Wrist Supports for Distal Radius Fractures
The radius is one of the two long bones located in the arm. `Distal` refers to the end of the bone that is closest to the wrist. The radius is one of the most commonly broken bones in the human body, especially amongst the elderly as a fall from a standing position provides enough trauma on the wrist to snap this bone. The fracture usually occurs an inch from the wrist and can break in a number of different ways, including a colles fracture.
