Orthoses, Multipurpose Splint

Definition : Orthoses (i.e., multipurpose splints) designed for rapid and easy support, immobilization and protection of one of a variety of body parts after fractures, sprains, and/or dislocations. These orthoses typically consist of a semi-rigid or rigid device made of plastics, metal, wood, or a combination of these; splints are usually moldable or pre-molded appropriately. The orthoses are usually kept in position attached to the body part using straps, cuffs, or belts. Multipurpose splint orthoses are mainly used on the limbs after fractures, sprains, and/or dislocations; they may be used also around the neck, head and/or other anatomic parts. The splints may be used during all the treatment procedure, before casting, and/or to facilitate taking radiographic images of the affected body part.
