Elbow fractures in children
Everyone remembers the active childhood. Huge abrasions on the skin was a reality. Sometimes, together with abrasions come fractures. In most cases, elbow fractures in children are caused by a fall on an outstretched arm, e.g. in a playground or by a direct blow or fall on the olecranon. Many elbow injuries occur on the playground when children lose their grip on the monkey bars or in sport, e.g. when child falls from the bicycle.
Childhood elbow fractures are about 10% of all childhood fractures. In many cases conservative treatment is enough and surgery is not necessary. But, fractures are also connected with soft tissues, nerves and tendons, which may impact on loss of joint mobility. Due to this fact, fast treatment and intervention are necessary. Instead of heavy cast, try our innovative, lightweight elbow splint FIX-KG-19 with range of motion adjustment in every 15 degrees.
FIX-KG-19 elbow splint is an excellent option for elbow immobilization. Light weight, anatomic shaped splint provides perfect stabilization and is comfortable for little child. Our innovative drop-lock 1R-01 provides range of motion adjustment in every 15 degrees without additional tools. Magnet and steel pins provides fast application and adjustment. The splint fits on the upper limb perfectly, because of anatomic design.
Soft parts of the brace are made of innovative fabric UniPren™ and UniTape™.
Wrap around straps with Velcro closures make the brace easy to put and remove.
UniPren™ is a universal 3-layer material consisting of an external elastic polyamide cover knit with a self-adhesive function, an internal neoprene foam core and an elastic jersey cover knit. This material is characterized by softness and very high flexibility. A very important advantage of this material is the fact that it is not a knitted product, it does not have thick fibers, so that the weaves of the material do not imprint on the patient's skin and do not cause abrasionsin places of high compression. Products made of UniPren™ are the strongest and most effective stabilizing orthoses available on the market. Self-adhesive function, the raw material makes it much easier to use.
Our kids elbow brace FIX-KG-19 provides full day and night stabilization and immobilization. UniPren is a waterproof fabric, your child may take a shower without removing the brace from the limb.
