The Sarmiento brace is a great option for treating a humeral shaft fracture immediately following an injury or as part of treatment after the removal of a cast. The circumferential tissue compression provided by the brace controls the segments of one's upper arm bone so that it can heal correctly. The humerus brace comes with a sling to support the arm and two stockinette sleeves. This brace applies compression to the soft tissue around one's upper arm, which helps control the humeral segments as needed when one sustains a diaphyseal humerus fracture or some other break of this bone. The shells of the Sarmiento brace are constructed of rigid polyethylene material that is lightweight and durable. A closed-cell foam lining makes the Sarmiento brace soft against the skin. For additional comfort and light support, this Sarmiento long humeral splint comes with two stockinette undersleeves. The strapping system of this Sarmiento brace for humerus fracture care allows one to easily adjust and customise its fit. There are two contact-closure straps around the upper arm, each of which can be tightened or loosened as needed as one's humerus bone fracture care progresses. There is also a cuff for the wrist that supports the arm and holds the elbow in a bent position that makes this into a coaptation splint for a humerus fracture if additional immobilisation is needed. The straps of the cuff sleeve wrap around the neck, and a small pad protects the wrist from direct contact with the strap. This portion of the broken humerus brace can be added or removed as needed. The sarmiento brace is available in sizes XS-2XL. To determine your size, measure the circumference around the widest part of your bicep and the circumference above your elbow. The brace fits bicep circumferences of 18cm - 48cm , and elbow circumferences of 15cm - 43cm .
