Blue Splint/Blue Splint Pro
Rigid splints with flexible internal structure
A handy system created by Spencer to immobilize joints effectively and simply. The Blue Splint immobilization system, made in five shapes, has changed its way of treating fractured or sprained joints. All splints can be modelled according to the necessity of each case and once obtained the desired profile, the splint will offer extraordinary rigidity. To align the splint in a straight position it is sufficient to straighten by hand the inside structure. Blue Splints are extremely light and could be overlapped with each other to create an infinity of configurations and solutions.
They can be used for adults and children of any size. The versatility and the compactness that characterize the splints make them useful for the rescuer even in the most strange of situations. The arm and forearm splints are also used as an armrest during intravenous infusions. Perfect for ambulances, medical cars, mountain rescue, sport medicine, water rescue, orthopaedic centres, first aid and any kinds of emergency departments. The lightweight of the complete kit and the reduced dimensions makes it the least cumbersome and compact system on the market. In order to make the immobilization system even more easy, Spencer has introduced the Blue Splint Pro, a unique product that thanks to the quick closure and to the wide range of adjustments, can maximize performance. This model is characterized by special elements that increase its durability, certainly appreciated by those who intensively use splints. Ripstop carrying case. They are also supplied singularly.
Made of self-adherent strips, they allow a fast and easy fixation. The top part of each splint is
highlighted by an orange coloured self-adherent strips. The Blue Splint Pro have straps with adjustable
nylon buckles. The top strap is highlighted with by blue webbing.
The finishing high precision
Finishing is high precision and resistant in order to increase the performance of the
splints in comfort and durability. The profile structure is obtained by sewing a nylon band
to the Nyoprene support.
The outside part is blue, the inside is black.
The Inside structure
It is made of a tempered ergonomic profile. The profile, purposely studied, offers total rigidity. The thermal treatment allows bending and return to the original profile under normal conditions without considerable structural alterations.
It can be done directly with alcohol or mild disinfectants. On removing the inside structure,
Blue Splint can be machine-washed at a maximum of 40 °C [+104 °F].
Osama-Tex has specifically studied and produced Nyoprene for the realization of Blue
Splints. Nyoprene has structural characteristics and incomparable therapeutic and
dynamic properties, determined by the sandwich composition: a central core of neoprene,
covered by non-absorbent 100% laminated nylon on the outside and inside part. This configuration permits:
- pain relief caused by muscle tendon and joint strains
- maintains constant body temperature
- contributes to lightly compressing the injured area, thanks to the flexibility and adaptability of Neoprene, whilst preventing swelling of the limbs
- reduce congestion around the lesion
- increase the durability of the material
- improve cleaning and disinfection
- operates with excellent temperature range (from -40 to +60 °C) [from -40 to +140 °F]
Adhesives are not used in the coupling therefore cutaneous irritations are eliminated; it
also increases the performance of perspiration and heat control.
