||The Cardio Thoracic Harness was developed by a patient after his heart surgery and recovery. He discovered the need for a device that would provide constant wound support, relieve pain and discomfort, and be comfortable enough to wear under clothing for long periods of time. A support device that the patient can wear during the rehabilitation period and beyond. The first harness that is "User Friendly".
The Cardio Thoracic Harness reduces sternal instability if used immediately after surgery and during rehabilitation. The CTH is designed to stabilize the sternum and bony thorax during recovery. Patients feel less pain and discomfort during involuntary movement, especially pain associated with wire stress. By wearing the CTH, the patient is receiving support before the pain begins. The Harness increases upper torso movement, particularly that of the arms and hands by reduction of the transfer of energy to the chest wall musculature when performing upper body tasks, such as walking, opening doors, getting out of bed, etc. With less pain, the patient can feel more comfortable and relaxed.
Having the Cardio Thoracic Harness supporting the patient's every move will help the patient to heal faster. The patient will receive supervised instruction in the use of the CTH. Aztec-Life believes that the Cardio Thoracic Harness will provide the support and care needed for a successful and complete recovery.
