Must be ordered in addition to an OPTEC TLSO.
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 is attached 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. 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
