How to use:

Place the injured limb into the splint and, with careful and gentle pressure, adjust the splint. The hand and arm should be fixed into the proper position. Fasten the straps provided. Opening the straps allows for the splint to be removed.


General Info:

Basic version splints use cloth straps for comfort when full circular support is not required. Forte version splints use aluminum core cloth covered straps and offer full circular support and can be used as an alternative to plaster/fiberglass casting. To avoid injury form sharp metallic edges, the splints and the enforced straps must only be bent/adjusted by carefully pressing and should never be cut. When bending and forming, counter pressure is necessary. The rough adjustment should not be preformed on any injured body part, but, if possible, on the un-injured site. Fine adjustment/readjustments can be made without removing the splint. Frequent opening and closing of the splint can damage it. Opening and closing must be restricted to the absolute minimum; to remove the splint, open only one side of the splint. Slip the hand out and in and close the straps again. This allows for its removal and replacement without opening the whole splint every time. To increase the wearing comfort, additional padding from terry cloth can be ordered separately.
