Protects the ribs with every breath

If the ribs are broken it is essential to reduce pain so as to prevent shallow breathing and stabilise the region to help the fracture to heal. The Cellacare® Thorax F/M is a ready-to-use support which is used for conservative treatment of rib fractures and chest bruising. It is also used for postoperative pressure relief after thoracic or abdominal surgery.

Adjusted to fit the anatomy

This broken rib support is available in two versions, M and F, which are designed for the male and female anatomy respectively. A wide hook-and-loop fastener facilitates accurate fitting and adjustment of compression. The sturdy material of the belt, with high lateral stability and 100% lengthwise stretch, distributes pressure evenly over the entire area, without bulging or the edges rolling up. The padded ventral insert is very gentle on the injury or wound site. Furthermore, Cellacare® Thorax supports are easy to put on when patients are prone.
