- Provides compression around the affected area with targeted compression on the hernia, reducing the inguinal hernia
- Infinite adjustment for maximum comfort minimizes pressure over back musculature
- A simple hook and loop closure allows you to control the fit and compression of the truss
- Elastic band trusses should be put around the waist with the pad places in position and tightened to fit
How to wear:
- First, lay flat on the floor
- Unfasten the Velcro® between the two pads
- Wrap truss around pelvis as shown with removable pad in front.
- Fasten the front Velcro® to fit snugly (Once adjusted to fit the user on first application, the Velcro® strap between the pad pockets does not need to be re-adjusted for each application.)
- Pull the 2 straps between the legs to the back
- Thread through the buckles and adjust for a comfortable fit.
- Bilateral inguinal hernia
The spine has three main sections, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar. There are seven cervical vertebrae (C1-C7), twelve thoracic (T1-T12), and five lumbar (L1-L5). In addition, there are two fused vertebrae, the sacrum and the coccyx. The twelve thoracic and five lumbar vertebrae make up the thoracolumbar spine. The cervical spine supports the head and allows anterior, posterior, and lateral flexion and extension, plus rotation of the head and neck. C2, called the axis, forms a pivot with C1, called the atlas, around which the head rotates on the cervical spine. Normal curvature is lordotic (eyes pointing up). The thoracolumbar spine (T1-L5) has two normal curvatures, lordotic in the lumbar region and kyphotic in the thoracic region. The primary spinal functions are to maintain an erect posture, provide stability and mobility, transmit loads, absorb shocks, and protect the spinal cord.
