A fracture is a complete or partial break in the continuity of a bone structure. It is most common in children and the elderly, but also occurs in young and middle-aged people; with timely and appropriate treatment, most patients can recover their original function; a small number of patients can be left with varying degrees of sequelae.
Closed fracture: the skin at the fracture is intact and the fracture end is not connected to the outside world.
Open fracture: The trauma wound is deep to the fracture or the fracture end pierces the skin to expose the surface of the body.
Compound fracture: the fracture end damages blood vessels, nerves or other organs, or is accompanied by joint disarticulation, etc.
Incomplete fracture: the integrity and continuity of the bone is not completely interrupted.
Complete fracture: the integrity and continuity of the bone is completely interrupted.
The fracture is caused by the direct action of violence on a part of the bone, resulting in a fracture of the injured part, often with varying degrees of soft tissue injury. For example, if a wheel hits the lower leg, a fracture of the tibiofibular stem occurs at the place of impact.
Indirect violence is caused by longitudinal conduction, leverage or torsion, such as a fall from a height and landing on the foot, the trunk is sharply flexed forward due to gravity, and a compression or burst fracture occurs at the junction of the thoracolumbar spine.
Pain, swelling, deformity, bone rubbing sound, functional impairment, hemorrhage.
The fracture ends that have been displaced after the fracture will be restored to normal or close to the original anatomical relationship in order to regain the brace role of the bone. The methods of repositioning include closed repositioning and surgical repositioning.
After fixation, the fracture is easily re-displaced because it is unstable, so different methods should be used to fix it in a satisfactory position to make it heal gradually.
Commonly used fixation methods are: small splints, plaster bandages, external fixation braces, traction brake fixation, etc. These fixation methods are called external fixation.
If it is fixed by surgical incision with plates, steel pins, intramedullary pins, screws, etc., it is called internal fixation.
Through muscle contraction of the injured limb, increase the blood circulation of the tissue around the fracture, promote fracture healing, prevent muscle atrophy, and prevent joint adhesion and joint capsule contracture by active or passive activities of the unfixed joint, so that the function of the injured limb can be restored to the normal state before the fracture as soon as possible.
Fixation material splint or its substitutes (such as wood, bamboo stick, bark, etc.). The dressing needs to be lined with soft materials such as cotton, gauze, towels, etc. between the splint and the skin, and then the splint is tied and wrapped with a triangular towel, bandage or rope.
The splint is placed on the outer side of the fractured upper arm, and the protruding part of the fracture should be padded, then the elbow and shoulder joints should be fixed, and the upper arm should be flexed and suspended in front of the chest with a triangular towel, and then the injured limb should be fixed in the thorax with a triangular towel.
Lower leg fracture fixation method: Place the splint on the outside of the fractured lower leg, with padding on the protruding part of the fracture, then fix the upper and lower ends of the wound and the knee and ankle joints (8-way fixation of the ankle joint), and then fix the top of the splint.
Thigh fracture fixation method: place the splint on the outer side of the fractured thigh, the protruding part of the fracture should be padded, then fix the upper and lower ends of the wound and the ankle and knee joints, and finally fix the lumbar, iliac and ankle parts
Use a cervical brace or head immobilizer to prevent further injury to the cervical spine, which can cause damage to the vital center and thus lead to cardiac and respiratory arrest and death.
Use a spinal board or multiple people moving together to keep the head, trunk and lower extremities in a straight line to prevent causing paraplegia.
Pay attention to the wound and general condition. If the wound is bleeding, the bleeding should be stopped first and the fracture should be fixed only afterwards. If there is shock or respiratory or cardiac arrest, resuscitation should be performed immediately.
When dealing with open fractures with exposed fracture ends, clean and disinfect the area, wrap the wound with gauze, position the injured limb as normal as possible and let the fracture ends retract naturally, and forbid to send the exposed fracture ends back into the wound to avoid wound contamination and re-stabbing the blood vessels and nerves, and then dress and fix.
For fractures of the thigh, calf, and spine, the patient should generally be fixed in place, and the injured limb and trunk should not be moved too much during fixation to avoid increasing the patient's pain and injury to the nerves and blood vessels, and do not reset blindly to avoid aggravating the degree of injury.
In order to fix the fracture securely and firmly, the length and width of the splint used to fix the fracture should be commensurate with the fractured limb, and its length should generally exceed the upper and lower joints of the fracture.
