Description

The CAS Splint is designed to stabilise and support broken / fractured limbs. The innovative product is a complete splint small enough to fit into a first aid kit, strong enough to support an adult limb and easily shortened to support a child’s limb. The CAS Splint includes 4 straps that allows the user to secure the splint to the injured limb, without the use of additional bandages. A key benefit is that patients can administer the splint themselves in case of emergency; however it is recommended the patient receive help in securing the Splint where possible.

The clever foldable design ensures the product fits into a standard size first aid kit; meaning it is perfect for the home, car, office or sporting club. The CAS Splint, made from polypropylene sheeting, can fit onto any arm or leg and will shape around the limb allowing for maximum support. For a child, the splint can either be cut to size, or simply extended past the fingers.

Designed and manufactured in Adelaide, South Australia, the splint materials are also recyclable and can be disposed easily when required. Further, the materials allow for x-rays to also be taken without the doctor having to remove the splint meaning less discomfort for the patient.
