The TLC® Wrist Splint is ergonomically designed for patients from pediatrics through adults to hold the wrist, forearm, and hand in the ideal position for IV therapy. Traditional armboards are flat and opaque, unnecessarily stretching out ligaments and obscuring the nurse’s view of the IV insertion site. The unique openings on the TLC Wrist Splint allow nurses to Touch, Look, and Compare the arm with the IV catheter to check for early signs of complications such as infiltration and extravasation, which can lead to compartment syndrome.