The splint used for fixation should not directly contact the skin. When fixing, soft materials such as gauze, triangular towel pad, towel and clothing can be used between the splint and the limb, especially the ends of the splint, the protruding parts of the joint bones and the interstitial parts, which can be appropriately thickened to avoid skin abrasion or local tissue compression necrosis.
The tightness of fixation and binding should be appropriate, too loose to achieve the purpose of fixation, too tight to affect blood circulation, resulting in limb necrosis. When fixing the limbs, the finger (toe) ends should be exposed so that the blood circulation of the limbs can be observed at any time. If you find that the fingers (toes) are pale, cold, numb, painful, swollen, and the nail bed is bruised, it means that the fixation and binding are too tight and the blood circulation is not good, so you should immediately loosen and re-bind the fixation.
When fixing fractures of the extremities, the upper end of the fracture break should be tied first and the lower end of the fracture end should be tied later. If the binding order is reversed, it will lead to re-dislocation. For upper limb fixation, the limb should be tied in flexion (flexed elbow); for lower limb fixation, the limb should be tied in extension.
When fixing a fracture, the upper end of the fracture should be tied first, followed by the lower end. Reversal of the binding order may lead to repositioning of the broken end.
The upper limb should be fixed in a flexed elbow position; the lower limb should be fixed with the limb extended (pulled) straight.
To prevent heat stroke in summer and to keep warm in winter.
To prevent shock caused by pain, the casualty can be given appropriate application of sedative painkillers under the guidance of a doctor.

To have the manual and warranty
There are a lot of electric wheelchair suppliers in the world. What are the costs involved in choosing the right one? Many people ask this question. I'm sure you have probably seen that some of them were listed on my website and asked me to recommend them. So, what should you do? Is it worth your time and money to shop around for an electric wheelchair supplier or is it better to go with one that is already established and can show you how much they have invested into their service?
This article will take you through the pros & cons of different electric wheelchair suppliers so that you can decide which one suits your needs best.
Supplier: The biggest advantage of choosing an electric wheelchair supplier is that they can help you choose a product for the price range (or even below it) in which you are interested.
Ease of use: Electric wheelchair suppliers can show you how easy their products are to use, even if they do not have any training or experience on them. This is especially important if you will be using them frequently or need to move around a lot with your own mobility device later on.
Customer service: No matter which supplier you choose, I would always recommend getting in touch with him/her and having a conversation about your needs when it comes to equipment and overall accessibility. This can help prevent unnecessary troubles later on down the road, especially if there are issues or concerns about something specific (such as skin color).
Warranty: Just like with everything else, make sure that there is a warranty period before deciding whether to buy from an electric wheelchair supplier or not (a few months at least). This way, if something goes wrong with your purchase, he/she has time to fix any problems instead of having to contact each other right after their purchase, when things haven't been working properly for several months already…
Cost: Electric wheelchair suppliers vary greatly between each other depending on what makes them stand out most among other alternatives (lack of experience on certain types of vehicles being one example). It's really up to personal preference here; but generally speaking cheaper ones tend to be more reliable and inexpensive while more expensive options tend to work better but are usually more complex and require higher maintenance fees afterwards (another reason why these products tend not get used often).
Mobility product availability: There is no doubt that there are many great electric wheelchairs available these days.
I can’t say how many times I have seen a product that was either too expensive, or too slow, or too badly designed. I can only say that the best suppliers are those who know from the start what they want to sell. Who knows this better than people who have been doing it for years? This is what we call a product-market fit.
The most popular electric wheelchair currently on the market is a $20,000+ unit with an average price of $5800; this is because it has been designed by someone who knows what they want and is producing it at a price point that works for them, not against them. The same goes for all electric wheelchairs, but the trend towards lower price points might be significantly different for each. If the design is just about perfect and you can’t see any weaknesses in it, why fix anything?
Electric wheelchairs are a hot topic these days. They’ve been around for decades and are extremely popular, but how do you choose the right one for your needs? In this post we will share some tips about choosing the best electric wheelchairs for individuals with mobility challenges, as well as how to help you to find your perfect pair!
As you can see from these two posts, our site is very much focused on articles about electric wheelchairs — so we have no experience in them ourselves. However, we have a number of contributors who do and they’ve provided excellent advice and insight into the subject.
