An interesting alternative to plaster

For fractures or to stabilize a limb after surgery, your doctor may recommend an orthosis to immobilize the fractured limb.

The walking boot (Aircast)

Well known to be particularly disabling, the cast can very well be replaced by a walking boot for the treatment of simple ankle and foot fractures. The walking boot has many advantages, including the fact that it can be temporarily removed for reasons of hygiene, comfort, care and rehabilitation. In addition, pneumatic balloons allow the boot to be adjusted as the swelling decreases.

The moulded wrist orthosis

The moulded wrist orthosis is often used to complete the healing of a fracture and to gradually resume its activities. Lighter and less cumbersome than plaster, it allows the rehabilitation process to begin sooner. It adapts perfectly to the morphology of the wrist and provides an advantage in terms of hygiene. It is made of thermoplastic moulded directly on the patient.

Cervical corsets and cervical collars

Used when a vertebra fracture occurs, these orthoses allow the patient to move safely. Cervical corsets and cervical collars ensure effective healing of the bill without the risk of aggravating the injury. Although they may seem cumbersome, their therapeutic benefits are considerable.
