A ready-to-use, highly conformable splint made of layered fiberglass and pre-padded with patented water-repellent felt for quicker drying. Prepackaged in a variety of sizes to meet application needs.
Covered on one side by an air and moisture permeable non-woven fabric and on the other side by polypropylene felt, which serves as padding. The felt is hypoallergenic, water repellent, and absorbs 60% less water than other splints; which means less water against patient's skin. The conformable splint comes pre-cut and is available in a variety of prefabricated, individually pouched sizes. This low-profile, pre-padded splint is priced comparably to fiberglass roll splints and is more portable and faster to apply. 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.
