Orthoses, Thoracic, Support, Sternal, Belt

Definition : Thoracic support narrow flexible orthoses designed to encircle the thorax (i.e., belts) to provide support and to keep the sternum and associated muscles in appropriate position. These devices are usually made of narrow pieces of elastic fabric or plastic that may include hook-and-loop closures (e.g., Velcro) for adjustment of the size of the belts; the orthoses are usually reinforced with metallic stays for appropriate support of the muscles and sternum. Belt thoracic support orthoses are used mainly to support and compress the sternum and/or thoracic muscles from traumatic injuries (e.g., bone fracture) and/or to provide relief from pain and strain.

Heart Hugger ‐ Sternum Support Harness can help prevent this and other complications after Cardiothoracic Surgery.  Heart Hugger is Medicare approved and FDA classified. Heart Hugger helps hospitals save money by reducing the chance of infection and post operative complications. Without sternal support, patients lack the confidence to continue with respiratory therapy exercises and coughing due to extreme pain. This results in longer hospital stays and increased complication rates, which will now be paid for by Hospitals, not Medicare.
