Lumbamed facet is simple to use and effective for treatment. Users benefit from practical hand loops that make it simple to put on the orthosis. The double tension strap system enables the patient to dose the relieving effect of the Lumbamed facet exactly with a minimum of effort. The straps on the orthosis can be shortened for individual adjustment. The particularly soft fastening system and the special comfort zones offer additional comfort in wear, especially when sitting down.

Effective treatment for osteoarthritis ofthe facet jointsmedi presents the new back brace Lumbamed facet at OTWorld– the world’s leading trade fair for Orthopaedics + Rehabilitation Technology 2014.
It has been developed especially for thetreatment of osteoarthritis of the facet joints. Degenerative changes of the intervertebral discs and facet jointsaccount for the majority – around 42 percent – of mechanical backpain. Indications such as osteoarthritis of the facet joints areparticularly unpleasant. The causes can be wear and tear of theintervertebral discs or a reduction in the height of the discs. Thisleads, in turn, to increased mechanical loading of the facet joints.These small joints connect neighbouring vertebral bodies with eachother and enable complex movements to be made. If the facet joints are worn down too much, the patient may suffer significant limitations of movement. Pain on weight-bearing and at rest, particularly when getting up in the morning, are equally common symptoms. Relief to make you feel good.
With Lumbamed facet, medi now offers a back brace that has beendeveloped especially for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the facet joints. The back brace achieves this objective by using three active principles to straighten the lumbar spine and thus relieve loading onthe facet joints. First, the compressive knit together with the abdominal panel (fastener over the front of the abdomen) creates intra-abdominal pressure and second, this is supplemented by the double 3-point strap system. This consists of upper and lower double straps. The lower pair pass around the pelvis and the sacro-iliac joints to rotate the pelvis. The upper pair effectively flatten the lordosis. This means that the lumbar spine is straightened. It is also stabilised together with the lumbosacral junction. In this manner, Lumbamed facet relieves pressure on the inflamed facet joints and the user canbenefit from marked pain relief.
