I made this for a client who was unable to bend their elbows. There was some bony limitations, but they were also lacking bicep muscles. There is a harness that fits over the trunk and rests on the shoulders, then there are two wrist splints. A piece of Theraband is attached to the shoulder and to the wrist, which allows them to extend their arm, but also stretch it back into flexion. It also allows the person to bring something to their mouth for self-feeding.
