Pediatric Clavicle Splint & Posture Support
This is one of our best slings for broken clavicle that fits infants, toddlers, children and youths. How does it work? The padded clavicle splint straps wrap around the shoulders, holding them in a rolled back position that immobilizes the collarbone area. The clavicle protector also supports the shoulders.
A figure-eight brace immobilizes both shoulders and leaves the arms free. Besides being more comfortable for your busy child or toddler, this also helps prevent him or her from losing strength and flexibility during the recovery period.
The retracted (rolled back) position the collar bone guard promotes also prevents your child from slouching. If you decide to use it as a rounded shoulder posture brace, your child should start by using it for 30 minutes at a time and gradually increase to three-hour increments. Using the pediatric support for slouching for longer than three hours at a time can cause the muscles of the back, shoulders and chest to weaken, doing more harm than good.
