Depending on area protocol, the splint will be applied by a certified EMT according to the injury sustained by the patient. This product is designed to aid in pre hospital immobilization on a very large number of injuries. Its exact method of application is dependent on the type of injury and the person applying the splint. Typically, it is formed to contour the injured limb to support and protect the patient. It is then wrapped with a bandage or first aid tape, depending on the preference of the first responder. This is an easy means to secure the splint effectively. Removal can be done carefully with scissors, cutting the tape away and then gently pulling the splint off the patient.
