FASPLINT FULLBODY Vacuum Splint
A full body splint with vacuum pump.
The new FASPLINT FULLBODY® splint provides fast, effective and comfortable vacuum immobilization at a budget-friendly price. Using portable suction or one of Hartwell Medical’s durable vacuum pumps, it molds to the exact shape of each patient’s body to support and immobilize without applying the pressure that can lead to pressure sores and soft tissue damage. Instead of trying to fit your patient to a hard, flat backboard, you can stabilize them in the position that is most comfortable for them. This makes it ideal when transporting geriatric patients, patients with kyphosis whose spine curvature does not let them lie flat on a backboard, patients with hip fractures, patients who may be more comfortable with their knees flexed, and many more. Using orange, semi-disposable FASPLINT® material on the front and gray, durable EVAC-U-SPLINT® material on the back, this splint is designed to be both budget-friendly and re-usable. It’s the most cost-effective way to treat patients without sacrificing the best in care.
• Stabilizes a patient in the position most comfortable for them
• Ideal for Geriatric care and transport
• Provides full spinal immobilization from the head to the hips
• Alleviates pressure point pain and vastly increases patient comfort when used with any backboard, scoop stretcher or fabric flat stretcher
• Polystyrene beads insulate the patient to help maintain body temperature
• Economical, tapered design accommodates your budget and your storage space
Product DetailsThe FASPLINT FULLBODY full-length vacuum splint from Hartwell Medical stabilizes each patient in a comfortable, stable position, making it ideal for back injuries and geriatric care. The inflatable mattress molds to the exact shape of the patient’s body and provides continuous full body splinting from head to hips during patient transport. The FASPLINT FULLBODY is an ideal solution for seniors and patients with kyphosis whose spine curvature does not allow them to lie flat, or patients with hip fractures.
The product’s innovative design dampens vibrations from irregular road conditions and enables the patient’s legs to be supported in the flexed position, which many patients find to be more comfortable.
Using the FASPLINT FULLBODY Vacuum Mattress
Inflation is a simple task with this trusted medical product’s aluminum manual pump featuring foot stirrups and heavy duty dual wall braided hose. A compact vacuum pump is also available.
The FASPLINT FULLBODY also features the simple, intuitive MaxiValve which is guaranteed for the life of the product. The MaxiValve provides quick connect and disconnect, and includes a protective leashed cap. It closes with an audible click so you know it’s sealed, even in low light or conditions with poor visibility.
Supple vinyl is used on the front of the mattress to maximize the patient’s comfort, and heavy EVAC-U-SPLINT material on the backside for durability. The materials are durable and can withstand years of use, but can be easily cleaned with soap and water or a commercial cleaner/disinfectant. Always follow the specific cleaning and disinfecting practices dictated by your local Medical Director.
