Research Facts
Inflatable or pneumatic splints are ready to use and will conform to shape of limb inserted. Application is faster, simpler, and more comfortable than conventional bandaging / splinting techniques. Helps prevent further damage to soft tissues, combats shock, and relieves pain. Applies uniform pressure to injured arm or leg - provides rigid support, permits free circulation. Immobilizes, cushions, and protects injured limbs so that victim can be transported safely, easily. Completely washable and reusable - can be sterilized by gas or cold solution. Transparent so the splint need not be removed for x-raying.
Inflatable splints are used to immobilize, or keep still, and protect an injury such as a broken arm or leg. Inflatable splints come in different shapes and sizes and are stored deflated in a small bag in the ambulance. If a patient has an injury that needs to be protected, anyone can place the splint on the limb and then use a small hand pump to inflate the splint. This creates a large air balloon around the limb and offers it some protection from moving or knocking it.
Physicians & Nurses Manufacturing Corp. were in business from 1971-1995 in New York USA.
