Hyperextension brace medi 3 C®

The 3-point hyperextension brace medi 3 C® helps to relieve the lumbar and thoracic spine in the sagittal plane. On the one hand, it extends the lumbar spine and the lower thoracic spine (extension) and, on the other, it holds the lumbar spine in a hollow back position (hyperlordosis) The medi 3 C® has a dynamic sternum pad (cushion at the level of the breastbone), which adjusts to the various positions of the body when standing and sitting. The ratchet fastener makes it possible for the patient to open and close it easily. The medi 3-point corset is used for all indications requiring a partial relief by correction of the lumbar/thoracic spine and movement restriction in sagittal plane, for example, stable vertebral compression fractures of the middle and lower thoracic and lumbar spine as well as a hyperkyphosis in Scheuermann’s disease. The hyperextension brace is also used for temporary postoperative orthotic care.

medi 3 C® helps straighten and immobilise the affected region. Furthermore, the materials used are water-resistant. This simplifies use in day-to-day life.
