4 Long Arm Posterior Splint
Indications Elbow and forearm fractures: Distal humerus Both-bone forearm Unstable proximal radius or ulna

5 Double Sugar Tong Indications Elbow and forearm fracture
Why do we use prefer this over posterior splint? Prohibits flexion/extension and pronatio /supination more so If you have the time use this splint over the long arm posterior splint 10 90

6 Wrist Splint Indications Soft tissue hand and wrist injuries
Why don’t we use this for radius and ulnar fractures? Because the patient can still supinate and pronate

7 Forearm Sugar Tong Indications
Distal radius and ulnar fractures Unlike wrist splint, this prevents pronation and supination and immobilizes elbow.

8 Posterior Short Leg Splint
