Boxer Fracture Splint

November 8, 2017 @ 1:12 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

Boxer Fracture Splint

Did you punch something harder than your hand?  It happens.  The boxer fracture, simply put, is a broken pinky.  It’s painful and aggravating.  Generally it happens when punching something.  A splint is a much better treatment option than a cast for this type of fracture.  A splint can be removed, and washed.  Also, it’s much easier to sleep in than a plaster cast.  A splint is lower profile (smaller), and significantly more comfortable.   Absolutely worth trying.   Learn more about the TKO Boxer Fracture Splint.

Global Knee by Hely & Weber

The Global Knee by Hely & Weber

Overview

  • For Bi-Compartmental OA
  • For Tri-Compartmental OA
  • Range-of-Motion Hinges
  • Provides Stability
  • Assists in Mobility

 

Description

The Global Knee addresses pain, provides stability, and assists in mobility.  There is often a significant amount of time that passes from when a patient is told they need to have their knee replaced and the actual surgery.  This knee brace helps patients during that time.

The Patella Sling controls the patella with an inferior to superior directional pull.  There are adjustable struts that can be molded with bending irons (not included) to accommodate swollen knees and apply a varus or valgus force.  There’s a removable buttress that can be adjusted for each patient’s needs.

Reinforced hinge pockets provide durability and double as a built-in pull-up assist.  The Global knee is constructed of breathable lycra urethane laminate and spacer fabric.  The range-of-motion hinges are slightly offset to accommodate inflamed bulbous knees.

Indications

  • Arthritis
  • Global Knee Pain
  • Bi-Compartmental OA
  • Tri-Compartmental OA
