  • for inflammatory phenomena, raised scars with swelling, redness and overheating
  • Sensory disorders
  • greater restriction of cardiopulmonary performance
  • Danger of increased blood pressure with the aid of an attached device and increased physical performance
Side effects:
Bandages or orthoses that are too tight can lead to local pressure or, in rare cases, constrict blood vessels or nerves: Due to the principle of the bandage (delor dosage by increasing the intra-abdominal pressure), there may be an increased risk of diseases associated with increased intra-abdominal pressure, such as hypertension, venous reflux disorder, inguinal hernias, reflux complaints, etc.


Modular system (4-step therapy) see ID-number OW/00862:
  • Stage 1: dislocation, greatest possible flexion
  • Stage 2: stabilise, weakened flexion
  • Stage 3: mobilization, return to physiological lordosis
  • Step 4: activate, relief through body suspension
Due to the plastic frame and the abdominal pad, a deflowering of the lumbar spine is achieved in the 1st stage, the rotation is clearly limited. In the 2nd stage, flexible rods are inserted into the back frame and the abdominal support is removed, thereby reducing flexion and approximately restoring physiological lordosis. In the 3rd stage, the back frame is replaced by a pad,
what remains is a high back support bodice. In the 4th stage the upper bodice is removed, it remains as a long-term therapeutic aid.

The T-Flex orthoses consist of a bodice set and a plastic set, which can be ordered and delivered together or each in a separate packaging unit. The individual elements must be assembled by the orthopaedic technician and adapted to the anatomical conditions of the patient and according to the doctor's instructions.
