GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION


The main component of the patented Chrisofix® splints is a thin, corrugated aluminium core covered with non allergenic polyethylene foil- and cotton-laminated polyethylene coat at the out- and insight, respectively. Due to perforation, the splints are breathable. They can be applied and perfectly fitted to the injured body part within one minute, without water or heat. The Chrisofix® splints ensure a semicircular stable fixation. The light and comfortable splints limit the mobility of the injured body part to the necessary minimum. They are transparent to X-rays.

The Chrisofix® splints are medical devices and not working tools. Damages of the splint resulted from inappropriate use, will be excluded from the product guarantee.

 

POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN USING THE SPLINTS

 

  • For the first application of the splints (except for first aid cases), professionally competent personal might be requested.
  • The splints are not sterile; do not use on an open wound.
  • Except for first aid cases, splints without a textile lining should only be used on bandaged body parts. Otherwise should be used the padding if supplied with the splint, or an optional material to dress the injured body-part (e.g. tubular bandage).
  • The ready to use Chrisofix® splints can be adjusted directly on the injured body part. When bending and forming, counter-pressure is necessary. Only the rough adjustment must not be performed on any injured body part, but on an adequate model (e.g. on the non-injured part of the body).
  • Fine adjustments – e.g. after soft tissue swelling is reduced, re-adjustments can be made without removing the splint.
  • To avoid injury from sharp metallic edges, the splints must only be bent/adjusted by carefully pressing and never cut.
  • The splints can be fixed into place with optional materials or with the bandage supplied with the splint. If necessary, use only skin friendly, non-aggressive (non-acrylic) adhesive tapes.
  • Frequent bending and stretching of the splints can damage its stability; they must be restricted to the necessary minimum.
  • All Chrisofix® splints and padding are washable with neutral soap water. The splints must be dried at room temperature or a hair dryer at low temperature; infra-red lamp, a microwave oven or laundry dryer must never be used.
