A thermoplastic splint is used to prepare splints for immobilizing fractures, strains, and sprains. They are light and become pliable when heated, and can be molded to fit the contours of the body. The splinting materials are commonly used in orthopedics and sports medicine for a variety of purposes, including the immobilization of fractures, sprains, strains, and other musculoskeletal injuries. They are also used in rehabilitation settings to provide support during the healing process or to help manage pain and swelling.
