About

Visual feedback therapy is a cheap, easy, and, most importantly, patient-directed treatment that may improve the recovery of hand motor functional skills. Visual feedback therapy consists of repeated bilateral, symmetrical movements in which the patient moves the affected body part as much as he/she could while observing the reflection.The hands account for less than 5 % of total body surface area. Many burns requiring hospitalization involve the upper extremity considered severe injuries by the American Burn Association and should be referred to specialized care centers to minimize sequella of thermal injury including nail deformities, hypertrophic scars, boutonniere deformity, digit loss, and contractures. Visual feedback therapy is a treatment method based on neuroplasticity of the brain.Although recent studies have demonstrated the benefit of visual feedback therapy for various diseases, research that applies visual feedback therapy to improve the restorative capability of hand function of patients with reduced hand function due to mutilated injury has not been reported yet.

Full description

This study will be a randomized controlled trial. Study will be approved by ethical committee. After that informed consent will be taken and patients will be included in the study based on the inclusion criteria. Non probability convenience sampling technique will be used and study will be conducted on 36 patients diagnosed with post burn hand contractures 8-12 years old children. Patient will be randomly categorized into two groups by using flip coin method. Experimental group will receive visual feedback therapy and conventional therapy treatment protocol. Control group will receive only conventional therapy. Pre and Post interventions assessment will be made for both groups. Post burn hand contractures of the patients will be assessed by checking ROMS of hands with goniometer. The ABILHAND questionnaire will also be performed to check the functional movements of hands and visual analogue scale will be used for pain assessment. Data will be analyzed by using SPSS 25.0 statistical tool. Appropriate statistical test will be used after checking normality of data.
