What are Velcro straps used for?
It is very easy to add velcro straps to a POP splint.
With use of these velcro straps, it becomes convenient to reapply the splint in proper position when it becomes loose. This can also be done by the patient themselves. It also makes frequent change of dressing more comfortable for patient and surgeon. Premade splints of thermoplastic material are available with velcro straps, which provide the same advantages, but they are not custom-made for a patient’s anatomy or particular condition. Custom-made thermoplastic splints are made with velcro straps, but it requires a therapist to measure and ensure a good fitting. POP splints with velcro straps can provide an effective alternative in such conditions.
