Achieve superior truncal compression with less effort!
The New CorFit Advantage utilizes the PowerWrap lacing system to provide superior compression with less effort. The lacing system creates a mechanical advantage, reducing the amount of force required to properly tension the support. Two independent pulls provide focused compression on the lumbar region, sacral region, or both. The CorFit Advantage allows increased spinal flexion when the top portion of the support is tensioned more than the bottom portion as well as increased spinal extension when these tensions are reversed.
“The lacing system on the CorFit Advantage allows very weak or injured patients to easily tighten or adjust this support without overextension.” – Philip Mattison, CEO, Core Products International, Inc.
Fitting your patient with a Corfit Advantage support
Before placing the support on your patient’s waist, you first want to loosen the support by reattaching the side pulls to the edges of the hook and loop closure on the body of the belt. Then, to ensure the support is placed properly, align the back panel’s bottom edge with the distal sacrum. Once the support is in place, tighten it using the PowerWrap lacing system pulls. The top pull will increase compression to the lumbar region and the bottom pull will increase compression to the sacral region. For a better fit, re-tension the support while the patient is lying on the back with their feet on the floor. This adjustment allows the trunk to decompress without downward pressure from internal organs.
All CorFit supports are designed to be proportional in height and width. Taller supports are designed to fit larger patients and shorter supports are designed for petites and children. The proportional sizing helps reduce inventory in clinics while maintaining the versatility needed to fit most patients.
