The new Spinomed® – support that fits.
The spine-straightening back braces Spinomed has been contributing towards effective and side effect-free therapy for decades – especially for osteoporotic vertebral body fractures.
Initial professional fitting is required to determine correct size and to measure and adjust for individual patient requirement.
Safe companions in everyday life: medi has further developed the proven original and is now setting new standards with innovative product features.
The focus: The back brace should support effectively, fit perfectly and be barely noticeable, so that patients want to wear it.
A pivot joint and other properties such as the shoulder strap system with an immediate straightening effect enable easy handling, optimum fit and greater user comfort.
For a life with more mobility – and guideline-conformant, successful therapy.
The new Spinomed®
The innovative swivel joint decouples the back splint from the hip belt – for a secure fit and high user comfort in motion.
Shoulder Strap System
Indication-specific rearward pull direction ensures straightening effect and pain relief. Pre-shaped shoulder straps with large opening enables easy donning and doffing.
New Sizing System
The expanded sizing system increases the quality of care.
Flexible swivel joints enable an optimal fit. Gripping aids on both sides offer easy and effortless closing.
Optimised climate management and improved padding thanks to the new design and material increase user comfort.
The original reinterpreted – Spinomed®
The Spinomed® For an active everyday life with chronic back pain and osteoporosis.
The new Spinomed back brace for active therapy of osteoporotic vertebral body fractures.
The Spinomed® back brace sets new standards in the functional therapy of osteoporotic vertebral body fractures: the patient receives a multifunctional orthosis that mobilises him safely, effectively, simply and comfortably in everyday life.
Osteoporosis therapy with Spinomed back orthoses
Biofeedback – what is it?
Spinomed back orthoses are effective primarily because of the “biofeedback principle”. But what is it exactly?
Biofeedback is a procedure used in behavioural medicine that involves the feedback of physical signals that commonly occur unconsciously.
With unique biofeedback methods, these types of functions become consciously perceptible. This way, patients can learn to use them for their benefit.
What is the effect of biofeedback on osteoporosis therapy?
If osteoporosis patients get into an incorrect posture (hunchback), the orthosis automatically reminds them of the correct posture using gentle pressure.
The users tighten the muscles in the torso area and straighten up their upper body using muscle strength. The orthosis is a training device for building up the trunk muscles.
Osteoporosis specialist Professor Helmut W. Minne and medi have jointly developed the Spinomed and Spinomed active orthoses.
The elastic materials of the Spinomed back orthoses, together with the back splint, exert noticeable pulling forces on the pelvic and shoulder area.
Studies demonstrate the effect of Spinomed back orthoses.
The back orthoses strengthen the muscles and relieves pain as our tendency to sway and risk falling is limited, reducing the risk of subsequent fractures.
Randomised clinical trials (1 & 2*) confirmed the muscle-strengthening effect of Spinomed and Spinomed active.
The stomach muscles were strengthened by up to 56 per cent.
The kyphosis angle were reduced by up to 11 per cent.
The pain was alleviated by up to 47 per cent.
Daily restrictions are reduced by up to 54 per cent.
General physical health is increased by up to 18 per cent.
Spinomed back orthoses help to reduce the risk of falling and, therefore, the risk of further fractures, as they reduce body swaying by up to 25 per cent.
Scientific Osteological Societies (DVO) refers to the scientifically proven efficiency and identical mode of action of Spinomed and Spinomed active in its therapy guideline.
