VERTAMAX & EVOTEC NEW COLORS

VertaMax and Evotec by OPTEC USA orthoses keep getting better! Now, both Evotec and VertaMax are available in two new colors: beige and gray.

What’s so great about these back braces? The corset of the OPTEC USA’s Evotec and VertaMax is designed and manufactured utilizing dense elastic material which provides significantly more compression than those conventionally used for lumbar supports. This means that, unlike some other braces, these orthoses will keep their form and provide consistent compression during your patient’s recovery.

Each style includes its respective anterior and posterior plastic panels to stabilize and immobilize your patient to the proper degree. These products have the following PDAC Approved L-Codes: VertaMax – L0627 Custom Fitted or L0642 OTS; Evotec LSO – L0631 Custom Fitted or L0648 OTS; and Evotec MAX – L0637 Custom Fitted or L0650 OTS.

The streamline design is undetectable under clothing and, with our new color options, you can offer each patient a choice between beige, black, or gray. So don’t wait!

VENUM HYBRID: ONE BRACE FOR ALL PEOPLE

The wait is over – it’s here! The ONE BRACE that fits above all the rest! Fabricated using the most advanced technology and materials, the New VENUM® HYBRID is the pinnacle of ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL spinal systems.  Why do we say that? There are at least 5 reasons that the VENUM® HYBRID is the ONLY brace you will ever need to fit patients of all different sizes and shapes.  

1. The Savings: The adjustable ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL feature of the VENUM® HYBRID means you will not have to worry about what sizes to keep in stock because in one brace you can fit practically anyone: from a slender adolescent to a hefty security guard. 


2. The Versatility: On any given day you might meet patients with activity levels ranging from a young athlete recovering from a sports injury to a post-operative geriatric patient that requires immediate pain relief and comfortable support. Both of these patients and anyone in-between is a great candidate for the VENUM® HYBRID. 


3. The Material: The VENUM® HYBRID is so comfortable and soft that you really should take the time to feel this brace for yourself. Yet, the brace is still resilient, durable, and breathable. 


 

4. The Features: Young patients who are likely to recover quickly will like the streamline 3 in 1 step-down design that allows them to gradually decrease the level of immobilization as they heal. Whereas geriatric patients will appreciate the ease of donning and doffing with ergonomic arthritic grips as well as the 6:1 closure compression ratio that will allow them to easily get the relief and immobilization they need.


5. The Options: The VENUM® HYBRID is available in LSO & TLSO configurations. You can decide whether you would like a single or double-pull cable pulley system. And the brace is offered in three PDAC Approved models: X (L0637), Pro (L0631), and Lite (L0627). For each model, the posterior panel is available in independent or central support panel designs which create a natural support system for the spine that can be customized to provide the perfect fit. The corset itself adjusts to waist sizes from 21” to 63” but, if necessary, we also offer an optional extender panel that adds 10” to the circumference. 

So, now you know why we are so crazy about the VENUM® HYBRID!

Call us today at 888-982-8181 or 1-770-513-7380 to try it for yourself. Hearing about this revolutionary brace is one thing but feeling is believing. Click here for more info: http://www.optecusa.com/catalog/venum-all

The Stealth TLSO: Complete Immobilization - Complete Comfort

OPTEC's Stealth TLSO provides motion restriction for the thoracic and lumbar regions. The posterior extends from sacrococcygeal junction to just inferior of the scapular spine with rigid plastic providing lateral strength. The Stealth TLSO is available in 3 Panel and 4 Panel versions, which include a Dorsal Lumbar Kit (DLK) or a DLK with your choice of thoracic attachment. The Stealth TLSO by OPTEC allows you to restrict the thoracic vertebra with the ease of use and precise compression of our unique closure system.
 

Make Life Easier with a PPX or SPX

There are many reasons that an orthotist or physician would choose to have an anterior thoracic extension put on a patient's TLSO.  It may be to get the perfect amount of extension or possibly to make the experience of wearing a back brace more palatable to the patient and cooler for the wearer if they live in a warm climate.  Whatever the reason, many braces are fit with either a Sternal Pad Kit (SPK) or Pectoral Pad Kit (PPK).  But Optec USA has presented an impressive improvement on these standard models.


Optec USA's PPX and SPX have all the convenience of the typical SPK and PPK with one outstanding advantage: remarkably easier adjustment.  While SPKs and PPKs give the freedom of precise extension, it comes at a price.  To bend that solid metal bar, the practitioner must use metal benders, or as one orthotist told me at a trade show, bend it over a counter at the hospital just before fitting the patient. 


Eliminate that effort or, in some cases, embarrassment, with the PPX or SPX.  Instead of needing to manually bend metal to achieve proper extension, all the PPX and SPX require is a simple allen wrench to adjust both the extension and height of the bar.  This simplified adjustment of extension is possible due to the joint, or hinge, that the SPX and PPX are designed with.  These thoracic extension bars make life much easier on both patient and practitioner.  Try an SPX or PPX the next time you order a TLSO from Optec USA and see the difference for yourself.
