Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe the therapeutic interventions used for people with limited function of the hand due to osteoarthrtis or rheumatoid arthritis. The study was accomplished through a literature studie. Data were collected through a search of databases considering the criteras for inclusion or exclusion that were established by the authors before the search. Twelve articles were included in the study and analysed through a qualitative content analysis. Fivedifferent categories of occupational interventions were revealed through the analysis. The categories are orthotics, heat and cold treatment, information and education, strength and range of motion exercises and training in activity of daily life. The result of the analysis continued with an interpretation of OTIPM to furher iluminate the occupational focus of activity. A minority of the occupational interventions used as treatment of clients with a limited function of the hand due to osteoarthrits or rheumatoid arthritis correspond to the focus of activity described in OTIPM.
