Care for your patient's brace



OrthopaedicsandTrauma.com asked Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon John Hardy for tips on how to care for this brace. John has these braces on the shelf for patients with wrist sprains and strains who drop into his private clinic in London

John said "This is a very good quality brace. I spend the time to advise patients on how to care for the Comfortform™ Wrist. The aluminium stay can be removed from its sleeve easily. I explain it is like removing a pillow from its pillow case. The velcro tapes of the Comfortform Wrist™ Brace are manufactured to be long to fit different wrist sizes. My patients are advised to wash the brace once or twice before trimming them to length because it takes a few days to get used to applying each velcro with the correct tightness".

Consultants in Orthopaedics and Trauma wish to avoid patient discomfort and complications like carpal tunnel syndrome and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. Therefore, following recent evidence like the research from (O'Connor D, Mullett H, Doyle M, Mofidi A, Kutty S, O'Sullivan M. Minimally displaced Colles' fractures: a prospective randomized trial of treatment with a wrist splint or a plaster cast. J Hand Surg [Br]. 2003 Feb;28(1):50-3.) they opt for a high quality removable wrist brace like the Donjoy Comfortform™ Wrist Brace .
