Scaphoid Fracture



OrthopaedicsandTrauma.com asked John Hardy, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon about the use of these wrist braces in patient rehabilitating from scaphoid fracture or surgery for scaphoid fracture.

Mr John Hardy said: "I use these when there is evidence of fracture healing but the fracture is not healed and I want to get the patient out of plaster but continue with a support that is removable for physiotherapy and hygeine. I was recently asked by a patient of mine how to care for this product. He was an artist and had a major exhibition coming up. He was comfortable painting in oils in his Comfortform Wrist Brace but wanted to protect it from his paints so that he could continue to wear the splint in public. I showed him how to cover the brace in a double Tubigrip while at work".
