The SAM Splint can bend into any simple curve, becoming exponentially stronger and more supportive. SAM Splint is globally acclaimed by emergency care providers, outdoor enthusiasts, the US military, and even NASA.
SAM Splint leverages the revolutionary C-Curve Principle to mould its foam and aluminium layers into structural arcs. This makes it strong enough for pre – or post-cast care while remaining lighter and more transportable than traditional splints that rely on heavy, rigid materials. Bend it back into its original form to stow away or remould for a separate injury.
Cut to size
SAM Splint’s two layers of closed-cell foam and its aluminium interior can be cut with ordinary scissors to adapt to any size requirements.
Flat, O-temper aluminium inside the splint’s outer layers moulds easily, allowing for a wide spectrum of applications.
Exterior closed-pore foam can be cleaned and disinfected with bleach and water for reuse.
Medical professionals are able to take X-Rays and CT-scans without removing the splint from the fractured or injured limb.
Designed to function across the spectrum of global temperatures
Substantially lighter than plaster or fibreglass splints, SAM Splint requires only a wrap or tape to secure an injured bone or stabilise a joint.
The 3 basic bends
Without any bends, the SAM Splint is completely malleable, to be shaped however the user desires. When you make a curve or fold anywhere across its longitudinal axis, it becomes rigid and suitable for splinting. With the following 3 bends; C-Curve, Reverse C-Curve and T-Curve, the strength and rigidity allow any bone to splinted appropriately.
C-Curve – Strong
This curve immediately adds strength and rigidity to the splint. It can be done by placing your thumbs in the centre as a place and pulling in the edges to create a shallow C.
Reverse C-Curve – Stronger
Created by firstly making the C-Curve, then bending back both edges in a reverse direction to add additional strength.
T-Curve – Strongest
Fold the splint in half lengthways then bend half of each side back in the opposite direction to create a ‘T’ shaped beam. Bending the splint this way adds exceptional strength to the splint.
