Tymar Fields

MOTR/L, CHT

Tymar is a pediatric occupational therapist and certified hand therapist. Professionally, she is inspired by new ideas and creative problem-solving and has a passion for learning. She began her occupational therapy career in 2008 at a nonprofit level 1 trauma hospital. In this role, she worked with children and adults in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Her specialty area was trauma and orthopedics. As her interest in pediatrics expanded, she began working with children with brachial plexus birth injuries.

Tymar became a certified hand therapist and dedicated herself to pediatrics in 2014. She is the lead therapist in the multidisciplinary brachial plexus clinic at Children's Hospital Colorado. Tymar partnered with her colleague to create a motor-intensive program for children with brachial plexus birth injuries. She is the primary author of a current retrospective qualitative study describing the outcomes of modified constraint-induced movement therapy and bimanual motor intensives for children with brachial plexus birth injuries.

Additionally, Tymar specializes in orthosis fabrication for preterm and medically fragile infants, congenital limb differences, care of traumatic injuries, wound and burn care, and upper extremity orthopedics. She is a national and international presenter on a variety of pediatric hand therapy topics.

Orthosis Design, Fabrication, and Use With the Medically Complex Infant (Recorded Webinar)

Presented by Tymar Fields, MOTR/L, CHT

Orthosis Design, Fabrication, and Use With the Medically Complex Infant (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 144 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 33 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from those of standard MedBridge courses.

Using orthoses is a widely accepted intervention in occupational therapy. While high-quality resources about orthosis fabrication are available for the general pediatric population, these resources do not always address the specific needs of the medically complex infant. Orthosis interventions should be implemented within a context of providing neuroprotective care for the baby.

The goals of this course are: (1) to provide occupational therapists with a systematic way to assess orthosis needs and determine best orthosis interventions to meet infant developmental goals, and (2) to educate occupational therapists in safe orthosis fabrication on a medically complex infant. This webinar is geared toward occupational therapists who work with medically complex infants in inpatient hospital or outpatient therapy settings.

Brachial Plexus Birth Injury: The First Year

Presented by Tymar Fields, MOTR/L, CHT

Brachial Plexus Birth Injury: The First Year

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 54 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 29 Minutes

The first year of life for infants with a brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI) is a critical time for nonsurgical and surgical interventions. Brachial plexus birth injuries are relatively uncommon, and most pediatric clinicians will infrequently provide care for this population. Many pediatric clinicians need additional resources to provide optimal interventions for this unique population. After completing this course, clinicians will be confident in evaluation, therapeutic interventions, and home programming for infants with a BPBI. Clinicians will understand critical timelines for therapy and surgical interventions to optimize development and upper extremity function. This is an introductory-level course for occupational and physical therapists and early intervention providers.

Brachial Plexus Birth Injury: The Toddler Years Through Early Childhood

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 50 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 29 Minutes

Between the ages of 1 and 6 years old, children rapidly grow and develop. A brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI) can dramatically impact the physical development of the upper quarter and the functional use of the arm. Clinicians must understand the critical timelines for interventions to optimize upper extremity function and participation in meaningful activities. Brachial plexus birth injuries are relatively uncommon, and most pediatric clinicians will infrequently provide care for this population. Many pediatric clinicians need additional resources to provide optimal interventions for this unique population. After completing this course, clinicians will be confident in evaluation, therapeutic interventions, and home programming for toddlers, preschoolers, and young children with a BPBI. Clinicians will understand critical timelines for therapy and surgical interventions to optimize development and upper extremity function. This course is an introductory course for occupational and physical therapists and early intervention providers.

Brachial Plexus Birth Injury: Late Childhood Through Adolescence

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 50 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 29 Minutes

A brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI) can dramatically impact the physical development of the upper quarter in a child's younger years. By the time they enter late childhood and adolescence, these individuals have often gone through surgical procedures and countless hours of therapy. Despite these interventions, there are still challenges and limitations with functional use of the affected arm. Clinicians must understand the unique needs of older children and teens to optimize upper extremity function and facilitate participation in meaningful activities. Brachial plexus birth injuries are relatively uncommon, and most pediatric clinicians will infrequently provide care for this population. Many pediatric clinicians need additional resources to provide optimal interventions. After completing this course, clinicians will be confident in evaluation, therapeutic interventions, and home programming for older children and teens with a BPBI. Clinicians will understand critical timelines and common surgical interventions to optimize development and upper extremity function. This is an introductory course for occupational and physical therapists.
