Splinting supplies include all kinds of devices required for support and immobilization when splinting an injury, strapping and padding. Strains, sprains and fractures need splinting to keep the area partially or fully immobilized for speedy recovery. The splinting supplies that provide this support are made from a lighter and adjustable material when compared to heavy casts and easily conform to various body parts. They are more hygienic because they can be removed and cleaned.
At Health Products For You there is a comprehensive range of casting and splinting supplies which are of superior quality. The different types include:
Choosing the right splinting material for casting and splinting supplies is dependent on the type of injury and the splinting used. And this is possible because there is a wide variety of splinting material available. Some are strong and stiff, some non-stick and others soft. There are those which are cost-effective while there are some splinting materials that can withstand high temperatures necessary for certain sterilization requirements. There are splinting supplies made from hard material but this hardness can be customized once heated. On heating, they become stretchable and conformable. Elastomer is one kind of a splinting material. It is like soft putty which easily molds for a snug fit against the skin. This type is strong and durable and apt for creating finger separators as well as web space splints for the hands and feet. Elastomer can be used on its own or in combination with another splint type. Splinting materials are generally waterproof and antimicrobial. They are breathable in nature and available in mini- and micro-perforated formats.
