Physicians Urgent Care is happy to announce that we now offer EXOS casts for Fractures and Sprains.

Introducing a New Bracing System

Breaking your arm or wearing a sling is a real inconvenience. You have to deal with the smell, irritation, and the restrictions of a cast for six to twelve weeks. While fiberglass and plaster braces have a long history of success, there is now a better option. The Exos braces and casts  are made from polymer and foam and take only 8 minutes to apply. Shaped in a dry heat process, the Exos material can be readjusted, tightened, or removed easily. They are also completely waterproof. Exos is a great example how new materials and designs can upgrade old technology.

Exos Bracing System

Exos is the leading upper extremities bracing system.  It is different from traditional fiberglass and plaster casts in many ways:

  • Reformable
  • Customizable
  • Easily applied and removed
  • Water proof
  • Lightweight and low profile
  • Antimicrobial and easily cleaned

What Does all This Mean?

For starters, this brace can easily be removed by the patient and or adjusted by your doctor. Since Exos is waterproof, you can easily shower or swim if you want to. Also, If the brace gets dirty, it is easily cleaned with soap and water. Of course, your doctor may advise you to limit these activities and only when unavoidable, remove the brace yourself.

Application and Removal:

Physicians Urgent Care offers this brace to patients that book a Sports Medicine appointment. The brace will be heated to mold specifically for each patient by our Sports Medicine Physician, Jason Williams, MD.  It is like a shoe with laces.  Once on, there is a knob pushed to tighten the laces until snug around the area.  It can be removed in the same fashion. He explains the process on our Instagram.
