The Boxer Helps Doctors Knock Down Costs, More Flexibly and Efficiently Treat Boxer's Fractures
Increases Reimbursement Percentages for Physicians, Delivers Flexibility, Comfort, Support and Less Mess.
PR9.NET August 28, 2009 - DeFuniak Springs, FL – Professional Products, Inc. (PPI), a leader and innovator in orthopaedic solutions for nearly five decades, today announced the launch of The Boxer™ (www.BoxerFractureSplint.com), a new brace providing a more affordable, flexible and less time consuming alternative to hard casting or splinting of non-displaced "Boxer's" fractures. Part of PPI's popular ezyWRAP® line (www.ezywrap.com), The Boxer is ideal for orthopedic and emergency room physicians tired of the imprecision, mess and expense of traditional casting methods of non-displaced fractures.
Made of high quality, durable orthopaedic neoprene for maximum stability, comfort and flexibility, The Boxer's Palmar Spoon and Metacarpal Stay hold the wrist and fingers in the preferred angle of support to treat fourth and fifth metacarpal fractures, while the Ulnar/Dorsal Stay eliminates pressure on the ulnar styloid. Moreover, the brace's design allows it to be easily adjusted for swelling or removed for skin care to enhance patient comfort. The Boxer can be easily fitted on a patient, reducing the reliance on staff expertise to achieve the correct fit the first time. Its Velcro® Hoop Closure ensures The Boxer will not get snagged on clothing.
"Setting a Boxer's fracture takes a lot of time and effort, and results in little financial return," said Dean Stanton, General Manager of PPI. "Physicians and clinicians really like The Boxer because it gives them the flexibility to make adjustments to ensure a proper setting, which hard cast molds cannot offer, and it absorbs less of their billings."
The meticulous attention devoted to every aspect of the design of the Boxer becomes obvious once the brace is applied. The Boxer's Ulnar/Dorsal Stay is pre-adjusted with fingers in 70° flexion, and the Palmar Stay pre-adjusted with the wrist in 30° extension. "The Boxer is everything we strive for in the development of an orthopaedic product for doctors," said Stanton. "It lowers costs and frustration for physicians, while providing inimitable comfort and support to patients."
Affordably priced around $25.00 for medical professionals, The Boxer is available in a variety of semi-universal sizes -- from pediatric to double extra large -- to accommodate all patients.
