Hernia Support Belts

Hernia Support Belts

Support belts or Truss - whats the difference?

A lot of our customers come to us wanting a truss or support belt, unaware that there are more modern solutions for the problem of a Inguinal Hernia. We do not sell a truss so lets describe the differences:

The Inguinal Hernia Truss

1) A truss is typically a three strap leather appliance typically with a spherical padded hemisphere shape.
2) The truss will typically move away from the hernia site on bending over or with any large lateral movement resulting in readjustment throughout the day.
3) The hernia truss design has unfortunately not altered since medieval times.

The Inguinal Hernia Compression Brief

1) Uses a different variety of cotton/elastan weaves to make up the brief so that direct pressure is only applied next to the hernia site.
2) Because it is a brief, the hernia is always contained and does not need adjustment once worn.
3) Typically has a small foam pad directly over the site of the hernia fitting into a pouch in the front of the brief which adds gentle direct pressure to the site.

All our briefs are modern in design and appeal and come in a variety of colours across each product model.
