Patient lives matter, beyond survival!
The Journal of Medical Case Reports suggests that sternal dehiscence and instability are a significant cause of persistent pain and limited quality of life for patients who have undergone median sternotomy for open heart surgery. Considerable wound pain with breathing, palpable sternal instability and local inflammation can persist for months. In addition, deep surgical wound infections (DSWIs) are rare but serious complications.
Sternal Vest use confirms the case study observations of deeper breathing due to soft tissue immobilization and prevention of sternal instabilities. Our patented material provides Three Dimensional Stretch™ to ensure a comfortable fit with medical grade compression. Antimicrobial protection aids mitigation of infection risk while the fabric is crafted from premium, incredibly soft yarns to avoid irritation at skin bulge points or openings. The exclusive, Engineered Stability Grid means our Sternal Vest is durable, retains it's shape and stays in place. Certified by COOLMAX® moisture management to ensure long term wear with comfort.
