Product benefits Stabilisation of the lumbar spine area and the lumbosacral transition by means of integrated dorsal stabilisation elements
Reduction of the lumbar lordosis via abdominal compression, strap system additionally supports the abdominal area.
How does it work?/Mode of action Lumbamed disc stabilises the lower thoracic and lumbar spine area as well as the transition to the pelvis without impairing the muscular function, using a combination of compressing knitted fabric and an external strap supporting system. The mechanics of the spine are improved and the spinal segments concerned are supported, which reduces pain. Variable supportive elements make mobilisation possible. The stability of the brace can be adjusted by removing the strap supporting system.
The support can be worn all day after operations to support.
The special cut in the area of the lower abdomen (Comfort Zone) is required for the correct and comfortable fit of the support. If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off the product immediately and seek medical advice.
The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse out the product thoroughly.
Putting on the brace: Before putting on the orthotic, please loosen the straps, so that it can be put on without pulling. To do so, unfasten the velcro ends of the straps and loosen these by placing them further back on the velour on the belt.
The orientation of the label on the righthand inner fastener has information on how to put on the brace (with the magenta edge pointing upwards).
Now, slide your left hand into the inner hand strap on the lefthand fastener side.
Wrap the brace around your body and check once again on the label that you are holding the brace the right way (magenta edge pointing upwards).
Now, slide your right hand into the outer hand strap on the righthand fastener side.
Pull both fastener sides together in the middle, so that they can be velcroed over each other as far at the same distance. When fastening, ensure that the back brace is in the middle. The orthotic is on properly when the lower fastener edge is just above the pubic bone.
