What is RHINO Splint？
The RHINO Splint is built from a thin, light core of aluminum alloy which is then sandwiched between two layers of closed-cell foam. Unroll it from its package and it is extremely pliable. But bend it into any of three simple curves, and it becomes extremely strong and supportive - adequate for stabilizing any fractured or injured limb.
A well-formed RHINO Splint is more than strong enough for any conceivable splinting need yet extremely moldable, and soft enough to cut with ordinary household scissors.
With the proper choice of curves outlined in the training guide, almost any bone in the body can be splinted. It's even possible to use the RHINO Splint to create an emergency cervical collar for neck injuries.
The core of the Splint is a long rectangle of "O" temper, ultra-thin, aluminum alloy. The covering layers are made of dermatologically safe closed-pore foam that is latex-free.
