Check out our line of back braces in St. Catharines and their benefits. We offer the following braces:
Active support with stabilizing functional elements
If the back is stiff and bent and can no longer be fully straightened without assistance, DorsoTrain can help. This orthosis, shaped like a body with lateral body straps and a plastic rod integrated into the back section, aligns the spine and gives you support. It is therefore suitable in cases of osteoporosis, stiff thoracic spine and hunched backs.
Active support for muscular stabilization of the lumbar spine
Lumbago, sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD): there are many names for pain in the lower back. LumboTrain® active supports can help. The triangular friction pad in the support provides a stimulating massage effect to the muscles of the lower back with every movement to help to reduce tension in the lumbar region and relieve pain.
Stabilizing support for relief of the lumbar spine
LordoLoc is suitable for use as a back support for the stabilization of the lumbar spine, for example in the event of chronic lumbar vertebral syndrome. The stabilizing orthosis with four 91/4" integral anatomically contoured flexible lightweight aluminum stays has a muscle-activating effect, relieves the spine and is very low-profile. The degree of stabilization can be adjusted to provide optimal individual support to the lower back.
SacroLoc® / SacroLoc® ES
Stabilizing orthosis for relief of the pelvis and the sacroiliac joints
The SacroLoc® orthosis can provide the correct support for sacroiliac joint syndrome (SI joint syndrome) and pain. It stabilizes and relieves pressure on the pelvis and symphysis and, with its two-part visco-elastic cushion (pad), massages the sacroiliac joints. This stimulates circulation, thus helping the healing process.
Stabilizing orthosis for relief of the lumbar spine
In the event of pain in the lumbar spine (lumbar vertebral syndrome) or moderate muscle weakness, LumboLoc aligns the lumbar spine and relieves the intervertebral discs. Anatomically contoured corset stays at the rear of the orthosis support the back while an individually adjustable compression acts upon the lumbar spine to control motion and limit pain. LumboLoc is easy to adapt to individual body shapes providing the perfect fit.
LumboLoc® Forte ES
Stabilizing orthosis for optimal spinal posture and relief of the lumbar spine
In cases of lumbar vertebral syndrome or severe muscular weakness of the spine, LumboLoc Forte acts as a fixed support on the lumbar spine. Integral corset stays at the back support an anatomically correct posture. In addition, two different pressure cushions (pads) in the orthosis can be used to massage either the lumbar region or sacrum.
LumboLoc® Forte XT
Stabilizing for optimal spinal posture and relief of the lumbosacral spine
Stabilizing orthosis for optimal spinal posture and relief of the lumbosacral spine. Providing 360° of abdominal compression along with appropriate postural control, the LumboLoc Forte XT aids in the relief of both acute and chronic low back pain. The anatomical-design and use of Bauerfeind’s superiorly comfortable compressive and stabilizing knit boosts patient compliance, enhancing therapeutic effectiveness.
Functional orthosis for the graduated support of the lumbar and lower thoracic spine
LumboPlus provides emergency treatment in the event of a prolapse (intervertebral disk prolapse) or muscular degeneration. It acts as a pressure-relieving support from the lumbar spine to the lower thoracic spine using eight to ten corset stays in an anatomical knit. The functional orthosis can be put on and taken off easily, even by older patients.
Multifunctional orthosis for stabilization of the lower spine
Following an injury or condition of the lumbar spinal column causing lower lumbar pain and instability such as vertebral displacement (spondylolisthesis) or lower lumbar vertebral fractures, mobilization of the muscles of the back can be promoted with varying degrees of intensity using the modular orthosis SoftTec® Lumbo allowing for proper promotion of mobility and greater gains throughout rehabilitation. Individual components of the orthosis can be added, replaced or removed as required to provide appropriate control and compression when necessary. The SofTec Lumbo can be easily adapted and fit to all patient types.
Multifunctional orthosis for straightening and stabilizing the spine
The SofTec® Dorso multi-purpose orthosis is used in cases of vertebral displacement (spondylodesis), and also after operations on tumors, and to keep fractures immobile. It straightens the spine and stabilizes the transition point between the lumbar and thoracic spinal columns. It is almost as easy to put on as a jacket and is easily adjustable in several places.
