OPTEC's standard models of anterior thoracic extensions (ATE) are the Sternal Pad Kit (SPK) and Pectoral Pad Kit (PPK). The SPK includes a padded sternal panel and easily attaches to prefabricated braces with hook and loop to extend anterior height and support for a versatile TLSO. Each ATE can be easily removed to decrease the amount of support as the patient recovers to a LSO.
This version of the SPK comes un-attached to the spinal orthosis. Complete attachment plate assembly is included as a kit for custom applications.
Typical Indications for adding an ATE to a prefabricated spinal orthosis: Compression FX, Spinal Stenosis Kyphosis, Post-Op Spinal Stabilization, Transverse Plane Control
