Southwest Elasto Gel Sterile Cast and Splint Pads are designed to help prevent pressure sores and skin irritation that can develop under casts, splints, braces, orthotic and prosthetic devices. These pads are produced from a specially formulated hydrogel, which contains a natural skin moisturizer or conditioner. The gel absorbs moisture under casts, splints or other devices, and is most effective under porous casts or coverings.
