Pediatric orthopedic system to treat complex upper extremity fractures
This article was originally published in Start Up
Orthopedic surgeons currently fix a child’s supracondylar fracture by pulling on the patient’s arm and then manually manipulating it an attempt to set the fractured fragments in an acceptable anatomical position. In contrast, the E-Fix Supracondylar Humerus Fracture System from Fixes 4 Kids Inc. is a noninvasive mechanical jig that applies forces to a child’s arm, with far less trauma than pulling forcefully on the limb.
