Concerned that an arm sling isn't providing enough support for your broken collarbone? You'd be right to be, a sling is designed to support the weight of the arm and not your shoulder. Using a sling for a broken collarbone, in effect, represents benign neglect, and can lead to shortening of the broken bone with loss of strength in the shoulder.
Ten years of working with icons of the shoulder world helped bring about the development of this vest. Our studies prove that it can, under specialist care, offer outcomes equal to surgery, without the associated risks of surgery.

Using a gilet design significantly improves shoulder and overall torso posture, whilst also delivering a more comfortable and independant healing experience.
Does not interfere with blood supply to the arms or underlying nerves or cut up at the underarms.
Can also, where applicable, reduce the pain of broken ribs.
Clavicular Gilet Versus Figure of Eight Splint
The principle of drawing the shoulders back to maintain the length of a broken collarbone is well understood. The Fig of Eight design, whilst it draws the shouler back, also causes pressure at the fracture site leading to further displacement of the broken bone and tingling in the arms as the broken end(s) touch down on underlying nerves. It also cuts up at the underarms, restricting blood-flow, causing numbness in the arms and fingers. Over time the fig of eight cuts-in at the back of the neck making it extremely uncomfortable for the wearer. The Clavicluar Gilet has resolved those issues.
GILET ACCESSORY FOR EARLY RETURN TO SPORT
A specially designed upperarm gaiter can be added at three weeks and attaches to the gilet. The gaiter prevents extremes of movement likely to disrupt the healing process and is the brainchild of surgeon MR IAN BAYLEY
The Clavicular Gilet and Gaiter combination gave International event rider Tina Canton the confidence to get back to competition only 4 weeks after a serious collarbone break.
