BORT DynamicFX Back support brace
- Spring reinforced for a life on the move. Height back plate-32cm( small ).
Especially for the treatment of osteoporosis. Dynamic reclination for the improvement of body posture and size, activation of the torso muscles. Permanent stabilisation of the achieved straightening. Pain relief of the overstressed back muscles. Increase in mobility and decrease in the risk of falling. With cold-formable back plate. The intensity of the dynamics can be selected by means of five different spring elements depending upon the patient's requirements.
- conservative treatment of secondary kyphosis (stable fractures, tumors),
- painful rounded back,
- muscular insufficiency,
- conservative treatment when dealing with spondylitis,
- Scheuermann's disease,
- pre / post operative stabilisation.
Functionality and effect:
- Counteraction of the kyphosis in the thoracic spine area by activating the torso muscles.
- Improves posture and brings pain relief by dynamically straightening the lumbar spine and thoracic spine.
- Relief and clearing of lordosis of the lumbar spine.
- Improvement of the body posture and strengthening of the muscles.
- Stabilisation of the achieved straightening.
- Pain reduction in the overstressed back muscles.
- Increase in mobility via a reduction in pain.
- Lower risk of falling due to an improvement of the statics of the body
Notice: The BORT DynamicFX Back brace that has been tailor-made for you and has been adapted by the orthopaedic technician is pulled over the shoulders in the same way as a backpack. In doing so, the base support is open. Please ensure that the shoulder straps are not twisted.
Please ensure that you have the fit and the functionality of the BORT DynamicFX Back brace regularly checked by your orthopaedic technician. It is especially important to inspect the length of the shoulder straps and the base plate and to have these components readjusted if necessary, particularly when starting treatment with the BORT DynamicFX Back brace.
In order to ensure safety when dealing with your medical aid, it is particularly important that you practice putting on the brace and taking it off together with your physician / physiotherapist / orthopaedic technician.
The wearing time of your brace is to be determined by your treating physician depending upon the present indication and your personal situation within a treatment plan. Please note that treatment with the BORT DynamicFX Back brace is a long-term treatment measure. The sustainable treatment success will only occur after a certain period of time has passed.
Adjustment of the BORT DynamicFX Back brace
The adjustment of the BORT DynamicFX Back brace may only be carried out by trained specialist staff.
Step 1 - Determination of the circumference of the waist
Measure the circumference of the waist and select the appropriate size from the available base support sizes (1-6)
Step 2 - Selection the base plate
The length of the spine is measured step by step via the spinous processes of the spine that run from the natal cleft up to the head (cranial). The base plate is available in 4 different lengths: 32cm,40cm,48cm,56cm
The selection of the base plate is primarily determined by the affected area / areas as well as the individual body size of the patient.
Function of the spring tension elements:
The dynamics of the brace can be individually selected. The strength of the spring determines the degree
of straightening and therefore, the improvement in posture.
The following spring strengths are available:
30 Newton 40 Newton 50 Newton 60 Newton 80 Newton
Spring strengths of between 80 N and 60 N are primarily used in postoperative cases. 50 N to 30 N springs should be used after half of the wearing time as recommended by the surgeon has passed.
Patients who have been treated in a conservative manner suffering from: muscular imbalance, adicular irritation syndrome, developing spinal stenosis, irritation of the sacroiliac joint, as well as those who are undergoing preventative stabilisation could benefit from spring strengths ranging between 30 N and 50 N. These strengths are always measured in relation to the individual constitution of the patient.
Patients who have been treated in a conservative manner suffering from: NPP (Nucleus Pulposus Prolapse), spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, osteochondrosis, spondylolisthesis are to be supplied with spring strengths ranging from 60 N to 80 N.
