Spinova® Support Plus
Multifunctional orthosis to relieve and straighten the lumbar spine
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
If gradual mobilization after back surgery is the aim, the balance between stability and mobility must be correct. The bridging pad on the Spinova Support Plus stabilizes the surgical outcome immediately after the intervention. Undesirable rotation of the lumbar spine is also restricted. In the mobilization phase, the stabilizing elements can be removed. This reduces the movement-restricting stabilization effect and the orthosis acts as a support for the spine.
The Spinova Support Plus permits controlled treatment according to an individually adaptable two-stage plan.
Stage 1 (Stabilization phase):
For effective post-operative or initially conservative correction of the segments, the orthosis is used together with the bridging pad.
Stage 2 (Mobilization phase):
As rehabilitation progresses and mobility increases, the bridging pad is removed and the aluminum stays are taken out of the Spinova back setting device. The corset stays which remain in the orthosis provide an external supportive effect.
