Stabilisation of the lumbar spine area and the lumbosacral transition by means of integrated dorsal stabilisation elements
Reduction of the lumbar lordosis via abdominal compression, strap system additionally supports the abdominal area
Due to the modular design (back pad, straps and exchangeable stabilising rods) the stability of the support can be adapted /reduced to suit the course of recovery
How does it work?/Mode of action
Lumbamed disc stabilises the lower thoracic and lumbar spine area as well as the transition to the pelvis without impairing the muscular power, using a combination of compressing knitted fabric, internal back rods and an external strap supporting system. The statics of the spine are improved and the spinal segments concerned are relieved, which reduces pain. Variable supporting elements make a quick mobilisation possible. The stability of the brace can be adjusted to the process of recovery by removing the strap supporting system. Moreover, the internal back rods can be replaced by more flexible rods (available as an option). This activates the trunk musculature step by step. Your attending physician will specify the corresponding steps of therapy.
In principle, the support can and should be worn all day at the beginning of the therapy and in particular after operations to support the success of the treatment. The special cut in the area of the groin (Comfort Zone) is decisive for the correct and comfortable fit of the support. If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off the product immediately and seek medical advice. The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse out the product thoroughly.
Before putting on the orthosis, please loosen the straps, so that it can be put on without pulling. To do so, unfasten the hook and loop fastener ends of the straps and loosen these by placing them further back on the velour on the belt.
The orientation of the label on the righthand inner fastener has information on how to put on the brace.
Now, slide your left hand into the inner hand strap on the lefthand fastener side.
Wrap the brace around your body and check once again on the label that you are holding the brace the right way.
Now, slide your right hand into the outer hand strap on the righthand fastener side.
Pull both fastener sides together in the middle, so that they can be hook and loop fastenered over each other as far at the same distance. When fastening, ensure that the back brace is in the middle. The orthotic is on properly when the lower fastener edge is just above the pubic
Now unfasten the hook and loop fastener ends of the pull straps and pull these forward at the same time. You can adjust the tightness to suit your own requirements and manage your pain levels.Information for technicians: The strap
length may be adjusted by cutting it at the edge of the Y fastener.

Before washing, please remove the internal rods as well as the strap supporting system by detaching it from the Y connecting piece. During replacement make sure that the medi logo on the back stays is at the top. Hook and loop fastener tabs must be closed for washing. Fabric softener, fats, oils and ointments can attack the material and the Clima Comfort Effect can be impaired. Soap residues can cause skin irritation and material damage. You can wash the product by hand, preferably using a medi clean detergent, or in delicate cycle at 30°C using a mild detergent without fabric conditioners.
