Forearm Volar Cockup Splint Kit - OrthoTape
Everything you need in a splint kit to make the Volar Cockup Wrist Splint. Our OrthoTape Padded Synthetic Pre-Cut Splint material is a unique quick setting splint system that already has padding built-in. No need to add extra padding or stockinette to make the splint.

Allow 5-7 minutes for the splint to set and solidify.
Volar splinting is a technique for handling traumatic and non-traumatic injuries of the hand and wrist. The splint immobilizes and supports the metacarpals and carpals permitting room for swelling. The splint can be easily removed to examine wounds if necessary.
What is a volar splint used for?
The forearm volar slab splint also known as the cockup splint is a non-circumferential synthetic fiberglass shell used to temporarily immobilize fractures and soft tissue injuries of the wrist and forearm. It is used to protect the patient until a cast is applied or until surgical treatment is obtained. It can also be used for sprains and strains of the wrist.
