Inflatable Cast Stabilises Injuries In Just Seconds


Multiprotector inflatable cast

The cast slips around the area of injury, like a sprain or a broken bone, and inflates in mere seconds by blowing into a long straw. A one-way valve ensures the cast stays inflated and rigid, stabilising an injury or stopping any bleeding before the injured person gets proper medical attention. And since it can be completely deflated, the cast is easy to store inside a first-aid kit. At $US47 for the the arm version and $US65 for the slightly larger leg model, it’s well worth it if you’re a stumble-prone mountaineer or an extreme athlete lacking extreme skills. [DigInfo TV]
