The SAM 36 Inch Splint is very flexible and malleable until a curve or fold is placed anywhere across its longitudinal axis and then it becomes rigid and suitable for splinting.
For those of you who live Life on the Edge (and even those who don't) be sure to have your SAM 36 Inch SPLINT with you. Useful for immobilizing adult lower extremity fractures or sprains. With its large size and ability to be cut to size, the 36 inch splint is useful for a variety of injuries requiring a splint.
The SAM 36 Inch Splint is radiolucent, can be cleaned and even cut with a regular pair of scissors if necessary (cutting exposes the thin aluminum core, we recommend folding the edge on itself a couple of times or covering the edge with tape). Hold the splint in position with elastic wrap, gauze, tape or whatever material you have available.
