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 are inflated. During inflation the soft inner layer molds 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 Jobst Hand Bulb and Hand Bulb Adapter. NOTE: Inflation pressures should not exceed 40 mmHg. All URIAS Pressure Splints are latex free.
Counter abnormal tone development - Applied following brain damage due to strokes, these splints inhibit spasticity, assist movement patterns, expedite weight bearing and reduce edema. 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.
Apply as cold packs - Just fill with water and refrigerate.
Available in sizes for adults and children in a variety of lengths - To determine correct splint size, measure the length of the extremity and refer to the charts below. Chart measurements are splint sizes before inflation.
