A splint is a piece of medical equipment used to keep an injured body part from moving and to protect it from any further damage.
Splinting is often used to stabilize a broken bone while the injured person is taken to the hospital for more advanced treatment. It can also be used if you have a severe strain or sprain in one of your limbs.
Placed properly, a rigid splint will help ease the pain of an injury by making sure that the wounded area doesn’t move.
