A splint is a supportive device used to keep in place any suspected fracture in one’s arm or leg.

Splint is used to:

  • Provide pain relief of the fractured limb.
  • Support bone ends of the fracture site. Bones ends of the fracture site are very sharp. A splint helps prevent bone protruding through the skin, soft skin and tissue damage, as well as bleeding.
  • Facilitate safe and seamless causality transport.
