Don t Let an Injury Ruin Your Next Outing
The SAM Splint is built from a thin core of soft aluminum alloy sandwiched between two layers of closed cell foam. Bent into a simple curve, it becomes extremely strong and supportive for any injured limb. The SAM Splint is lightweight: transportable and easy to pack and carry (4oz), Flexible in application: One device immobilizes nearly any bone in the body, affixes with any tape or wrap. Reusable: Wipes clean and is easily re-shapeable for another application.
How THE SAM Splint Works
The SAM Splint is based on an ancient construction principle: curves are strong. The same physics that allows skyscrapers and bridges to be built of I-beams and hollow columns rather than heavy steel pillars makes the SAM Splint strong. A flat piece of sheet metal bends easily, but if you mold it into any of several structural curves, it becomes much more rigid. Many such curves are possible, but for Splinting with the SAM Splint, you need only three basic curves, which are explained in the included DVD.
