A Colle’s fracture is a fracture of the distal radius in the forearm with dorsal and radial displacement of the wrist and hand. This injury is sometimes known as a “dinner fork” deformity due to the resultant shape of the forearm. Individuals suffering from osteoporosis are especially vulnerable to this injury. It is both an overuse injury and one that can be caused by trauma – usually from trying to break a fall with outstretched hands. Treatment of a Colle’s fracture can require immobilization of the injured area to allow full healing. This may be accomplished by the braces below, although a decision to use one of these products should be taken based on advice from a medical practitioner.
