Diane came again today and we are trying a couple of different applications of the kinesio tape. One goes from the elbow and over the thumb to help bring her arm into a neutral position as well as pull the thumb out a bit. Her fingers are always relaxed but she does have thumb abduction going on. Also, since Mr. Larry dumped the orthotic yesterday, Diane did a taping on D's leg which imitates what the orthotic did but without the sensory interruption.
The kinesio tape comes in a wide assortment of colors (today Diane had flesh and purple). We just went with the flesh because it is less noticeable and D didn't pull at it last week. I think the purple would call too much attention to her.
