MODULAR SHOULDER BRACE
The humerus, so-called the upper arm bone, is a long bone that runs from the shoulder and scapula to the elbow. The bone is surrounded by many nerves which make our limb movable. One of the large nerves in the arm is known as the radial nerve. The humerus midshaft fracture is often associated with the radial nerve’s injury. Damage to this nerve may cause symptoms in the wrist and hand and may result in “drop arm”.
Proximal fractures are common among seniors who suffer from osteoporosis and fall onto an outstretched arm. Mid-shaft humerus fractures occur mainly in adults. They are result of e.g. collision between athletes in contact sports or car accidents. In this case, radial nerve injury and drop arm associate with mid-shaft fracture.
Most humeral fractures will heal without surgery, only with immobilization. In case of both, proximal and mid-shaft humerus fractures, we highly recommend our innovative modular shoulder brace DURO.
DURO shoulder brace treats proximal and mid-shaft humerus fractures. It provides 3 degrees of stabilization:
Our DURO shoulder brace bases on the traction movement. The humerus is immobilized and hangs along the body. Its weight causes traction which keeps the fragments of fractured bone and improves the healing. DURO brace prevents also against the forming of the false joint.
Our innovative DURO shoulder brace is made of innovative, high-quality fabric UniPren™.
UniPren™ is a 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, which prevents skin against the skin abrasions in the compression zones. The braces made of UniPren™ provide the best stabilization in the market. Self-gripping function of UniPren™ allows to fit the brace precisely. Waterproof material.
Modular arm and shoulder brace DURO immobilizes the shoulder and arm. Removable spiral bonings, placed in 8 pockets, provide smooth stabilization adjustment. The brace is made of soft, not rigid fabrics. It works with your muscles and increases the circumference due to muscles tension.
Shoulder brace DURO is equipped with special wraparound arm strap. It is an independent element for perfect circumferential adjustment. Due to this fact, our brace maintains the limb’s shape perfectly.
Additional Velcro element with wraparound strap. It provides smooth adjustment of the arm abduction – the lower strap’s location, the stronger arm adduction.
DURO shoulder brace provides complex immobilization and fracture treatment in case of humerus injury. This is the only one product on the market which ensures 3 degrees of arm and shoulder stabilization. Due to innovative design, the brace fits for both arms.
