The modules of the Lumbar Orthosis Softec Lumbo from the German company Bauerfeind consist of an anatomically shaped plastic shell and two pairs of corset rods of different hardness and elasticity.
They are put together in different combinations, in phases, and inserted in a support made of elastic knitted fabric.
The strongest support comes from using the shell together with the stiffest rods, and the gentlest support from using the more flexible corset rods.
When selecting the materials and building up the different components, special attention was paid to ensuring that the patient would not only progress in their treatment, but would also find the orthosis easy to put on and wear.
For example, special finger pockets make the fastening easy to use, even for weak patients.
