My father,aged 87yrs, with DM and Left hemiparesis for 1yrs and 9 months and bed ridden, have broken left humerous 3days ago during passive turning in bed . Orthopaedist adviced functional bracing for fracture spiral mid shaft of humerous but we cannot find it so he used U cast . The x-ray showed osteoporosis. I would like to know what does the appropiate management for my father? What type of functional bracing for my father? Where can I get it?
