AbdoCare 30 binder
Specifically designed binder for postoperative use, is made of an elastic material which permits hook closure to fasten anywhere onto the material. To be used post-operatively after abdominal or thoracic surgery, to provide relief of surgical wounds and to prevent incisional hernia. Also for providing pain relief and for early mobilization of patients.
The closure adheres anywhere on the binder which allows the correct amount of compression and ensures a custom fit for the patient. The binder provides efficient pain relief and support, compression of the abdomen while enabling early mobilization of the patient. If needed, the binder can be cut to adjust its length and height. It is also possible to cut a hole in the material if necessary, to uncover a stoma or drainage.
AbdoCare is available in different sizes and heights.
Level of compression: Medium, 2 out of 3.
Measurement: Size 1: 75-100 cm, 2: 95-120 cm, 3: 115-140 cm, 4: 140-190 cm, 5: 190-240 cm. To determine size, measure the largest circumference over intended placement, e.g. abdomen, hip or chest.
Note that the belts are small in size. If the dimension around the intended placement belongs to the upper half of size 1 or 2, preferably choose the size above. This usually gives a better fit and the ability to adjust support and compression to a greater extent.
