Posterior Sprained Ankle Splint Kit - OrthoTape
Everything you need in a splint kit to make a Posterior Sprained Ankle 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 for a sprained ankle. Simply remove from pouch, wet, trim, and form around the patient's ankle sprain. Then apply our self-adhesive bandages included with your kit to hold the ankle splint in place. Allow 5-7 minutes for the splint to set and solidify.
A posterior sprained ankle splint goes on the back of the leg whereas a stirrup ankle splint fits around the sides of the lower legs and the foot like a stirrup. The stirrup splint prevents inward and outward movement at the ankle (side to side)(inversion and eversion) and the posterior ankle splint keeps the ankle at a 90-degree angle (top to bottom). Sometimes the posterior splint and stirrup splint is applied together for even more support.
