Advantages of Roll Splints:
- The roll splint is an external fixation apparatus with good elasticity, toughness, and plasticity and adapted to the shape of the limb. The starting point of roll splint fixation of fracture is the functional requirements of the limb, based on the principle of human kinematics, through the action of appropriate traction and counter-traction, to achieve anatomical repositioning of the fracture, braking, and release of muscle spasm, etc. It is commonly used clinically for limb fractures. The advantage is that the fracture can be kept in good alignment while using the force generated by muscle activity to correct the residual displacement.
Precautions for Roll Splints:
- Inform the patient of the purpose and significance of fracture fixation splinting.
- Informing the patient of the significance of elevating the affected limb and the points to observe the color, temperature, sensation, swelling, and movement of the affected limb.
- To observe whether the splint and pressure pad move or fall off, and to keep the splint appropriately loose and tight, generally so that it can move up and down 1 cm after lifting the straps with both hands.
- There are many causes of pain after splint fixation, so patients should report to the doctor promptly to identify the cause of pain and give symptomatic treatment when pain occurs.
- Pay attention to keeping the splint clean and not to be contaminated by stool, urine, or food to prevent stains from irritating the skin or deforming the splint, and replace it promptly if it is inadvertently contaminated.
- Instruct them to carry out functional exercises step by step. Once the fracture is repositioned and fixed, the correct functional exercise of the affected limb and the whole body should be carried out to promote blood circulation and lymphatic fluid return through muscle stretching and flexion/extension movements of joints other than the fixed joint, which is beneficial to fracture healing.
How to use the Rolled Splint:
- When using the splint, select the appropriate type of splint fixation belt according to the site of the fracture and the length of the limb, pull out the spare splint from the splint sleeve, place the fixation belt on the site to be fixed, and use the nylon buckles sub-buckle to align and press the female buckle on the appropriate site. If the limb to be fixed is thick and thin, the upper end of the Velcro buckle can be aligned with the row of the female buckle, and the lower end is diagonal to the second or third row of the female buckle so that the fixed belt will naturally form a shape matching the fixed limb. Then, place the splint into different splint sets as needed, and adjust the tightness by tying the free strap.
