Contains a pad that applies gradual pressure and support to the weakened muscles of the groin with comfortable and adjustable compression on the hernia
Retards development of the hernia and hastens recovery after surgery
Can be worn under clothing without obstruction
Many trusses do not fit well, and most doctors and surgeons do not prescribe trusses because it is difficult to design a truss which keeps the pad permanently in contact with the hernia. Unless a truss can achieve this purpose, the hernia may continue to enlarge. Even some of today's trusses use metal springs to apply pressure to the hernia, via a pad which can be quite hard, and usually bulges into the hernia. This inward bulging prevents the edges of the hernia from coming together and could, in theory, enlarge the hernia. AT Surgical trusses are made with a lightweight construction that keeps the removable pads in a stabilizing position, so you don't feel discomfort, such as cutting, binding or restriction. The adjustable strap secures with a hook and loop closure, so it stays in place all day, and the compression pads are made from closed-cell foam, with a higher compressive strength due to a special porous noncontiguous cellular structure. Designed to apply support at the proper angle; upwards against the rupture opening, counteracting the downward pressure of the abdominal organs and the natural tendency of the bowels to push outward.
