Non-stock item Non-stock items are filled as a special order and cannot be cancelled or returned, unless faulty or not fit for the purpose described.
Easy-to-fit Urias Pressure Splints provide therapeutic, even pressure on arms, legs, hands and feet when used for neurological rehabilitation.
Made of a double layer of washable PVC sheeting, each splint features a plastic zipper closure and is transparent to facilitate positioning. They are applied to a client’s limb and then inflated. During inflation the soft inner layer moulds exactly to the limb, providing all-over, even pressure when inflation is completed. Inflation can be accomplished orally, with the use of a personal/disposable mouthpiece and a mouthpiece filter, or with the Hand Pump with Safety Valve (not included). NOTE: Inflation pressures should not exceed 40mmHg.
Urias pressure splints benefits:
• Counter abnormal tone development - Applied following brain injury due to trauma or strokes, these splints inhibit spasticity, assist movement patterns, expedite weight bearing and reduce oedema. The dynamic force of these pressure splints encourages sensory recovery by stimulating proprioceptors.
• Inhibit development of contractures in neurological disorders - Where a contracture is already present, Urias Pressure Splints may be used to stretch it, gradually reducing the deformity.
• Available in sizes for adults, infants and children in a variety of lengths. To determine correct splint size, measure the length of the extremity and refer to the charts below.
• Single or Double Chamber Splints. Single chamber splints allow all over even pressure. Double chamber splints off er varying levels of pressure in two separate individually inflated chambers for specific management of extensor or flexor tone.
