Spinomed® active: back orthosis for vertebral extension (corselette variant for women)

The Spinomed® active corselette variant is a back orthosis that leads to active straightening of the upper body by the biofeedback system. It strengthens the abdominal and back muscles and thus relieves the thoracic and lumbar spine. Spinomed® active complies with the recommendations in the current note for guidance of the Dachverband Osteologie e.V. (DVO). According to these, the effect of a back orthosis should be to hold the spine erect.3 The more erect posture increases lung volume, while, at the same time, reducing the typical tendency in osteoporosis for the body to sway. This can prevent fractures in the elderly.

Spinomed® active can be used for all indications, requiring a relief and/or correction of the lumbar/thoracic spine as well as movement restriction in sagittal plane, such as:

  • Osteoporotic bone collapse in the thoracic and lumbar spine
  • Juvenile Scheuermann`s disease
  • Hyperkyphosis with chronic back pain

Spinomed® active is worn inconspicuously under clothing. With the help of the aluminium back splint, the orthosis can be individually adapted to the contour of the spine without any tools. Adjustable shoulder straps ensure a perfect fit. Spinomed® active is also available in a number of variants - for different needs:

  • With cup
  • Without cup
  • Black
  • Champagne

The clinical study proves the efficacy of Spinomed® active.4
