Push Braces med Patella Brace £32.56
The Push Med Patella Brace applies local pressure to the patellar tendon and supports the patella. This relieves the anchorage dependence of the thigh muscle and reduces the tractive force on the lower leg, thus reducing pain. The pad consists of a skin-compatible and elastic polymer. The plastic bracing element above the pad ensures even distribution of pressure. A proper anatomical fit and the pad material help the brace remain in place when walking.

A flail chest occurs as a result of a trauma to the chest, leading to at least 3 ribs becoming fractured or broken, close together, with pieces of bone detaching from the chest wall. These segments of bone start to move independently of the chest wall and in the opposite direction because of lung pressure. The damaged rib cage prevents the lungs expanding fully, in this area.
Ribs surround and support the chest, protecting the organs in the thoracic cavity, the heart and the lungs. It forms part of the respiratory system, allowing inhalation and exhalation. The human body has 12 pairs of ribs (24). The space in between the ribs is known as the intercostal space.
The first seven pairs are true and attach to the costal cartilage and the sternum. Ribs 8, 9 and 10 are referred to as false ribs, and they attach to the costal cartilage of the sternum and the last 2 are floating ribs.
A flail chest is a life threatening condition and medical treatment must be sought immediately if damage to the rib cage is suspected. If fragments of bone are left floating around the chest cavity they could potentially damage the heart and lung tissue.
Flail chest is a common cause of death in the young and the old.
It is vital that medical treatment is sought immediately to prevent the condition becoming life threatening. A chest x ray will help identify a flail chest. Further evidence of a flail chest can be identified through bruising to the chest and punctured blood vessels.
As patients with flail chest are susceptible to pneumonia and complications arising from damage to the lungs and heart, medical treatment focuses on trying to prevent these from developing.
