A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. In many cases, hernias cause no or very few symptoms, although you may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin.The lump can often be pushed back in, or will disappear when you lie down. Coughing or straining may make the lump appear.
A Hernia support, also known as a hernia truss, is used to provide compression around a developing hernia to help prevent the hernia from increasing in size and can offer considerable hernia pain relief.
The Oppo Hernia Truss Single Sided support provides compression around the affected area with targeted compression on the hernia, reducing the inguinal hernia. It has an soft elastic adjustable thigh strap.
The support has other uses as it aims to provide controllable compression over operative site and stabilizes the pelvis following fracture. It also provides controlled compression over the abdomen and upper thighs
