The large back pad on the orthosis distributes forces away from the lumbar spine out toward the thoracic spine, pelvis and sacrum. The moderate lordosis-reducing effect relieves the lumbar spine. This effect is also supported by the abdominal pad – it compresses the abdomen and straightens the spine. Depending on the course of treatment, the spine can be mobilized by removing the back pad.
- Initial passive stabilization followed by active stabilization
- Support can be adjusted gradually using tensioning straps
- Fitted easily without the need for any great effort
Spinova Support Plus comprehensively stabilizes the lumbar spine and supports your natural lordosis. This alleviates pain and supports the healing process. The orthosis is based on a modular design and has elements that can be removed as part of multi-stage therapy.
The lumbar orthosis extends up to the lower thoracic spine (up to TH10) and protectively limits incorrect movements. The support made from light, elastic mesh material with its integrated corset stays surrounds the torso and compresses the abdomen, which relieves and gently straightens the lumbar spine. The large back pad lies flat against the body, corrects the posture to the patient’s natural lordosis and distributes the forces toward the thoracic spine, pelvis and sacral bone. An additional abdominal pad increases the effect. The stabilizing force is applied in a targeted manner by means of the Spinova strap system. Straps are attached at the appropriate height to a back setting device, rerouted twice and joined together with a buckle. The strap tension can be permanently adjusted with a torque wrench. This ensures that the therapeutic circumferential pressure remains the same every time it is worn.
As mobility increases, the back and abdominal pads can be removed.
