ClaviBrace® is a results driven non-surgical treatment for all severity of broken collarbone [clavicle fracture].
Following nomination by Professor Angus Wallace - winning a Da Vinci award for medical breakthrough for the treatment of collarbone fractures in 2010 - ClaviBrace® has continued to successfully obtain anatomical alignment and union, making it a credible alternative to surgery (ORIF).
ClaviBrace® offers instant pain relief and removes muscle spasm, in the shoulder girdle as a result of the injury, within minutes allowing the fracture to reduce i.e. 'open out to length'. With shoulders fully supported any risk of rotation at the fracture site is avoided and eliminating future shoulder complications Prof Wallace video.
If you have broken your collarbone and want to know more about ClaviBrace® please contact shoulder consultant Mr Ian Bayley's secretary Jayshree Ravel on 07525 067 060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harley Street and BMI Hospital shoulder consultant Mr Ian Bayley FRCS explains, "ClaviBrace® is an exciting innovation and we're seeing really good results".
Many arrive in A&E after breaking a collarbone and leave in a simple cuff. It is important to understand that this is not a treatment and represents a random [hit or miss] benign [do nothing] approach.
Ten years working with icons of the shoulder world has helped us understand how ClaviBrace® can achieve successful outcomes without surgery.

HOW ClaviBrace® WORKS
Quickly stabilises a fracture holding it in the best possible position for healing
Its gilet design does not ride up and applies continual tension at the shoulders to support the fracture
Does not cut in at the underarms or interfere with blood supply to the arms
Prevents rotation at the fracture site avoiding malunion (bad joining of the two broken ends)
STOPS EXCRUCIATING NERVE PAIN - lifts the broken bone ends up and away from underlying nerves stopping pain, preventing nerve impingement and risk of nerve damage
Reduces disturbance holding the fracture in place providing an ideal healing environment and encouraging faster calcification (bone hardening)
* Can also be used to stabilise and treat a broken shoulder blade [scapula]
An ARM SLING is included with your ClaviBrace® - specially designed to prevent neck ache.
Our NHS Ethics committee approved hospital study found that wearing a conventional arm sling causes neck pain with the potential for nerve damage after only four days of wear.
ClaviBrace is not a figure of eight splint
A Canadian study proved that the 'figure of eight splint', does nothing to resolve a broken collarbone. It cuts in at the back of the neck, bears down on the broken bone and restricts blood-flow to the arms. ClaviBrace® has resolved those problems by adopting a gilet waistcoat design.
WHY USE A GILET DESIGN?
Through adopting a gilet design the problems of previous conservative clavicle fracture treatments have been addressed i.e. slippage, discomfort, pressure on the fracture and on the nerves and blood supply to the arm (s).
Technical bracing components have been cleverly integrated into a gilet style garment specifically designed to remove any perceived stigma about wearing a medical brace
Airflow breathable fabrics allow the gilet to be worn continuously without overheating or discomfort
