Ankle Fracture


OrthopaedicsandTrauma.com asked Consultant Foot and Ankle Surgeon Stephen Hepple about the indications for this brace. He said: "This is a useful product when patients are not getting on with plaster cast or there is a reason for frequent monitoring of the skin of a patient with an ankle injury such as in diabetic patients or patients with a peripheral neuropathy."
