SAM Splint Soft Shell
Exceptionally comfortable and versatile, strong and malleable like the SAM® SPLINT, the Soft Shell® Splint is designed for quick-and-easy application when a patient needs to wear a forearm splint for more than a few hours or even several weeks. The soft aluminum core allows it to be molded to fit the patient’s hand, wrist, and forearm. Additional versatility is provided by the fact that the aluminum core of the Soft Shell® Splint is thicker on one end than on the other, making it the only splint that allows two levels of rigidity.
For normal uses, the thinner, less-rigid end (labeled “firm”) is placed under the wrist. When greater resistance to wrist motion is needed, the orientation can be reversed, with the “extra firm” end placed beneath the wrist instead. Add in the comfort of an open-cell foam interior covered in terry cloth and you have the most versatile forearm splint available today—an easy, economical replacement for old-fashioned plaster, fiberglass, and thermoplastic splints. Better yet, it's washable (air dry, do not put in heated dryer). It comes in three sizes.
