This new addition to the FASPLINT® family of products provides fast, effective and comfortable stabilization at a budget friendly price. Designed to be used in conjunction with any rigid patient transfer device like a backboard or a CombiCarrierII®, this splint provides spinal splinting from the head to the hips. In contrast to conventional methods, the FASPLINT HALFBACK® stabilizes the patient’s head, neck and torso as one unit.
This vacuum splint molds to the exact shape of each patient’s body to support and restrict movement without applying pressure that can lead to pressure sores and soft tissue damage. The FASPLINT HALFBACK is ideal for transporting seniors, patients with kyphosis whose spine curvature does not allow them to lie flat on a board, elderly patients with hip fractures, pediatric patients who need additional torso support and any patient with a suspected spinal injury. The smaller profile, tapered design allows it to be rolled or folded for compact storage. The FASPLINT HALFBACK is the most cost-effective way to treat patients without sacrificing the best in care.
