Research Facts
The DePuy Companies are part of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies; Revra DePuy founded DePuy Manufacturing (later to become DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.) in 1895 in Warsaw, Indiana, on the promise of a fiber splint to replace the wooden barrel staves then used to set fractures; DePuy then becomes the first commercial orthopaedic manufacturer in the world; the Colles splint is generally used for distal-end fractures of the ulna and radius; it can be fitted to the correct angle of flexion by slightly twisting and bending the splint
