... 20 years of Spinomed - the only osteoporosis orthosis with scientifically proven effectiveness!
medi can now look back at 20 years of expertise in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral body fractures (1997-2017).
Spinomed back braces make it possible to provide guideline-compliant therapy. They activate and mobilise osteoporosis patients and if they slump into a faulty posture (rounded back), their braces exert gentle pressure to remind them of the correct posture.
This leads them to unconsciously tense their back- and trunk muscles and straighten the upper body, thus using their own muscle power for a more upright posture.
The efficacy of Spinomed back braces has been proven scientifically (Pfeifer M., et al.: Effect of a new spinal orthosis on posture, trunk strength and quality of life in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis: a randomised trial, in: Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2004;83:177-186; Pfeifer M., et al. Effects of two newly developed spinal orthoses on trunk muscle strength, posture, and quality-of-life in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis: a randomised trial, in: Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2011;90:805-815)...
... So our Spinomed braces
Furthermore, Spinomed orthoses help reduce the risk of further falls and fractures, because they reduce body sway by 23 %.
Dirk Vogel, Head of Product Management Orthopaedics at medi Germany:
"Many years ago we collaborated with Prof Helmut Minne, MD in developing the first Spinomed back brace. Ever since then, medi has been setting the standard in the treatment of osteoporosis. However, guideline-compliant care is certainly not all we care about. Patients want their braces to be easy to use, which is also a decisive factor for successful treatment. This is why all variants of the Spinomed back brace are particularly simply to handle."
