Splints and Braces
Splints are devices which are utilized to support or correct the function of limbs or the spine or to immobilize them. They are commonly used in emergency situations to temporarily immobilize or stabilize a fractured limb or a sprain while the patient is being transported or during treatment. Splints or braces may also be used to remedy a musculoskeletal problem. Braces for the back, knee, shoulder, ankle, and wrist are designed to limit the motion of these physical areas after an injury, surgery, or treatment in order to help the healing process and minimize pain and discomfort.
Braces may be used to restrict movement, assist movement in general, to help rehabilitate a limb after a cast has been removed, to lessen weight bearing, or to correct the shape of a body part, to allow it to move easier, or to lessen pain connected with motion.
