Caption: District Nurse and patient. District Nurse examining and adjusting a patient's sequoia frame during a home visit. The patient has a broken leg from being hit by a car. The frame is used to immobilise the bones in cases of severe compound fracture. The frame uses metal rods to hold the bones in place whilst natural repairs progress. This device is also called a Ilizarov frame after its inventor.
