Recovering from spinal injuries or surgeries is a complex process that often requires the support of specialized medical devices. Among these, spinal braces play a crucial role. The Horizon™ 637 LSO, a product of Aspen Medical Products, exemplifies the advanced technology and thoughtful design that goes into creating these essential aids. This blog post delves into the concept of 'stepping down' in spinal braces, highlighting how the Horizon™ 637 LSO transitions to the Horizon PRO for ongoing management of recurring ailments, thus providing a comprehensive insight into the recovery journey and the role of adaptable bracing solutions.
Understanding the Horizon™ 637 LSO
The Horizon™ 637 LSO is designed to offer trunk stability and targeted compression, supporting fatigued muscles that are often a consequence of surgery or injury. It features movable, rigid side panels that provide lateral support and create a comfortable environment for healing. Remarkably, this brace is one-size adjustable, comfortably fitting waist sizes ranging from 24-50 inches, and up to 70 inches with extension panels. This adaptability is crucial for a wide range of patients with varying needs.
The Unique Features of Horizon™ 637 LSO
The Horizon™ 637 LSO stands out with its moveable rigid side panels, offering increased lateral control for patients requiring additional support. These panels can be adjusted or removed as the patient's recovery progresses, demonstrating the brace's adaptability. The brace also boasts a pull-through sizing mechanism for quick and easy adjustment, and Aspen’s patented 4:1 mechanically advantaged SlickTrack™ tightening system. This system allows independent tightening of the top and bottom, enabling patients to localize compression where it's most needed. Additionally, the tri-band technology system and integrated vertical stays ensure stability and maintain structural integrity, essential for effective compression and flexibility.
Stepping Down to Support Recovery
A key aspect of the Horizon™ 637 LSO is its ability to 'step down' to support recovery. Regardless of the initial configuration required by a patient, all Horizon braces can transition to the Horizon PRO. This feature is particularly beneficial for managing recurring ailments, offering a lower-profile option when less support is needed. This adaptability not only aids in the immediate recovery phase but also provides a long-term solution for ongoing spinal support.
