It is a crafting item that can be found in various locations throughout the Capital Wasteland, most notably used as a necessary component for creating the deathclaw gauntlet. There are actually two items called "medical brace."
The first one is used for the deathclaw gauntlet, while the second one is a junk item found only at Raven Rock. They can be distinguished from each other by looking at their "value" number. If it is worth 10, it is the gauntlet component and if it is worth 1, it cannot be used to create custom weapons. Regardless, both kinds of "medical brace" can be loaded into the Rock-It Launcher and used as ammunition.
