The Internet Brace and Support Store for Patients to use with their GMC Registered Doctors
Patients are often confused by the jargon used to describe injury, its prevention and treatment. Part of your valued role as a doctor is to translate this jargon into effective therapy that encourages compliance after injury or arthritis.
As a Doctor, this site helps you to help patients choose correctly when they are buying a knee brace for knee injury, wrist brace for wrist injury, or ankle brace for ankle injury over the internet. Your help reduces the cost to the patient, the knee brace supplier, and the environment.
As a Patient you can be sure your doctor has recommended a high quality product with evidence base that it is being prescribed for the correct indication.
OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com is, first and foremost, an educational website with product placement at its heart. Patients benefit from your informed expert advice on the braces and supports most appropriate for their condition; they also benefit from the cost savings only you can deliver. For example, our range of Procare Wrist Supports and Donjoy Shoulder Slings are a less expensive, higher quality alternative than many found on the high street today.
Managing Director of OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com John Hardy said: "last year 2015 saw a steady year of trading and we have maintained a 97% success rate for next day delivery. We are working hard to keep it like that in 2016 but customers should knw that ordering on a weekend usually gets a delivery Tuesday". Follow John Hardy on Twitter
Here is what some of your patients, our customers, said about us:
"We have received it. Very pleased with the speed of delivery. Thanks for getting back to me. Great service!. Cheers. Sinead"
"I would like to thank you for the superb advice you provided with regard to the cooler/compressor, even to discussing the size of the hip cuff. I ordered the items yesterday morning, and they arrived safely this afternoon. I was able to track its journey, and as it was due in the afternoon, was able to be here to receive it. I am seeing my physiotherapist later in the week for specific instructions on how long to leave it on for etc, in preparation for my surgery. I am also impressed by your attention to detail, and notably, the inclusion of adaptor plugs. Many thanks. Cynthia"
"In the past I had a brace bent for me in a crude fashion. The new OA Assist Knee Brace from this site allows me to continue to ski with the ability to vary the load onto the worn out inside of my knee from day to day. What relief!"

Fortilax Elastic Knee Support Special Offer
The new Fortilax Elastic Knee Support Special Offer
OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com has maintained the reduction in the cost of their newest and most popular knee support in winter 2016 for your patient. With warm winter weather like this you will appreciate a warm support that breaths without being hot and sweaty like the cheaper neoprene alternatives.
Along with our knee braces, this knee support is one of the most popular sold to professional athletes following ACL tears after reconstruction or during rehabilitation before reconstruction.
There is good evidence that these knee supports improve proprioception during activity.
OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com sees the sales of knee supports rise before and during the football season in the UK. Donjoy, the knee support manufacturer, explain that the seasonal variation on the demand for a comfortable knee support, instead of a hot neoprene support, is because patients are becoming aware of an increasing trend towards prevention of recurrent knee injury in football and are well aware that a good support in the ACL injured or reconstructed knee will allow earlier return to football. Cybex your patient after ACL reconstruction with and without this Fortilax Elastic Knee and see the difference!
OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com supply the Fortilax Elastic Knee support to Mr John Hardy for his VIP patients at a Private Clinic in Chelsea, London. The athletes he sees are looking for a knee support that will balance comfort and ease of application. He said: "Most knee surgeons are aware of the studies that show that reconstruction of a torn ACL is associated with a deficit in the threshold to detection of passive knee motion, and during the first year of healing the use of a knee support provides improvement up to two years after surgery so it is the responsibility of the surgeon to advise accordingly. (Beynnon BD, Good L, Risberg MA. The effect of bracing on proprioception of knees with anterior cruciate ligament injury. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther. 2002 Jan;32(1):11-5.).
Remember when comparing prices at OrthopaedicsAndTrauma.com VAT is not added to the prices of these knee braces but a smaller shipping charge is.....
