Lumbamed® facet relief of the facet joints

A common reason for pain in the lumbar vertebrae is wear and tear of the facet joints, natural erosion of the joint surfaces. The Lumbamed® facet lumbar support can help in the resulting osteoarthritis of the facet joints. The precise double 3-point strap system enables the circumferential pressure around the body to be increased individually without intervals. The lumbar support reduces lordosis by enclose and aligns the pelvis. Integrated stabilising elements in the back provide specific relief for the facet joints.

Lumbamed® facet can be used for all indications requiring partial relief by reduction of lordosis of the lumbar spine such as:

  • Facet joint osteoarthritis
  • Intervertebral disc protrusion, prolapse
  • Lower back pain (lumbago)
  • Lower back pain with sciatica
  • Lumbar vertebral canal stenosis
  • Postural muscle imbalance in the lumbar spine
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spondylosis
  • Painful conditions of the lumbosacral junction

The support is particularly simple to apply thanks to bilateral hand loops. Opening tab: The brace can be opened easily using just one finger. Knit fabric and strap layout enclose the pelvis and sacroiliac joint optimally, particularly effective for complaints which involve the sacroiliac joint. The precise double 3-point strap system enables the circumferential pressure around the body to be increased individually without intervals.

Comfort is also a high priority with Lumbamed® facet:

  • medi Comfort Zone: Anatomical cut-out in sensitive bending area to ensure a high level of comfort.
  • Fastening is soft on inner side: Pleasant to wear, especially when the brace is worn directly on the skin.
  • Fastening edges fold down to ensure a high level of comfort during movement and while seated.
  • Soft on the skin, thanks to a special hybrid fabric created from high-tech fibre and natural eucalyptus fibre.

Clima Comfort* ensures that the garment is comfortable to wear. Modern fibre technology wicks moisture away from the skin’s surface quickly and ensures a high level of breathability. The integrated Clima Fresh function has an odour-inhibiting effect. This is achieved via special thread technology or via special processing during the production process. These have an antibacterial effect and thus inhibit odour-forming bacteria within the fabric.

*Scientifically tested by French institute IFTH. The test results show that Clima Comfort technology from medi assures climate control between the skin and the stocking. With 11/12 points, medi achieved an outstanding overall score.
