Musculoskeletal injuries – leg splint

The trekking poles are crossed and tied together with the cord. They create a foot bed to keep the foot in its position of function and immobilized. To keep the toes accessible, you could have removed the shoe, turned it upside down and put it between the poles. The patient’s foot would rest against the sole of the shoe. The wind jacket is used to make a stirrup to further immobilize the foot.
