In 1974, occupational therapist Cynthia Garris was forced to take a new look at splint therapy – in that year, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She had long believed in the value of splinting, but soon realized that none of the existing technologies addressed the long-term use of splints. While plastic splints were adequate for treating short-term trauma, they were not an ideal solution for lifetime wear. In 1985, she set out to design and manufacture a new series of splints that were both more effective and more attractive than the splints then in use. In the process, she revolutionized splint therapy.
