At Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we pride ourselves on being at the leading edge of orthopedic technology. One way we do this is by utilizing the Exo Brace.

The Exo Brace is a lightweight yet effective casting option that can be used in water and avoids the loud, and often scary, cast saw required for a traditional cast. The Exo Brace is made of three layers of high tech polymers and foam that allows our physicians to custom fit the brace in-office using heat. The Exo Brace is also a great option for many patients because it’s:

  • lightweight
  • waterproof
  • easy to clean
  • easy to remove
  • comes in several fun colors and patterns like  pink, blue and camo.

It’s a great option for children and anyone who is active with its waterproof feature. “Our patients love the Exo Brace,” said Nick Nichols, SROSM DME Coordinator. “They can control how tight or loose it is, and find the waterproof feature to be extremely convenient. And we like that it can be easily adjusted for swelling and wound checks.”

Advancements such as the Exo Brace are standard at Sterling Ridge Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine of The Woodlands. It’s one of the many reasons why we are the premier orthopedic practice in the Houston area.
