TLC Foot Splint
The TLC® Foot Splint is ergonomically designed to correspond with the natural bend in an infant’s ankle to stabilize the joint when a foot site is required for IV therapy. It can be used medially or laterally on the right or left foot and provides access to the greater saphenous vein, dorsal arch, and surrounding veins on the top of the foot. An I.V. House UltraDome® or I.V. House UltraDressing® will help anchor the foot to the TLC Foot Splint and protect the IV site from newborns and infants kicking their own feet.
