FOREARM FRACTURES IN CHILDREN
The forearm has 2 bones: radius and ulna. Forearm fracture is common injury in active children. It can occur everywhere: falling onto arm in the school, playing or running in the playground. Usually, it is result of direct or indirect force. The forearm fractures are often associated with a radioulnar dislocation. Sometimes, the soft tissue are injures together with fracture. In this case, the surgery is necessary, but the vast majority of forearm fractures can be treated without surgery. It is important to remember that both elbow and wrist joints should be immobilized. Our innovative pediatric elbow orthosis FIX-KG-20 is an excellent product for that.
FIX-KG-20 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.
What is more, the brace is equipped with special handgrip which reduces pronation and supination of the forearm and provides excellent bones immobilization. The hand support keeps the limb in the neutral position which is great for treatment and rehabilitation.
Soft parts of the brace are made of innovative fabric UniPren.
UniPren is universal 3-layered fabric made of external elastic polyamide self-gripping layer and internal neoprene foam with elastic jersey. Our fabric is soft and elastic and not knitted, what prevents skin against the skin abrasions in the compression zones. Every time you can reattach the soft parts of the brace and wash them for improving the comfort of use and skin’s condition.
Wrap around straps with Velcro closures make the brace easy to put and remove. Special sling supports the upper limb without encumbering the wrist and hand.
Our kids elbow orthosis FIX-KG-20 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.
