in drawing the dots and lines and comparing with the age- matched scores of the Handwriting Assessment Battery. Study Design: Cross-sectional study Methods: An observational and cross-sectional method was used. The consent was taken electronically and the pen control and manipulation subtests which include the horizontal line drawing task and the dots task were administered in the online video call. Results: The study recruited 27 participants with hand injury and was age-matched with 27 normal individuals. Fisher’s exact test was used to find out the impact of hand injury in drawing the dots and lines and comparing with the age-matched scores of the Handwriting Assessment Battery. The result shows participants who had hand injuries had difficulty in horizontal line drawing as many of them could not be able to perform that particular task. Hand injury didn’t impact the dots drawing as many of them were able to perform the task. Conclusion: It was found that hand injury essentially impacted the line drawing and not so much the dots drawing.

They often result in pain and functional deficits among these individuals. Proprioceptive training is known to reduce the risk of injuries in such conditions. . However, there is limited understanding of the influence of such interventions especially in the wrist and hand. Objectives: To summarize the evidence for the effectiveness of sensorimotor interventions for wrist and hand injuries Study Design: Scoping review Methods: Eligible articles were identified through a systematic search of PubMed, CINAHL, Scopus, OvidSp and Web of science. Studies that implemented a sensorimotor retraining program for orthopaedic injuries of the wrist and hand were included. No limits was assigned to the study design. Publications that included letters to editor/clinical commentaries and conference proceedings were excluded from the review. Results: Seven studies (one scoping review, one pre and post-test design, two case series, two case reports and one randomized controlled trial) met the eligibility criteria. All 7 studies highlighted the potential role of sensorimotor rehabilitation in wrist and hand injuries. Treatment, diagnosis and duration of intervention varied across studies. Outcome measures evaluating the influence of such interventions on proprioception has also been minimally explored. Conclusion: Studies suggest promising benefits of sensorimotor rehabilitation in patients with fractures and ligament injuries of the wrist and hand. The existing evidence is low due to varying treatment interventions and lack of methodologically strong studies. Well-designed clinical trials should be conducted before definite conclusions are made. Key Words: Proprioception, Rehabilitation, Sensorimotor, Wrist, Hand 07.

Mobile: +91-7381633392, +91-8249263138 Email: imran.warsiot@gmail.com Abstract Background: The elbow joint is a complex synovial joint that permits movement i.e. flexion and extension of a functional upper extremity. Due to traumatic or atraumatic causes stiffness arises around this joint which lead to elbow flexion difficulty and thereby performing daily activities in human life get compromised. Objective: This current study aim is to analyze the change in arc of motion and the influence of the change in elbow arc on activity of daily living. Study Design: An observational study
  49. 49. VIRTUAL SHTICON’2021 e SOUVENIR 49 Society for Hand Therapy, India Method: An observational pre-post design was used to conduct this current study by recruiting 32 participants as per inclusion and exclusion criteria. Inclusion Criteria: Participants with stiff elbow, resulting in incomplete flexion range due to traumatic or atraumatic reasons were recruited for the study; Age: adult with 18 years or older; Participant with traumatic condition were included one-week post immobilization; Atraumatic: not having any sign of inflammation in and around the elbow joint. Exclusion Criteria: Heterotrophic ossification; Bony block around the elbow; Elbow stiffness with associated neurological problem. Results: The pre and post AOM difference was assessed and analyzed using paired t- test. It was found that there was a significant improvement in elbow flexion (p< 0.001). The Patient Rated Elbow Evaluation and AOM differences were correlated using Pearson’s correlation test where a weak positive correlation found between them, it shows that increase in AOM leading to reduction of PREE score. Conclusion: From the current study it is clear that splinting and conventional therapy is effective for elbow extensor contracture and could cause an effect at the terminal end 30 degrees. This study addresses the purpose to observe the change in the arc of motion using a static progressive elbow flexion splint in combination with conventional therapy and this study also revealed that both splinting and conventional therapy is effective for elbow extension contracture with achieved mean AOM at 110.31° (±18.09°).

Professor and Head, Occupational Therapy, Seth GSMC and KEMH Mobile: +91-9987798660 Email: sppalsule@gmail.com Abstract Background: Hand is a major organ of expression and function. Functional capacity of the hand may be affected after a number of traumatic or non-traumatic conditions, including neurological conditions. Hand function evaluations form an important element of upper extremity assessment. Hand assessment helps to define the patient’s problem and is the foundation for selecting and directing treatment. Static evaluation of hand function such as evaluation of grip and pinch strength, range of motion analysis, may not be enough in predicting functional recovery, which incorporates dynamic hand function. Few studies pertaining to indigenously manufactured hand function tests have been reported. An attempt is made in the said study to construct an inexpensive, test of hand function, which would be suitable to the Indian scenario. Objectives: 1. To construct a simple, but comprehensive test for assessment of hand function. (CAT for functional evaluation of the hand) 2. To check the reliability of the CAT test. Study Design: Prospective, cross-sectional Methods: CAT was formed based on existing literature. It consisted of both unilateral and bilateral test items for the same were procured locally. The newly formed tool was administered to a limited population (normal) of 30 Indian subjects in the age group ranging 20-60 years. Here, the newly constructed CAT for hand function evaluation will be administered to a sample of 30 normal. The same population was retested on the test after a period of 3 weeks, to establish the test retest reliability of the test. Administered approximately 3 weeks later. Results: The results of the same were analyzed for test retest reliability. Interrater reliability will be done in later stage of study. Unilateral test items had an excellent test retest reliability Bilateral test items had a Cronbach’s alpha value stating reliability from fair for some items and excellent for some.

Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India Mobile: +91-8082567500 Email: prajaktakarande.pk@gmail.com Abstract Background: Manual dexterity is evaluated in rehabilitation services to estimate hand function because of its contribution to upper limb performance and individual functional independence. With an increasing age hand function declines due to sensorimotor impairment such as decreased motor coordination, decreased manual dexterity as reduced grip strength. Therefore, it is essential to differentiate difficulties attributable to normal aging and difficulties attributable to pathological aging. Minnesota manual dexterity test. (MMDT) is the new version of the Minnesota rate of manipulation test (MRMT). It consists of only two subtests: The placing test and the turning test. Test-retest reliability is the familiar method of collecting data on an instrument given by one examiner at two different time’s interventional programs. Concurrent validity is the method in criterion validity where data are collected at the same time and assessment scores are compared to examine correlation. Objectives: 1. To evaluate the Test-retest reliability of MMDT 2. To evaluate the concurrent validity of MMDT 3. To find out the Normal values of MMDT in elderly population Study Design: Cross-sectional observational study Methods: Three hundred and nine elderly populations were evaluated with MMDT. Subjects were divided into 2 groups. Group 1: 61-70 years (n = 113), Group 2: 71-80 years (n = 196). All subjects performed one practice trial followed by one test trial of two subtests. For test-retest reliability, 58 people were randomly selected from 309 subjects. Box and blocks test and Nine-hole peg test were used to find out concurrent validity. Results: An excellent test-retest reliability i.e. ICC for placing test with 95% confidence interval is 0.93 and for turning test it is 0.97. Correlations of MMDT with Box and Blocks Test and Nine Hole peg test confirm its validity in measuring Dexterity. The normal values of the elderly population will help the therapists to differentiate between difficulties in real dexterity and those that are attributed to normal aging. Conclusion: Our study showed excellent reliability of Minnesota manual dexterity test in elderly population. It showed moderate correlation between Nine Hole Peg Test and MMDT and also weal correlation between BBT and MMDT.

Telehealth in Hand Therapy Practice: Indian vs Global Scenario Author: Karishma Bobade Email: karishmabobade.pt@gmail.com As it is known that the practice of providing health care services by a medical or para medical professional via usage of some technology is termed as ‘Telehealth’. These services are applied through various paths such as phone or video calls, through images and mails. The professional and the patient maintain follow ups through the same pathway and further manage and achieve recover from the ailment. Telehealth or tele rehab was/is the most convenient and widely practiced during the Covid-19 pandemic. Telehealth is a safe and effective way of managing as well as maintaining various kinds of patients with musculoskeletal disorders who might need regular professional’s attention but due the pandemic, the hospital or clinical visits are cut short. Telehealth benefits the most in these kinds of cases, here maintenance in the gains is achieved alongside the professional’s direct attention. Telehealth is also a low cost and time saving practice, many people have survived during this pandemic using tele rehab or telehealth practice to contact and follow up with their respective health care providers. Tele rehab has a positive significant impact on patient’s overall health and helps develop functional performance. Conversely this practice does have its own drawbacks. In the view of Physiotherapy, it is not possible for a Hand therapist to do every type of visit online and once in a while patients still have to go to the clinical setting for assessments like observation, measurements of improvement, as well as for diagnoses that require a more hands-on approach. Another huge risk is the security of personal health data being transmitted electronically. It is a matter of concern as it can be misused by other intruders or hackers etc. Also on the other hand Mediclaim and insurance companies are now widely increasing their target on the population and are covering the cost of telehealth visits during the COVID-19 pandemic, some of these medical services are may not be fully covered, which leads to heavy income usage from patient’s pockets. A therapist plays several important roles of which establishing functional and measurable goals of intervention that are specific to the evaluation findings including an anticipated time frame for attainment and also to establish frequency and duration of interventions in collaboration with patient, family and/or caregiver and referral source. In India telehealth or tele rehab especially of upper extremity or hand gets to face many challenges. As India is a developing country and half of the population is of service class or fewer on daily wages occupation where usage of hand is a must. If an individual who is a sole earning member of a big family and suffers any type of hand injury which is of a major trauma category, then they need to be promptly be made to reach up to the return to work phase in their rehabilitation. Hence in such cases scenarios tele rehabs can be of utmost benefit and condition can be managed without causing extra disturbance to the patient as well as family’s physical and mental health. Most of the population in India now understands and can operate various types of electronic devices, but there are still many people who struggle to deal with these types of new technology and they might need training for using smart or touch phones, video calls and communicating via online softwares without any hassle. Here there family can help them learn and should be present there during the beginning sessions of physiotherapy. This will motivate the patient and may encourage him or her to be adherent to the future sessions resulting into good outcome. Also the family members can guide or correct the patient during hand exercises if they go wrong.
