The Soft Arm Splint is used to straightening a contracted arm.
It holds an arm straight, but the foam and soft cover is more gentle on frail skin.
It allows some bending if forced, but will straighten a relaxed arm.
We use a soft padded material for this product. This is soft against the skin. The fastening mechanism is strong Hook & Loop Tape.
Consult your healthcare professional to make sure this product is right for your situation.
