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.

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.

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.
