Introducing the Push med Shoulder Brace Plus
Push shoulder braces provide effective immobilisation of the shoulder joint, without causing excessive strain on the neck and shoulders.
Th Push Med Shoulder Brace Plus is fitted with an additional strap across the unaffected shoulder.
This strap comfortably supports the hand and wrist, guaranteeing a fixed position of the lower arm. The angle at which the lower arm is positioned can be adjusted to prevent hyperaemia. Thus the weight of the arm is comfortably distributed across the breast and shoulder straps.
The 3 different sizes of the Push med Shoulder Brace Plus offer a wide circumference range, and come in different versions for the left-hand and right-hand side.
The brace is made of Sympress™, a high-quality comfortable material. The use of microfibres makes the inside feel soft and keeps the skin dry. The Push med Shoulder Brace is easy to apply and can be washed without any problem.

The menisci are crescent structures that act as a cushion between the femur and the tibia. The medial meniscus is on the inside of the knee and the lateral on the outside.
These structures absorb a considerable amount of compressive load from the medial and lateral femoral condyles (50% and 70% respectively)
The menisci have a degree of mobility which allows the tibia to roll and glide back on the femur during flexion.
Medial tears tend to be related to a stable knee joint, while lateral meniscal tears may be concurrent with damage to the anterior cruciate ligament.
Meniscus tears usually occur as a result of twisting of the weight bearing knee. They might be as a result of trauma, but not always.
Longitudinal tears are common among athletes, and may be disabling. They may be part of a more severe knee injury involving the collateral or cruciate ligaments. They are usually caused by a twisting movement with a flexed knee and planted foot.
The knee may appear swollen, will be painful and there will be limitation of movement in the knee.
Patients may describe a pop or a sensation of tearing when the injury occurs, while swelling may occur one or two days post injury.
Patients may experience a clicking feeling in the knee, and locking may occur before completion of the extension movement. This would tend to indicate a bucket handle or large flap tear.
Some minors tears are treated using the RICE regime and Non Steroidal ant-Inflammatory drugs, while, depending on the nature and severity, more serious tears may require surgical repair or meniscectomy.
