Fluoro Medical recommends 4-5 Splints per First Aid Kit for Australian Retirement Villages. And 1 Splint per First Aid Kit for personal use.
The CAS Splint is small enough to fit into a standard First Aid Kit
It is complete with all required elements to secure the splint to the fractured / broken limb – meaning there is no need to buy extra bandages to secure your splint in place.
The polypropylene material is strong enough to hold the limb in a secure place, yet flexible enough to shape to a patients limb.
In Australia there is 1 fracture every 3.6 minutes with majority of these occurring in our aging population. (ABS)
For people 65 years old and older falls are the number one cause of death from an injury, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Australian Institute for Health and Welfare reports that 65% of falls result in the fracture of limbs. Correct administration of a broken limb can lead to the reduction of permanent harm for patients, especially in the over 65 age bracket.
Whilst many retirement villages have trained nurses on hand, there are still time where un-trained professionals will need to support a fall victim. The CAS Splint is designed to be administered by anyone – with or without a medical background. This product is also important for seniors in independent living conditions who may not have a nurse on hand.
The CAS Splint is a new complete splint designed to rapidly and effectively administer a suspected broken / fractured limb. The product is an innovative Australian design and manufactured in South Australia to ensure the highest standards.
The CAS Splint only takes seconds to assemble and can be administered easily by persons with no medical training.
