Stockinette Cotton Sleeves for Sarmiento Humeral Fracture Brace
This stockinette undersleeve is designed to be worn with the Sarmiento Brace for Humeral Shaft Fracture. These white stockinette sleeves are composed of high-quality 100% cotton, which is soft against the skin and non-irritating, offering optimal comfort to the patient while wearing the sarmiento brace.
The purpose of the undersleeves is to keep the fractured upper arm warm, and protect the skin from rubbing or causing irritation from the sarmiento brace. It also serves as an extra layer of protection to prevent further damage to the injured tissues.
One may find it useful to have multiple stockinette sleeves on hand so they can wash one while wearing the other. Some instructions for treating a humerus bone fracture also recommend wearing two sleeves at a time at the beginning of the healing process.
The stockinette sleeves paired with the sarmiento brace for humeral shaft fractures creates an ideal treatment method for a fractured humerus or a fractured upper arm. Wearing the two together provides compression to the soft tissues around one's arms, which helps control and protect the humeral segments as needed following a fracture.
These removable stockinette sleeves can be hand washed by using warm water and mild soap. Note that the sleeves should not be washed or dried using high temperatures, as they are made of cotton and may shrink as a result.
