What you should know about reduction of axial and bending load
Let us tell you more about how Truform lumbo-sacral (L.S.) orthoses alter the normal kinematics of the human spine to provide a definitive zone of protection for your patients.
LS orthoses have been shown in literature and by current testing to have certain definitive protective functions. These functions include an increase in intra-abdominal pressure maintained on the average which thereby lessens the average axial loading and bending loading on the spine.
Truform's male and female LS orthoses, when properly fit, cause an increase in resting abdominal pressure thereby reducing both axial and bending load. Inflatable corsets have shown an average 24% reduction of intra-disc pressure. *
In addition, Truform LS orthoses effectively limit the range of motion of the spine by offering your patient a proven 50% to 57% reduction in spinal rotation between the third lumbar and the tenth thoracic vertebrae (L3-T10).** Truform garments provide your patients with that extra margin of safety. Truform... the name you can trust for total support... engineering excellence in Functional Biomechanics. For complete infomiation on IN VIVO NONINVASIVE tests, write Mr. Alex Dumbadze, Director of Sales and Education.
