The digestive or thoracic belt is a support for the post-operative follow-up after a digestive, cardiac or thoracic surgery, or to compensate for any temporary deficiency of the abdominal wall without pathological character (post-partum, post-operative condition).
It allows to exert a uniform and quantified pressure on the whole treated area.
It is intended to provide support to the abdominal or thoracic wall for analgesic purposes. It prevents post-operative edema and facilitates healing.
In the case of ostomates (after colostomy, ileostomy…), it ensures a perfect support all around the ostomy pouch. It is essential to carry out a preliminary test of the belt: visualize the exact location of the stoma and delimit precisely with a pencil on the breastplate. The pattern must be done by our services or by a health professional.
For optimal effectiveness, the application of the digestive or thoracic belt is done immediately after the operation. The duration of application depends on the medical prescription.
The first application must be done by a health professional.
