The “plus“ for back support
The Spinova Support Plus back support is a variant from the range of Spinova lumbar orthosis products. It stabilizes the lumbar spine and supports the patient’s natural lordosis. With its large back pad, Spinova Support Plus relieves the anterior column of the vertebral bodies in the case of ventral damage caused by anterior edge breaks or spinous process fractures, for example. It does this by correcting posture and redistributing forces onto the thoracic spine, pelvis, and the sacral bone. The orthosis can be downgraded gradually during the course of treatment. If the large back pad and the aluminum stays are removed from the back-setting device, the orthosis stabilizes like a Lindemann corset.
Patented variable force application
The lumbar orthosis, including the back pad, extends down to the lower thoracic spine. It wraps around the torso with a form-fitting support with integrated corset stays. The orthosis’ stabilizing force is applied in a targeted manner via the patented Spinova tensioning strap system. To this end, the straps are attached to the back-setting device at variable heights, deflected, and connected in a closure system. When fastened centrally, the orthosis extends to the lumbar lordosis. The wider the selected strap distance, the less extensive the correction in the direction of the lordosis. The strap tension can be permanently adjusted with a torque wrench, which ensures that the stabilizing force is always the same when the orthosis is closed.
Spinova Support Plus is used for post-operative and conservative treatments. Indications for the back orthosis are: lumbar vertebra fractures, spondylolysis/spondylolisthesis grade II, spondylolysis/kyphoplasty, herniated disks, osteoporosis, lumbar syndrome, and muscular insufficiency. The large back pad comes in a “Standard” variant for patients with a height above 1.70 meters and a “Short” version for patients below 1.70 meters.
