Sam Splint XL

De SAM Splint is de meest verkochte spalk ter wereld, wordt gebruikt door o.a. medische hulpverleners, buitensporters en NASA en is gebaseerd op het oeroude principe: Curves are strong. De SAM Splint is gemaakt van een dun laagje aluminium, omgeven door schuimrubber en is zeer buigzaam. Door de SAM Splint te buigen wordt deze enorm stijf en kan elke fractuur of geblesseerde ledemaat worden gespalkt. Er zijn drie basisprincipes voor het gebruik van de SAM Splint. Hiermee kan een zeer flexibel en buigzaam stukje aluminium worden gevouwen tot een product dat zelfs door mensen is gebruikt als peddel of sneeuwschep in noodsituaties. Tenslotte is de SAM Splint makkelijk te vervormen en zacht genoeg om in elke gewenste maat te knippen.

The Story of the SAM Splint

Dr. Sam Scheinberg knows all about splints and the variety of emergency applications in which a splint might be necessary. As a trauma surgeon during the Vietnam War and as a board certified orthopedic surgeon on the Oregon Coast, he saw plenty of fractures and broken bones.

Vietnam demonstrated how woefully inadequate splints of the 1960s and \\\'70s were. Bulky constructs of wire, cardboard, and all-too-easily punctured air splints, they couldn\\\'t be reused, never seemed to properly fit, and frequently caused more harm than good. In Vietnam, field medics often ignored them and substituted even more old-fashioned techniques, such as lashing poles and branches (or even parts of a rifle) to the injured limb.

On his return to the U.S., Sam pondered this problem. He wondered if there was a way to make a light-weight but strong, reliable, and reusable splint. Relaxing after a 24 hour shift, Sam was playing with the foil wrapper of the gum he was chewing, curling it around his finger. In an "Aha!" moment, he realized that the foil, while flimsy in its normal state, was much stronger when bent into a "U" shaped curve.

Intrigued, Sam obtained a larger piece of aluminum and began work on his first prototype. He found that a thin sheet of soft aluminum curved in cross section into the shape of a "C", a "Reverse-C", or a "T", became remarkably rigid. With the right padding materials, Sam realized it would make an exceptional splint. Having satisfied his curiosity, Sam nearly set the project aside, but his wife wouldn\\\'t let him. Sam later remarked, "That was the luckiest ten minutes of nagging in my life."

It took years of meticulous experimentation, but by 1985, Sam and Cherrie were selling the first SAM® Splints (structural, aluminum, malleable). Today, the SAM® Splint is the most popular emergency splint in the world, favored by emergency crews, armed services, outdoor enthusiasts, and rescue teams. The SAM Splint can even be found aboard the Space Shuttle and on Himalayan expeditions.
