How does it work?/Mode of action

Hyper-extension of the vertebral column provides stabilisation in the saggital plane
Rotational stability is restricted by the subclavicular extension pads
Stable framework construction restricts lateral flexion

Donning/fitting instructions

Adjusting the width
First loosen the screws on the chassis and adjust the orthosis to the width of the patient's body. Please always check that the functioning of the hinged fastener is not restricted.
Now loosen the two screws on the side of the chassis and the screws on the fastener. Adjust the orthosis to suit the patient’s length – distance from the symphysis pubis to the subclavicular contact area. Then retighten all the screws.
Adjusting the strap length
Using the hook and loop fastener and the reversing loop adjust the length of the strap so that the pad comes to lie in the middle of the back. Remember that a few centimetres of the strap will have to be pulled through the fastener.
Opening and closing the fastener
Slide the grey bar sideways to open the fastener. To close the orthosis flip the cover over until it audibly clicks into place.
