Push Sports Hinged Knee brace £69.99
The Push Sports Knee Brace supports the knee in a special way, using non-axial leaf spring hinges on both sides of the knee. Movement to the sides is countered, whilst on the other hand bending and stretching of the knee are not hindered. The U-shaped pressure pad is positioned round the kneecap and contributes to stabilising the kneecap.

Firstly Vivomed are excellent, the item arrived next day, will definitely buy from here again!
The Push Sports knee brace is good, but the sizing is all wrong. I need the XL size despite my measurements being M. The M and L I could not even get on.
It could do with more shaping, to accommodate a female thigh, as it digs in at the top and is a little scratchy.
Thus said it is better than most of the other braces I have tried, it allows for movement and does not slip down.

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.
