The sugar-tong or reverse sugar tong forearm splint is a long U-shaped splint that immobilizes the injured forearm and wrist and prevents rotation and wrist motion. The sugar tong heal the fractured bones by keeping the fractured ends together and in alignment. It got its name because of its long shape and similar look to the utensil used to pickup sugar cubes.
