LSO, stabilisation orthosis, abdominal pressure, prefabricated


Circular partial or whole elastic fabric support with eventually extra supports on particular positions. The circular fabric support stabilises the abdomen by compression, enhances propriocepsis and normalises the body posture. The corset immobilises the lumbar spine and allows some flexibility and mobility of the vertebral joints.
Different variants exist, such as:
* lateral or ventral opening
* two to six metal bars on the back
* lumbar pad possible
* elastic parts possible
* ventral fabric pad with straps to the back.