In this first post we will focus on a few basic things that need to be considered when choosing an electric wheelchair — what features make them worth considering, what kind of people might be interested in their use and more importantly, which type of wheelchair is best suited to their needs.
Next time (where else?) we will expand on these concepts by looking at some of the issues that come up when trying to persuade someone to buy an electric wheelchair (how special they seem and whether you should convince them or not). Finally, there will be advice about how you can set up your own shop so that when there is an offer available it doesn’t fall through!
In this post on website, I show how to choose an electric wheelchair supplier. This is the first step on the path to becoming a successful electric wheelchair supplier, but ultimately I hope it can be applied to any supplier of products or services that you want to sell.
How do you decide which electric wheelchair parts to buy? You can go out and make a purchase decision based on price alone. But what if you’re looking for a good quality electric wheelchair parts? Unfortunately that’s not the case at all. Electric wheelchair parts are an important part of the business of electric wheelchair suppliers, with many companies offering both low cost and high quality products to help their customers build their own electric wheelchair.
If you’re looking for a good quality electric wheelchair parts, it’s important that you choose the right supplier, as poor quality products will result in poor quality customer service. This is a bit more complicated than just buying cheap plastic wheels, though. The importance of choosing the correct supplier is very important to our customers, who are seeking new and innovative products from reputable suppliers.
In this article, I’ll provide some tips on how to get the best price for an electric wheelchair.
First of all, we should be very clear about three things:
In order to get the best price, we need to find a supplier that is willing to sell us at a fair price.
Second, we want to buy from a company that has proven itself as good and reliable suppliers of powerchairs.
Third, we want purchase our electric wheelchair through a website where you can do your research, compare prices and choose the best deal. In this way, you will be sure your money will be put in the best hands. We may not have all the answers here, but this article is aimed at helping you get more information on what you should consider as you search for electric wheelchair suppliers.
The gynecological examination bed is also called the gynecological operating table. It is a medical equipment that provides various gynecological examinations, operations and family planning examinations for major hospitals, clinics, family planning stations, and mobile gynecological examination vehicles. The product can arbitrarily adjust various body positions of patients when they visit a doctor according to the actual situation. The curved design of the product focuses on humanization and comfort, and the seamless design of the bed surface is more conducive to cleaning and protection.
The power system of this series of products is driven by three power systems of full hydraulic, electric motor and manual operation. The main components are foreign brand products, with long shelf life, stable functions, low noise and easy operation.
Compared with the prior art, the beneficial effects of the present utility model are as follows: an arc-shaped groove is provided, and the medical staff or their family members hold the patient on the bed board, and the medical staff or their family members can easily draw out their arms from the arc-shaped grooves, and draw out the arms. Then start the electric telescopic arm so that the telescopic plate can seal the arc groove. The adjustment screw and the wire sleeve are used together, so that when examining the patient, the medical staff can complete the radiological examination of different parts of the patient only by shaking the handwheel. The structure is simple and easy to use, which can not only improve the examination efficiency of the medical staff , but also to avoid unnecessary trouble for the patient. It is equipped with a radiation detection device. During the inspection, place the radiation sensor near the detected part of the patient, and understand the radiation intensity through the display screen. If the radiation intensity is too high, the warning light will flash and alarm. The universal rod enables the lead shield to protect the patient's dangerous organs and prevent harm to the patient.
1. Installation: Install the bed frame and mattress correctly, tighten the screws, check whether the segmented adjustment range of the bed table meets the requirements, and adjust the leg support to the appropriate height to lock;
Adjustment of the back panel: lift the back panel up and hear a click to fold up a gear, which can be adjusted to a suitable gear angle according to the inspection needs; when the back panel is to be flattened, push the back panel up to Put it down again at the end. Then put the mattresses on separately, check whether the whole bed is stable, and the installation is complete.
2. Use: The patient should go to bed from the side of the seat board, let the weight of the body first touch the seat board position, and then put the legs, backrest, etc. for inspection and treatment.
3. The dirt left on the bed body and mattress during inspection and treatment should be cleaned in time, dried and disinfected, and placed in a cool and dry place.
1. Do not adjust the angle of each segmented plate when a patient is lying on the examination bed.
2. After each use, it is necessary to remove all sewage and dirt on the bed to keep the bed and accessories clean and prolong the service life.
4. It must be maintained and repaired once a year .
