Highest fracture rates in children occur in Wales

30% OF BOYS AND 19% OF GIRLS WILL SUSTAIN A BROKEN BONE BEFORE THEIR 18TH BIRTHDAY.

With the school summer holidays well underway, there has been an increase in the amount of children fracturing their bones.

For the past 15 years HALCO have been supplying Hook & Loop Tape to the NHS to help provide support to those suffering from fractures. With a vast range of colours readily available, our product is first choice for children's fracture bracing worldwide.

According to a University of Southampton study, fracture rates differ depending on where a child lives. The highest fracture rates in children occur in Wales, almost twice as likely than those living in Greater London.

Children with fractured bones require supportive equipment that is able to accommodate their active lifestyle, HALCO's Hook & Loop Tape is manufactured to endure such tension and wear, yet maintaining and preserving its quality.
