The Hartwell Medical FASPLINT® uses vacuum technology just like our EVAC-U-SPLINT® extremity splints. From dislocated shoulders to angulated wrist fractures. Simply place it around the injured area, evacuate the air, and you’re done! If equipment retrieval is a factor facing your department, then the FASPLINT is ideal. With as little as six uses before being discarded, the cost is less than $4.95 per use for the medium-size FASPLINT.
The uses beyond extremities include pediatric immobilization. A medium size FASPLINT can be formed into a full body vacuum splint for an infant. A large FASPLINT can effectively work for immobilization on a small child too. For many agencies and departments this simplifies pre-hospital transport and provides peace of mind for the EMS crew.
- Molds to exact shape of injury site without applying circumferential pressure
- Reduces nerve, tissue and vessel damage
- Can be evacuated using the same EVAC-U-SPLINT manual pump with a tapered adapter tip or a portable suction unit
- If a FASPLINT is lost, flies away on a helicopter, or is too soiled to be used again, the replacement cost is minimal
- Can be used for leg fractures, dislocated shoulders, knee injuries, wrist fractures, infant and pediatric immobilization, hip support, padding under the knees, temporary cervical support, and much more
