EXOS Fracture Brace System overview
Care and cleaning instructions for your brace
It is common for children’s fractures to be cast with plaster for a few weeks and then go into a more “user-friendly” fracture brace once initial healing has occurred. Some fractures can be braced from the start, avoiding plaster altogether, this is decided by your doctor.
Humerus (upper arm) Fracture brace
Many humeral fractures will heal without requiring an operation. A humeral fracture brace can assist in the healing process of a humeral shaft fracture. These braces can be a partially or fully customised depending on the individual patient.
Clavicular (collarbone) fractures
In some fractures of the collarbone, the treatment involves using a type of support called a clavicle strap. This retracts the shoulders so that the ends of the collarbone fracture heal together, rather than pushing past each other.
A sling may also be used in the treatment of clavicle fractures. Sometimes a swathe (material that goes around the upper arm and body) is used to prevent shoulder motion in conjunction with the sling.
