Key Material Benefits

TailorSplint is the most versatile Rolyan splinting material because it does not exhibit any characteristic extremes. This allows the clinician, whether novice or expert, to feel comfortable while molding it.



Handling

Resistance to stretch: Moderate

Controlled stretch and the ability to handle with moderate pressure. It will not stretch out of shape when removed from splint bath.

Conformability: Moderate/Maximum

Conforms to surface contours and detail when force is applied for additional clinician control. Moderate degree of drape.

Memory: Minimum

Ability to be reheated and reshaped but will not return to original shape.

Bonding: Coated

Create a temporary by pinching together heated material; however, it will come apart when cooled. Form a permanent bond by scrubbing off the coating or removing it with a bond solvent.



Physical

Colors: Assorted

Beige, charcoal or blue

Thickness: Assorted

Available in the following sheet thicknesses: 1/8" (3.2 mm), 1/16" (1.6 mm) and 3/32" (2.4 mm).

Appearance: Opaque when heated



Hardened Splint

Rigidity: Moderate/Maximum (52.7 kpsi*)

Retains shape without reinforcement.

Rolyan TailorSplint™ Thermoplastic Splinting Material

Overview

TailorSplint™,the most versatile and popular Rolyan splinting material, has the perfect balance between conformability and resistance to stretch. The moderate resistance to stretch gives the clinician good control, and it will not stretch out of shape when removed from the splint bath, making it an excellent choice for medium and large splints. The high level of conformability provides detail when needed, perfect for smaller splints. When cooled, TailorSplint creates a strong, rigid splint that is resistant to dents, cracks, and breaks.

Note: Overheating splinting materials increases the draping/stretching characteristics; allow material to cool slightly before handling to avoid excess stretching.

Indications

Splinting materials are intended to be used for fabrication of custom-molded rigid splints, orthoses, and adaptive equipment.

Best uses include:

  • Finger splints
  • Hand splints
  • Wrist splints
  • Elbow splints for flexion
  • Dynamic splints
  • Neck collars
  • Foot drop splints
  • Splints for spasticity
  • Carpal tunnel splints

  • Splints for arthritis
  • Flexor tendon repair splints
  • Back supports
  • Knee splints for immobilization
  • Shoulder splints
  • Foot orthotics

Care & Cleaning

,Store at temperatures between 40° and 90°F (4° and 32°C) and less than 65 percent relative humidity. Avoid prolonged exposure to light, especially ultraviolet. Avoid exposure to corrosive and ethylene oxide fumes.

Formed splints will lose their shape in temperatures over 135°F(57°C) and should be kept away from sources of heat such as ovens, hot water, and car windows.

Clean splint with soap and lukewarm water. Allow splint and straps to dry thoroughly before reapplication.

Precautions for finished orthoses
Splint adjustments are to be made only by a health care professional, who is responsible for providing wearing instructions and precautions to other practitioners, care providers and the patient. If unusual swelling, skin discoloration or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a health care professional.
