The Chest/Abdominal Wall Brace of “Orthoteh” supports the whole surface of the chest or the abdominal area. The construction is made of two overlapping elastic bands. They are fixed on the front with partial overlapping for improved stability. The front height can be adjusted between 20cm and 30cm. The back part has two plastic stays built in which protect the elastic bands from folding too much. The elastic bands are made of a breathable hypoallergenic fabric. They don’t contain latex and are very durable when used according to the instructions.
To put on
1. Place the brace at the appropriate height with the supporting stays situated symmetrically. The latter are skewed and the space between them widens towards the hips.
2. Stretch and fix the lower elastic band in place. If the product is on too tight, loosen it. If you can’t feel an elastic pressure, you should probably fix it in a tighter position.
3. Stretch and fix the upper elastic band in place. It should overlap the lower one according to the needs. Adjust the tightness.
Washing and maintenance instructions
Before washing stick the Velcro elements against one another. Remove the two inserts before washing. The product should be washed manually at 30°C. Do not use bleach! Drying gently without twisting the product with force will increase its life span. It’s recommended that the product dries at room temperature without a direct heat source. Do not tumble dry!
