SAM Splint #1359

 

SAM SPLINT, lightweight, cushioned malleable-strip splint, 4-1/4" x 36", reusable, orange/blue, comes rolled

 

The SAM® SPLINT is built from a thin core of aluminum alloy, sandwiched between two layers of closed-cell foam. The SAM® SPLINT is extremely pliable. Bent into any of three simple curves, it becomes extremely strong and supportive for any fractured or injured limb.

 

SAM Splint #1359, 4.25HOW IT WORKS
The SAM® SPLINT is based on an ancient construction principle: curves are strong. The reason lies in the physics of curved surfaces—the same physics that allows skyscrapers and bridges to be built of I-beams and hollow columns rather than heavy steel pillars. A flat piece of sheet metal bends easily, but if you mold it into any of several “structural curves,” it becomes much more rigid. Many such curves are possible, but for splinting with the SAM® SPLINT, you need only three basic curves.  

 

At the same time, the SAM® SPLINT is  extremely moldable, and soft enough to cut with ordinary household scissors. The result: with the proper choice of curves outlined in the training guide, almost any bone in the body can be splinted. It’s even possible to use the SAM® SPLINT to create an emergency cervical collar for neck injuries.
