A cut-to-length, fiberglass splinting material that is packaged in an easy-to-use, easy-to-seal system. The splinting material is made of layered fiberglass and is pre-padded with our patented water-repellent felt.
Covered on one side by an air and moisture permeable non-woven fabric and on the other side by polypropylene felt, which serve as padding. The felt is hypoallergenic, water repellent, and absorbs 60% less water than other splints, which means less water against the patient's skin.This splint is packaged in a unique, self-sealing system that minimizes waste, enhances productivity and gives the clinician the ability to cut the splint to the length needed.Exposure of the splints to moisture or water initiates a chemical reaction that causes the splints to become rigid. A finished splint is lightweight, strong, and more radiolucent than plaster.
