Provide a patient with reconstructive surgery to enable them to move their fingers and grip again. The most common leprosy-caused disabilities that can be corrected by surgery are a clawed hand, foot drop and a clawed toe. Movement can be restored by using a muscle transfer technique where, with the help of a physiotherapist, a muscle is identified for transfer and strengthened. After surgery and several weeks in plaster, the patient is taught how to use their old muscle to do a new job and then apply the technique subconsciously. The results can see a leprosy-affected person walk again without dragging their foot on the ground or use their hand to grip items.
