Acclaimed by emergency care providers and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide (and even beyond the Earth, on NASA space shuttles), the SAM® SPLINT is based on an ancient construction principle: curves are strong.The SAM SPLINT is built from a thin core of aluminum alloy, sandwiched between two layers of closed-cell foam. The SAM® SPLINT is extremely pliable. Bent into any of three simple curves, it becomes extremely strong and supportive for any fractured or injured limb.
HOW IT WORKS
The reason lies in the physics of curved surfaces the same physics that allows skyscrapers and bridges to be built of I-beams and hollow columns rather than heavy steel pillars. A flat piece of sheet metal bends easily, but if you mold it into any of several structural curves, it becomes much more rigid. Many such curves are possible, but for splinting with the SAM® SPLINT, you need only three basic curves. With these, you can convert a simple SAM® SPLINT into something so strong that people have even used it as an emergency canoe paddle or snow shovel. That's more than strong enough for any conceivable splinting need.
At the same time, the SAM® SPLINT is extremely moldable, and soft enough to cut with ordinary household scissors. The result: with the proper choice of curves outlined in the training guide, almost any bone in the body can be splinted. It's even possible to use the SAM® SPLINT to create an emergency cervical collar for neck injuries. For use by EMS Personnel, Military Medics, Athletic Trainers, Ski Patrols, Veterinarians, Wilderness Rescue Teams. This item is waterproof, reusable, lightweight and compact, radiolucent, fastens in place with tape or wrap of choice, easily cleaned and disinfected. 4 1/4" x 36" size.
