Description

"ANTALGIC LOMBO-ABDOMINAL BELT"
Traditionally, belts of this type are composed of a rigid dorsal part, reinforced by whales or having locally growths capable of coming to bear on the lumbar and paralumbar regions. Such belts are not entirely satisfactory because, because of their rigidity, and according to their method of attachment, they constitute a yoke completely immobilizing the trunk and hampering movement
In addition, when the user tilts forward, their ends move away from the back, while their central part remains in contact with the hinge area of the back, risking injuring the latter.

 Finally, all current belts reduce the truncated eye of the user.

 The object of the present invention is to provide a lumbar-abdominal belt and yes not only ensures a certain lumbar contention, but also provides an analgesic supplement without hampering the movements of the body and allows the user to practice his current activities and even certain sports.

To this end, at least the rear part of the belt extending to the sides is made of an elastic material transversely and longitudinally, while its dorsal part comprises, on its front face, fastening means capable of cooperating with additional means carried by at least one removable ball which, composed of a pad of compressible and elastic material, can, by transverse, longitudinal or oblique movement, be arranged in any zone of the belt hooking means, so after fitting the belt, to coincide with the painful area of the back and exert on it, and by its summit point, a moderate constant and localized pressure
The local elasticity of the belt makes it possible to ensure good compression, even when the bust is in motion, and above all ensures regular plating of the ball (s) on the painful areas. In addition, the removability of the balls allows them to be positioned precisely on the painful areas and, if necessary, to replace them with other balls of different volume and / or flexibility.

 Other characteristics and advantages will emerge from the description which follows with reference to the appended diagrammatic drawing, representing by way of nonlimiting examples, an embodiment of this belt.

Figure 1 is a plan view from above, showing the belt laid flat
Figure 2 is a perspective view in cross section showing one of the balls relating to the belt
Figure 3 is a partial plan view from above showing the arrangement of the balls on the belt
Figure 4 is a schematic side view showing the belt in the use position.

 In known manner, this belt, intended to come, by its dorsal part, on the lumbar region of the thigh, as shown in FIG. 4, is made up of a band, the ends of which are provided with complementary fastening means and, by example, straps (2) fixed to one of its ends, and able to pass through the rings (3) fixed to the other end. These straps are for example made of hooked velvet, so that the tightening tension can be easily adjusted after folding their ends having passed through the loop (3).

 According to the invention, at least the rear part of this belt, part extending to the sides, is made of a knitted or woven material, and elastic transversely and longitudinally. Its dorsal part (la) which is wider, comprises on its front face hooking means (4) able to cooperate with complementary means carried by one or more removable balls (5). As shown in Figure 2, each ball, having the general shape of a curved disc, elliptical or other, is composed of a pad (6) of compressible and elastic material protected by a fabric envelope (7). On its flat rear face (8), each ball comprises the hooking means (9) able to cooperate with the hooking means (4) of the belt.

In this embodiment, the attachment means (4) and (9) are constituted by velvet bands respectively with loops and hooks.

 Figure 1 highlights that the fastening means (4) of the belt are, in fact, constituted by two velvet bands with loops (4a) and (4b), arranged substantially in the middle of its height and extending over a height (h) whose value is greater than one third of the height (H) of the dorsal part (la) of the belt.

Thanks to this arrangement, each ball (5) can be placed in any zone of the central and dorsal part (la) of the belt and thus be positioned both vertically, along a vertebral axis, and horizontally, according to a metameric axis, only obliquely, so as to coincide perfectly with the painful area of the body.

 In addition, thanks to this removability, it is possible, if necessary, to use only one ball but also to change the balls so as to adapt them both by their shape and by their flexibility to the needs of the user.

 When the belt is positioned on the body (10), as shown in Figure 4, the elastic band (1) adapts intimately to the trunk by pressing perfectly on the lumbar, para-lumbar and ilio-costal regions and contains the muscles wide of the abdomen while respecting the mobility of the last ribs and the expansion of the episcastrium. The plating pressure is transmitted to the painful area through the apex of each ball (5).

 This pressure, moderate but constant, brings to the lumbar compression a very appreciable analgesic complement and accelerating the disappearance of the pain. In addition, and thanks to its elastic structure in all directions, the belt follows the movements of the body without bringing any discomfort to them. As a result, this belt allows not only the practice of current activities but also those of certain sports, which is not the case with current belts.

Claims (5)

 1. Analgesic lumbo-abdominal belt of the type consisting of a belt (1) proper, comprising a wider zone on its dorsal part (la) capable of coming onto the lumbar region of the ribs, and, at its anterior ends, attachment means (2,3) able to cooperate with each other to allow it to be held on the body, characterized in that at least its rear part, extending to the sides, is made of an elastic material transversely and longitudinally, while its dorsal part (la) comprises, on its front face, hooking means (4) able to cooperate with complementary means (9) carried by at least one removable ball (5) which, composed of a pad made of compressible and elastic material, can, by transverse, longitudinal or oblique movement, be arranged in any zone of the belt hooking means (4) so that, after the belt has been fitted, to coincide with the zone back pain and exercise on cell here and by its summit point, a constant and localized moderate pressure.
 2. Belt according to claim 1, characterized in that the hooking means (4) of the balls (5) consist of horizontal strips (4a, 4b) of velvet with loops fixed on the front face of the dorsal part ( la) of the belt and able to cooperate with complementary bands (9) made of hooked velvet, and fixed on the rear face (8) of each of the balls.
 3. Belt according to all of claims 1 and 2, characterized in that the fastening strips (4a, 4b) of the belt extend substantially in the middle of the widest part and over more than a third of the height of it.
 4. Belt according to any one of claims 1 to 3, characterized in that each ball has the general shape of a disc, elliptical or other, but curved with flat posterior face.
 5. Belt according to any one of claims 1 to 4, characterized in that each ball is part of a series of balls differentiated by the flexibility and the shape of their pad.
