Frequently Bought Together

How to Use Optec SALO TLSO Back Support

1. Start with the person lying down. Gently turn them to the side and put the back part of the brace on their back. Make sure the bottom part fits above the hips but below the ribs. Hold the back in place and turn the person back onto their back.
Place brace on patients back

2. Once they're on their back, adjust the back part so it sits just above the hips but below the ribs. Now, put the front part on their chest, matching it with the back part. Make sure their undershirt is smooth under the brace to avoid pinching their skin.
adjust the position

3. Tighten the bottom straps on one side, then do the same on the other side. Keep going with each strap until you tighten the top ones. Pull the undershirt upward diagonally as you tighten to prevent pinching.
Tighten the bottom Velcro strap on one side.

4. After tightening, make sure there's no gap between the front and back parts. For the best fit, tighten the straps again with the person lying flat with bent knees and flat feet. Check that the brace fits well and doesn't cause any discomfort.

How to Care SALO TLSO Back Support

  • Get a snug-fitting undershirt (one size smaller than usual) to wear under the brace.
  • Nurses will take off the brace now and then during acute care to check your skin.
  • Hand wash the brace at 86°F with mild soap. Don't use direct heat or sunlight to dry it; let it air dry. No ironing or dry cleaning.
  • Make sure to rinse the brace thoroughly after washing to avoid skin irritation and damage.
  • Your body might change size because of the brace's pressure and reduced swelling after surgery. If you can't adjust the straps properly, see your practitioner to resize or replace the brace.
  • Your practitioner knows your health situation and is part of your overall care. Follow their instructions, even if they differ from the general guidelines.
  • Be extra careful with patients who can't feel much to avoid pinching, especially around the waistline.
