Splint (brace) - Definition


Definition


A splint, more often called a brace in medical terms, is often a piece of rigid, or sometimes inflatable, plastic which allows the immobilization of a body part due to a suspected fracture or injury. The splint can be placed at the first medical response by the fire or medical team in the context of trauma to a limb, to keep the affected part immobilized, which has both an analgesic interest to reduce the pain, and a preventive interest to avoid a possible bone displacement in a real fracture. An x-ray or other imaging test will then confirm or eliminate the possibility of fracture. A splint can then be left for several days or weeks to hold the part stationary for the duration of healing time, whether a non-displaced fracture or ligament damage in the case of sprains.
