Thomas splint

Availability: In stock


The Thomas splint is a common piece of equipment in emergency departments and orthopedic units in hospitals worldwide. Its basic design has changed little since its first description by Hugh Owen Thomas was published in 1875. We have reviewed the origins of the Thomas splint as a means of correction of deformities of the lower limb and its evolution through both World Wars into an essential item for the management of trauma of the lower limb.
