The medical braces are actually two different items sharing the same name. The regular version is frequently found in various locations throughout the Capital Wasteland, has a value of 10 caps and can be used as a crafting component for the deathclaw gauntlet. The new version is exclusively found on level 3 inside Raven Rock, has a value of 1 cap and cannot be used to create custom equipment at all. Just like most other miscellaneous items, both can be loaded into the Rock-It Launcher and used as ammunition.
