Expander 4 Panel TLSO PPX Back Support Brace
The patented Expander TLSO w/DLK & ATE features a unique air pocket expansion system that provides effective motion control in the sagittal-coronal-transverse plane. Posterior rigid panel extends from sacrococcygeal junction to inferior scapular spine surrounding torso to provide lateral strength and support. When inﬂated, the Expander provides traction between the inferior of the rib cage and the superior part of the trochanter creating weight-bearing forces away from the lower back and reducing pressure in the lumbar spine. The plastic panels on the Expander can be removed to adapt to all facets of patient’s rehabilitation.
Optec USA's PPX and SPX have all the convenience of the typical SPK and PPK with one outstanding advantage: remarkably easier adjustment. 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.
