The DARCO Posterior Splint is comprised of a firm plastic shell lined with a soft dense foam. The splint is available in two angular positions (90° and 110°). This allows the caregiver to provide individual stabilization to the patient appropriate to the indication.

The splint is light weight for easy use and anatomically formed to create an optimized fit. At the same time, it is inherently stable without being too rigid.

Velcro® strips along the back of the splint allow for slip-free secure bandaging.

The soft closed-cell foam liner offers the patient a comfortable fit, even when used for longer periods of time.

The DARCO Posterior Splint is a ready-to-use backing splint that can be used in any care phase (even during radiological examinations).

The DARCO Posterior Splint was developed by German foot and ankle surgeons along with orthopedic technicians in order to adapt to the individual needs of patients and health care providers.

Direct postoperative use in the operating room means that tedious plastering or warming and shaping of a splint is no longer required. This dramatically reduces the costly minutes in the post-surgical phase.

The DARCO Posterior Splint is fitted after the surgical wound has been dressed. Placed on the posterior side of the lower leg and then secured with conventional gauze bandages. It is recommended to begin winding the bandage from the plantar aspect of the splint in an upward direction from distal to proximal.

Please note: Under specific situations; patients with a shortened calf muscle, notable Haglund'sdeformity or a posterolateral exostosis, the DARCO Posterior Splint may potentially aggravate the area and cause pressure points.

Note: an inexpensive pad is often used in practice to shield and protect the Splint from bodily fluids.
