  Medical specifications

4-point brace medi 4C

The 4-point hyperextension brace medi 4C is used to relieve the lumbar and thoracic spine. For this, the brace restricts the movements of the upper body in the sagittal and frontal planes. medi 4C straightens up the lumbar and lower thoracic spine (extension). At the same time, the brace fixes the lumbar spine in a hollow back position (hyperlordosis).

The medi 4C brace is used for all indications requiring a partial relief by correction of the lumbar/thoracic spine and movement restriction in sagittal and frontal plane, for example: stable vertebral compression fractures of the middle and lower thoracic and lumbar spine (compression fracture). The brace can also be used for temporary postoperative orthotic care as well as for nonsurgical inoperable or postoperative treatment for tumours and metastases of the spinal column. Moreover the brace can be used for axial stabilisation for osteoporotic vertebral colapse in the thoracic and lumbar spine.

A ratchet fastener for closing and adjusting the brace simplifies the handling of the medi 4C. The brace is fully adjustable in three planes - for a good fit. The low weight and the padding ensure it is comfortable to wear.
