Clavicula-bandage in the form of a backpack bandage
The support bandage for the clavicle was designed for the correct alignment of the shoulders after a collarbone fracture. All doctors recommend them.

Orthopedic surgeons and specialists recommend bandages of high quality and comfort for the patient. If the patient finds a comfortable orthosis, he will wear it all day. Otherwise, he puts them down after a few hours.
The bandage can be worn under or over clothing and can also be used to improve posture.
If the orthosis is too tight, it presses on the nerves of the brachial plexus and can lead to tingling in the fingers. They should then be loosened up a bit.
Numbness in the fingers is usually a temporary symptom that passes after a few days or weeks after taking off the bandage.

The supportive underarm sling is made of breathable cotton or polyester and offers maximum comfort and breathability even in warm and humid environments.
Patients appreciate that the bandage takes the tension from the AC joint and shifts it towards the midline of the body.
The AC Acromio ProCare bandage is the favorite among physicians for use in AC distortions.
The orthosis stabilizes the shoulder, upper arm and elbow.
The adjustable straps depend on the size of the shoulder.
The unit size most suitable for the thorax is 21″ – 42″.

What is the best support for shoulder dislocation?
The best orthosis for shoulder dislocation is adjustable and composed of a fabric that allows air to circulate on the body while still keeping the joint warm.
Those who have suffered a particularly serious injury can benefit from a model that allows hot and cold compresses on the shoulder.
A dislocation must be examined immediately by a doctor in an emergency room, who may order further treatments and tests to determine the full extent of the damage suffered.
An orthosis for shoulder dislocation includes the shoulder, arm and the upper part of the chest.
This structure adequately supports the shoulder and allows normal freedom of movement without causing further damage. At the same time, it exerts pressure on the joint to hold the arm and shoulder blade together.
An adjustable orthosis can be worn by anyone and makes it possible to change the pressure on the unstable joint.
The Velcro fasteners can be tightened or loosened so that the person wearing the orthosis can regulate the support force on the shoulder during the recovery process.
These straps allow small size changes and can be better adapted to the body shape of the wearer.
Heat retention is an important factor in the healing process of dislocation.
Neoprene is a breathable material that maintains the body’s temperature in the shoulder area without overheating.
A good shoulder brace uses this slightly elastic tissue to surround and support the joint.
Depending on the severity of the lesion, the doctor will recommend an orthosis of appropriate size and shape.
A small orthosis with little support covers only the shoulder and is attached to the body with a single strap.
A large orthosis has a strap with Velcro for the back and chest and resembles a shirt that provides extra support.
In the case of serious injuries with torn ligaments, a large orthosis is required.
People who experience severe pain due to the injury can try an orthosis that includes heat or cold pockets over the joint.
The small heat or cold bags can be used and replaced as needed.
