Vacuum splint, also named vacuum transport stretcher, is an emergency immobilization device like a small vacuum mattress that is used in emergency immobilization as a temporary splint. Vacuum splints operate by extracting air from the splint itself to enable the thousands of polystyrene balls inside the splint to mold around the injured body part similar to an orthopedic cast. Vacuum splints are primarily used by paramedics to splint trauma-related injuries, joint dislocation, subluxation, and extremity fractures. The main function of the vacuum splint is supplying immobilization and short distance patient transporting. The material is TPU. TPU vacuum splint advantages are durable, soft and strong. The vacuum splint advantages include the ability to provide support whilst relieving pressure at the injury site. Vacuum splints are compatible with X-Ray, CT and MRI.
Vacuum Mattress Splint can be used in first aid of pre-hospital, earthquake, airport, mine, traffic accident, sports and military to transport, especially when the rescue space is constricted, such as mountains, caves, and canyons. It always provides fast, effective and comfortable immobilization for the entire patient. It also features lightweight and portable for ease of carrying.
Vacuum immobilizer, also named vacuum splints, includes leg vacuum splint, arm splint, and head vacuum immobilizer. This vacuum splint set includes extremities splints, head immobilizer, and extrication device. It is used to fix and immobilize patients suspected of having fractures and hurt of broken extremities. The principle of vacuum immobilization has been known for many years in the emergency medicine and first aid fields, and it is more and more pop in the world.
This vacuum mattress splint is a widely used medical instrument applied for the immobilization of patients, especially in the case of a vertebra, pelvis or limb trauma (especially for femur trauma). It is also used for manual transportation of patients for short distances. Equipped with large padded handles, the emergency responder is able to move and transfer patients more securable and stable.
These air splints are used to immobilize arm and leg fractures, with uniform pressure on the limb and to guarantee stability and comfort for the patient. This set of air splint set is made of transparent PVC comfortably shapes itself to the contour of the limb.
The vacuum splint has been shown to be a simple, safe and effective method of emergency splinting of fractured extremities. The ease of application of this splint makes it especially effective for the emergency splinting of fractures in children. It is designed to allow patient immobilization in any position.
This vacuum splint set is designed to provide maximum support with minimum effort. The complete set includes three splints in different sizes and all of them are made of durable vinyl coated nylon that is supple enough to be molded around an injured extremity.
