An umbilical hernia is a subcutaneous bulge (hernia) of the peritoneum through an opening (fracture) or other weak spot in the abdominal wall. With increasing pressure in the abdominal cavity when laughing, crying, sneezing, etc., the swelling can bulge out and become larger. Normally this is not painful. Is there suddenly severe pain? Can the swelling not be pushed back? Then the fracture is usually in a pinch. Acute surgery will be necessary to prevent tissue death. Fortunately, this rarely happens.
To prevent the umbilical hernia from growing, it is important to put constant pressure on the fracture region. The Orliman Navel Rupture Band has been specially made for this. This comfortable bandage for the navel is made of a breathable material, provided with a soft navel pad. The bandage closes with a simple Velcro fastener, making the umbilical hernia almost invisible under clothing.
For proper operation and high comfort, it is important to determine the correct size umbilical hernia band. This is very simple for the Orliman Umbilical hernia band. You measure the circumference of your waist, where you will wear the umbilical hernia. Then find the matching size in the table below. When in doubt between two sizes, we recommend the smaller of the two.
|Measure||Circumference of the waist (in cm)|
|1 / S||60-95 cm|
|2 / L||95 - 125 cm|
|3 / XL||125-150 cm|
