  • Care and General Guidelines:
    -
    Before cleaning, remove plastic inserts from front and back panels. Hand wash at 86 F with mild soap. When drying, do not expose to direct heat (heater or sunlight) air dry. Never iron or dry clean. If not rinsed well after washing, residual soap may cause skin irritation and product deterioration. It is not uncommon for your body to change size under the spinal brace, because of the compression of the brace and because of a reduction in post-surgical swelling. If you change enough in size that you can no longer adjust the straps enough to get good compression, see your practitioner for a follow-up visit to resize or replace your brace. Your practitioner knows your medical status and is using the spinal brace as one part of your total care. It is important to follow his or her instructions exactly, even if they differ from some of the following guidelines.
  • Anterior Opening and Bivalve Fitting Instructions:
    - For both practical and medical reasons, patients require assistance in donning the orthosis. The assistant must carefully follow each step. Begin with the patient lying down. Carefully log-roll the patient onto his side and place the posterior portion of the brace onto the patients back. Align the waistline groove just above the patients pelvic bone but below the rib cage. While holding the back shell in position, return the patient onto his back.
    - Important: Once the patient is on his back, adjust the position of waistline grooves of the posterior shell so that they are oriented just above the patients pelvis but below his ribs. Then place the anterior portion of the brace onto the patients chest, aligning the waistline grooves with the posterior portion while ensuring that the undershirt is smooth underneath the brace. This prevents the patients skin from being pinched.
    - Tighten the Velcro straps, beginning at the bottom and working up to the top strap. While tightening the top strap, pull up in a diagonal direction on the undershirt. Again, this prevents the patients skin from being pinched.
    - When the straps have been tightened, there should be no gap between the anterior and posterior portions. For best results, re-tighten straps with the patient laying on a flat surface with knees bent and feet flat. Finally, ensure that orthosis fit is snug and does not cause any discomfort.

How is the initial fitting done with your braces? Also, do these braces work well on a person that has a larger abdominal area vs hip area (larger stomach/ natural waist size vs smaller hip waist size i.e. 52" natural waist and 44 pant hip waist size)?
