Socks/Stockings, Fracture

Definition : Socks or stockings designed to be worn next to the skin under splints, braces, or removable casts being used by patients during fracture healing. Fracture socks or stockings are usually made with a combination of a plant or animal fiber (such as cotton or wool), a synthetic fiber (such as polypropylene), and an elastic fiber for ease of fit. They provide comfort to the patient and wick moisture away from the skin. They can be washed and reused. Lower limb fracture socks or stockings are available in above- or below-the-knee length; each type may have open-toe or full-foot design. Upper limb fracture socks are available for use under casts, braces, or splints for the upper arm, lower arm, hand, or wrist.
