Abdominal Support

An abdominal binder is a compression belt which encircles the stomach. They come in many shapes, sizes and widths. They are made from elastic material and have Velcro straps or hook belts for a snug fit. Some even offer lumbar support. An abdominal support is used to provide support after an abdominal surgery. A doctor might recommend the patient to wear an abdominal binder after following procedures –

  • C-section
  • Spinal surgery
  • Hysterectomy
  • Tummy tuck
  • Bariatric surgery

Functions of an abdominal support –

  • Improves respiratory function
  • Maintains abdominal pressure
  • Supports the abdomen

Binding an abdomen after childbirth also helps mothers in retaining their abdominal shape. Abdominal supports decrease post-operative pain and reduce distress. Some people use abdominal binders for their daily activities and weight-lifting.

You can buy abdominal support binders at Medikabazaar, but be sure to buy the right size for best results. To measure your size, measure the widest part of your body which the binder will cover. For men, it’s usually the waist. For women, it’s usually the hips. Check out our entire range of products.
