HumerusComfort Extend is a stable and comfortable humeral fracture brace. Designed and developed according to the biomechanical requirements that the Sarmiento principle meets. The unique, overthe-shoulder textile design prohibits the brace from sliding down and makes the brace comfortable to wear. Also available in a longer model, HumerusComfort (art. no. 20220).
HumerusComfort Extend has wide circular straps which, together with the integrated plastic tiles, provide an even, circumferential compression of the soft tissue around humerus. The brace provides pain relief and allows the shoulder and elbow to move, which reduces the risk for stiffness and muscle atrophy. The brace is easy to fit and adjust. The integrated plastic tiles can easily be removed and adjusted. Skin friendly and breathable textile parts. Fits both left and right. The product is radiolucent.
