Asymmetrical tone and weakness in antagonistic muscles often result in misalignment of joint, contractures and deformities. Traditional static splints used to prevent these complications are expensive, have to be custom made and cannot be used when deformities are marked. Authors describe fabrication and use of pneumatic splints, which are economic, safe and easy to apply. These splints have wide application in the management of common medical problems in neurological rehabilitation like hypotension, edema, pain, spasticity and early deformities.
