A splint was an ancient medical concept that uses two flat pieces of wood or plastic, wrapped with a bandage to keep a broken bone immobile. According to Doctor Katherine Pulaski, it was a time-honored way of practicing medicine "with your head, your heart, and your hands." (TNG: "Contagion")
The crew of the USS Enterprise fashioned a splint to hold the bone while they carried the miniaturized Hikaru Sulu to sickbay after he fell from his controls and broke his leg. (TAS: "The Terratin Incident")
