The Hartwell FASPLINT® Semi-Disposable Vacuum Splint uses vacuum technology just like the Hartwell EVAC-U-SPLINT® Extremity Splints. From dislocated shoulders to angulated wrist fractures, simply grab your vacuum splint, place it around the injured area, evacuate the air, and you're done! And if equipment retrieval is a major factor facing your department, then the FASPLINT is ideal. With as little as six uses before being discarded, the cost is less than $4.95 per use for the medium-size FASPLINT.
Molds to exact shape of injury site without applying circumferential pressure
Reduces nerve, tissue and vessel damage
Can be evacuated using the same EVAC-U-SPLINT manual pump with a tapered adapter tip or a portable suction unit
If a FASPLINT is lost, flies away on a helicopter, or is too soiled to be used again, the replacement cost is minimal
Can be used for leg fractures, dislocated shoulders, knee injuries, wrist fractures, infant and pediatric immobilization, hip support, padding under the knees, temporary cervical support, and much more
Designed for the really messy trauma call or those situations when equipment retrieval is difficult, the FASPLINT ® provides optimum immobilization at a very affordable price.
This semi-disposable vacuum splint provides secure immobilization without circumferential pressure, eliminating the potential for tissue, vessel and nerve damage. Unlike air and board splints, the FASPLINT molds to the contours of the patient’s injury, so even difficult fractures and dislocations can be stabilized easily and quickly with a level of comfort that is unmatched by any other splinting technology. If ease of use and quality care are important issues for your service, then the FASPLINT deserves serious consideration.

Current users say the FASPLINT is one of the most versatile tools they have ever had on their rig. It’s great for simple and angulated extremity fractures, dislocated shoulders and hip injuries, pediatric immobilization and even a combination head immobilizer and backboard pad. By filling the voids underneath the patient and molding to the contours of the patient’s head and torso, the FASPLINT provides a firm yet comfortable head and back support.
