The Prometheus Pelvic Splint has been designed for pre-hospital use, and is light and easily adjusted by one person.
The Pelvic Splint consists of a central strap made of neoprene with two straps running through a central buckle. When aligned around the pelvis and a compressive force is applied, stabilisation of the pelvis can be achieved.
A neoprene band with no internal stitching, which aims to reduce the risk of pressure ulceration and tissue damage.
Tightening straps are fastened to the neoprene using secure hook material.
The device is one size fits all and can be trimmed using scissors.
The device can be applied and adjusted by a single operator.
The device allows access to the abdomen and groin for urinary catheterization and for accessing the femoral vein.
