    What is the idiomatic way to say "用夾板固定手臂" in English?


    Used a splint to place the arm in position.
    Used a splint to place the arm in the right position.

    or can you just say,
    Used a splint to position the arm?

    Thank you :)

    Use a splint to support(支撑)/immobilize(固定) the (broken) arm.

    One of your sentences is also good with a slight modification:

    "Used a splint to place keep the arm in position."
