Thermoplastic
 

The wide variation in size and shape of animal patients makes splinting a challenge. Thermoplastic sheets offer the ideal solution. These sheets are widely used with human patients to make custom splints and braces that partially or totally immobilize a body part. Now, these splinting materials are adapted for use with animal patients.

 

Custom fitted splints and braces are formed from thin, flat, thermoplastic sheets. Once heated in hot water, these sheets become soft and pliable. Then, they are trimmed and molded to any part of the body for a perfect custom fit. Hook and loop straps hold the splint in place, and padding/liner materials increase patient comfort.

 

These splints are adaptable, inexpensive, and relatively easy to make. The 1/8" thick thermoplastic sheet offers superior rigidity and strength (rated at 180,000 psi tensile strength), making it ideal for weight-bearing splints in small and large animals. The 1/16" thick thermoplastic sheet drapes easily to contour small, recessed areas, making it ideal for smaller animals, birds, and exotic patients.
