This groin hernia band from Viofix can be used for the treatment of an inguinal hernia. You wear this inguinal hernia band as a conservative treatment for an inguinal hernia or for support after surgery.
A single inguinal hernia band (from Viofix) is used for people who have suffered a inguinal hernia or abdominal wall fracture.
With a groin fracture, a tear (hernia) occurs in the abdominal wall. This usually happens at the level of the groin. Treatment for a groin hernia is often surgical or conservative. However, conservative treatment can also serve as support before or after surgery. Would you like to receive more information about this? Feel free to contact us and ask one of our specialists for free advice.
You can use a groin hernia band when you have an abdominal fracture. This can be in the groin region, but also when it concerns the lower abdominal wall. The inguinal hernia band supports the abdominal wall by means of a silicone pad. In this way it is prevented that too much pressure is created on the fracture, which might break the abdominal wall (again). This often happens with the smallest movements such as coughing, pressing or sneezing.
