Title
(EN) VARIABLE TENSION BREASTPLATE BAND
(FR) BANDAGE THORACIQUE A TENSION VARIABLE
Abstract
(EN)
Variable tension, light, non-stretch breastplate band (1) provided with Velcro$m(3) tape at one end (4) for initially tensioning the thorax-immobilizing device. The band is inserted into an optional metal part which partially rotates to tighten the band about the thorax and further tighten it in the event of coughing or discomfort. The device of the invention ensures that the thorax is continuously immobilized and is suitable, in particular, for patients who have been discharged from hospital after undergoing thorax surgery. The breastplate band enhances healing of the sternum, helping to consolidate it during the three or six months it needs to be worn, while allowing the patient to dress normally. The wearer of the device can tighten and further tighten it in a single operation.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un bandage (1) léger, non extensible, muni d'un bout de Velcro$m(3) à une extrémité (4) qui permet de lui donner une tension initiale, assurant une relative immobilité du thorax. Ce bandage passe dans une pièce métallique ou autre, permettant, par semi rotation, de raccourcir la bande autour du thorax, assurant une tension supplémentaire en cas de quintes de toux, etc (table 1/2, fig. 1, 2, 3). Le dispositif, selon l'invention, est particulièrement destiné aux personnes sorties de l'hôpital après une opération chirurgicale thoracique, leur assurant une nécessaire et constante immobilisation relative du thorax, pour faciliter la cicatrisation et la consolidation du sternum, pendant les trois ou six mois nécessaires, tout en s'habillant normalement, passant à la tension supplémentaire, ou le retour à la tension initiale, d'un seul geste.
