What are cast and splint?

The casts and splints are orthopedic devices used to protect and support the broken or injured joints and bones. They help keep the bone in place until it heals completely. The casts vary from splints as they facilitate the person with more support and protection for the broken or injured limb. Casts are manufactured from plaster or fiberglass material since they are easily molded in the shape of the broken limb.

 

Splints are also known as half-casts. They facilitate the patient with a lesser amount of support as compared to the fiberglass casts. However, these are quick and easy to use. Subsequently, you can tighten or loosen them as per your need or when you see the swelling in the limb. The quick-to-use splints are found in various shapes and sizes. They are also customized depending on the needs of the patient. Velcro straps make the process easier for the patient or healthcare provider to put on or take the splint off.

At HPFY, we provide the best quality leg casts from top brands like Brown Medical, Mabis DMI Healthcare, and Advanced Orthopaedics to name a few.

When to use cast and splint?

The Casts and splints are used on the broken limb. They are often used after surgery. Splints are sometimes used immediately after encountering swelling at the injured site. Once the swelling decreases, a leg cast is applied to the broken or damaged leg or arm. One may have to replace a cast amidst the recovering process or when the swelling around the injury goes away and the cast is loosened. In such a case, the cast may be replaced with a splint for better movement.

FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

An orthopedic cast is a solid shell usually made from plaster or fiberglass to encase a limb in order to stabilize and hold anatomical structures, most often to secure a broken bone in place for a period until healing is confirmed.

Casts are available in two types:

  • Plaster of Paris: A white powder that forms a thick paste that hardens quickly when mixed with water. These casts are heavier than the fiberglass casts.
  • Synthetic (fiberglass) material: Made out of fiberglass which is a kind of moldable plastic, these casts are available in many bright colors and are light in weight.

A wet cast could start to dissolve in water and may irritate the skin underneath it, possibly leading to infection. A wet cast may not hold the bone in place due to the dissolving property of plaster of paris. Fiberglass casts are water proof but the inside padding is not waterproof and it may not dry thereafter.
