  Back orthosis for vertebral extension in osteoporosis and strengthening of the core musculature  
     
     
 
 
Bone loss – also known as osteoporosis – is a metabolic disease in which more bone mass is destroyed than is being replaced. The bones become porous and lose substance and strength. This process often progresses unnoticed over a long period. The first bone fracture caused by the osteoporosis, for example a vertebral fracture, often occurs out of the blue. Osteoporosis is one of the ten most common diseases and is characterised by brittle bones, bent posture and decreasing height.

Since 2006, in addition to drug therapy and the recommendation of exercise and medical physiotherapy, the use of braces to straighten the spine have become a firm part of the guidelines of the German-speaking Association of Specialists in Osteology

Indications

osteoporotic bone collapse in the thoracic and lumbar spine
juvenile Scheuermann's disease
hyperkyphosis with chronic back pain

 
 

Mode of action

When you wear the Spinomed, your back muscles will be activated. As a result, your upper body will be gently straightened, countering the curvature of the spine which is typical of osteoporosis. The Spinomed stimulates the body’s own muscle resources. The back splint will have been individually adjusted by your orthopaedic technician. Together with the straps, the brace supports your muscles in holding your shoulders back and straightening your upper body. You will still be able to freely move your shoulders and arms as well as breathe unhindered. If the brace has been optimally adjusted, it can reduce pain and increase day-to-day mobility.
