Polymer Splints are strong, durable, moldable, and comfortable splints that are made with a special multilayer polymer fiber. The polymer fiber is saturated with polyurethane and polyester, which provides incredible durability and support. Polymer splints are used to treat broken bones, sprains, or strains by temporarily immobilizing them until healing is complete.

What is the difference between a splint and a cast?
Splints and casts are both used to support and protect injured bones and tissues by keeping them in place. Splints are used for minor factures and for newly broken bones if the surrounding area is swollen. Splints are a better option when there is swelling because a cast can get tight and affect the circulation.
