Boxer / Ulnar Gutter Splint Kit - OrthoTape
Everything you need in a splint kit to make the Boxer / Ulnar Gutter Splint. Our OrthoTape Padded Synthetic Pre-Cut Splint material is a unique quick setting splint system that already has the padding built in. No need to add extra padding or stockinette to make the splint. Simply remove from pouch, wet, trim and form around the patient's limb. Then apply our self adhesive bandages included with your kit to hold the splint in place. Allow 5-7 minutes for the splint to set and solidify.
One simple and proven method for immobilizing boxer's fractures is the ul- nar gutter splint. The splint effectively immobilizes the patient's fourth and fifth fingers, the fourth and fifth meta- carpophalangeal (MCP) joints, and the wrist. ... The splint is easier to apply than a short arm cast with an outrigger. (https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3810/psm.1999.01.620?journalCode=ipsm20)
