This study evaluated the use of the MacKinnon splint upon grasp skills in three children, ages 2 1 2 to 7 1 2, with spastic hemiplegia. The MacKinnon splint was sequentially introduced in a multiple baseline design across subjects. The results indicated improvement in each child's grasp of eight different, randomly presented objects, after a MacKinnon splint was provided for daily wear.
