Utah mom/nurse invents the first collarbone brace for infants

Local News

LEHI (News4Utah) – A Lehi mother and nurse discovered the hard way that there is no treatment for an infant clavicle break, one of the most common newborn injuries. Using her nursing training, she created the first brace to help her baby heal. 

The Infant Brace is made out of hospital grade mesh tubing, sewn so that the baby’s arm is immobilized in the brace which allows the clavicle to set and heal. Doctors recommend wearing the brace for two weeks to one month, and because they are made out of mesh and will eventually lose their elasticity, an infant will require 3-5 braces during recovery.The brace can be worn over or under clothing and while buckled into strollers or car seats.
