What Are Air Splints?

Urias® Stroke Rehabilitation Air Splints

Urias® Air Splints are made from flexible PVC and are inflated by mouth to a maximum pressure of 40 mm Hg. The choice of air splint or therapy tool is dependent on the level of motor recovery, performance capability of the patient and the specific task or activity. They are inexpensive and easy to apply.

Based on the principles of PANat (PRO-Active approach to Neuro-rehabilitation integrating Urias® Johnstone air splints and other therapy tools.), monitoring change and increasing awareness of the hemiplegic side are important aspects when integrating specific air splints into the individual’srehabilitation programme. Nurses and carers are taught how to apply the air splints and support the client out of therapy sessions and at home.
