Treatment module by module
Spinova Immo® Plus umbosacral spine support temporarily immobilises the lumbar spine and relieves pain. The lumbar orthosis extends up to the lower thoracic spine (up to TH10) and reliably protects against damaging rotational movements. It is based on a modular design and supports multi-stage therapy. Elements can be removed, enabling it to stabilize the lumbar area, and allow mobility once again.
To begin with, the plastic shell around the torso immobilises the lumbar spine. Along with the support that covers it and its built-in corset stays, it creates circular traction. The stabilising 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 strength of the force applied can be permanently adjusted by altering the strap tension with a torque wrench. This ensures that the therapeutic circumferential pressure remains the same every time it is worn. As mobility increases, the shell is removed and the support, along with the back setting device and strap system, takes on a stabilising and protective function.
The individually adjustable plastic shell has multiple perforations and, like the support made from light, elastic mesh material, it is comfortable to wear.
