Elasto-Gel Cast and Splint Padding prevents pressure sores and skin irritation that occurs under casts and splints. It prevents friction, protects and also moisturizes the skin. The padding is made of hydrogel and goes under the splint.
Directions For Use:
If using under a cast, ensure the skin is clean before applying padding.
Padding may be cut with scissors to shape accordingly.
Remove plastic film and apply first to the skin then the cast.
If a splint needs to be stabilized then the white fabric backing may be removed. To do so, moisten the fabric (using a damp cotton swab). Slowly “peel” the cloth from the gel and apply the gel pad to the patient. Then remove the clear plastic film, put the splint in place, and secure it as needed.
Cast and Splint padding may be layered for additional padding.
Do not get the padding wet.
If skin irritation occurs, stop the use of the product.
