Cellacast® Xtra Splint
Stabilising Casting Tape
The right type of support for every need
Thin, lightweight and stable — with Cellacast® Xtra this is no contradiction but a fact. As a modern synthetic casting tape, it provides secure stabilisation.
Flexibility and comfort
The Ready-for-use Padded Splint meets users’ individual requirements and is comfortable against patients’ skin. Different widths, available as pre-cuts or by the meter in practical cardboard dispensers, make for economic use of the materials. A resealable, airtight foil pouch prevents drying out. The splint is secured with a conforming bandage such as Mollelast® haft and can be removed easily, if necessary (e.g. to inspect the wound). The fibreglass core, which is composed of seven layers, provides the required stability.
Stability - light and easy
A high degree of stability is required of casts, especially when treating fractures and after surgery. Lightweight casts are more comfortable and restrict patients the least. Cellacast® Xtra is a lightweight casting tape which provides the desired level of stability in only a few wraps. This makes it both sturdy and lightweight enough to be worn comfortably.
Mouldable to any body contour
The casting tape can be moulded to any body contour — even difficult-to-wrap areas around joints — and is easy and quick to apply. In addition, this material has excellent lamination properties, making it attractive in terms of cost savings as well.
For reinforcement: Cellacast® Xtra Splint
Cellacast® Xtra is also available as a splint. This product can be used not just to apply splints but also to reinforce individual synthetic casts.
