(2) Place the neck part of the orthosis at the centre back of the throat.
(3) Then place the front of the Ortel C4 Vario at the centre of the back part.
(4) Hold the front of the orthosis firmly and place the ends tightly around the patient‘s neck. Fasten the orthosis by alternately tightening the rip tape bands, making sure they are the same length on both sides. If necessary, the surplus at the ends can be cut off with scissors. If the orthosis has been fitted correctly, it should no longer be possible for the chin to slip.
(5) The option of adjusting the angle of the chin ensures optimal pressure distribution and an improved fit to the anatomical conditions. Pull out the buttons for angle adjustment to fine tune the correct chin position. Adjust the chin position and fasten in place by pushing the buttons back in. Please ensure that the same height adjustment is performed on both sides.

In 1919 Otto Thämert founded a company specializing in the trade of foundationwear and bodices. With time the search and development of new products led to increasingly better results. The company started production of orthopaedic devices. The close cooperation with doctors and orthopaedic specialists led to numerous inovative products.
In the past 20 yearsThämert had established lasting partnerships in the UK, USA, Sweden, France, Italy, and Spain.
In 2008 Thuasne acquired 100% of Thämert. Today Thuasne embodies the tradition and quality of two well-established companies with rich history.
