Abstract

The invention concerns a lumbar support device (1) comprising a flexible abdominal belt (2), capable of assuming a tubular shape to closely surround the abdomen of a human being wearing the device (1), the abdominal belt (2) having a ventral portion, two lateral portions and a dorsal portion, characterised by the fact that the device (1) comprises a flexible lower support band (3) mounted on the abdominal belt (2), applying a circular support to the lower abdomen of the user; and two flexible oblique ventral support bands (4 and 5), which intersect across the stomach of the wearer, and which apply a force in an upward direction and in a backward direction so as to match the loads weighing on the spine.

Description

The present invention relates to the field of orthopedic devices, and in particular the field of lumbar support devices. Low back pain, commonly known as back pain or kidney pain, is a major health problem today. It is estimated that in Western societies, three out of four people have suffered or will suffer from lower back pain. Low back pain has important economic implications, since it leads to work disability, but most importantly has serious consequences for the quality of life of those affected, 15 who suffer from sometimes very severe pain, especially during acute low back pain. Classically, lumbar girdles are advised for persons with non-surgical low back pain, such as lumbago, chronic low back pain, lumbosciatic. Such a belt is usually made of a first thick bandage, elastic, which is applied around the waist and close on the belly by fasteners typenvelcro "Over this first 25 thickness, a second semi thickness The circumference, reinforced by flexible whales, supports the back, and the use of a lumbar belt has two effects: a first abdominal compression effect makes it possible to increase the intra-abdominal pressure, which has the consequence of reducing the intra-discal pressure, and thus to reduce the loads on the intervertebral disc.In addition, conventional lumbar belts have an immobilization effect of the spine.In reducing lumbar mobility, lumbar belts limit pain movements, which explains their analgesic action.This reduction in lumbar mobility involves the maintenance of lumbar lordosis, that is to say, the concave curve towards the back described by the back at the level of the lumbar vertebrae. However, the wearing of conventional lumbar belts is often poorly tolerated, especially in a seated position, for example when driving a car, or during handling work, or when performing functional gestures using rotational movements of two scapular and pelvic belts. The discomfort felt by people wearing a lumbar belt in these situations is at the root of many of the lumbar belt wearing halts, and is therefore a cause of therapeutic failure in the treatment of lower back pain. This discomfort is generally due to the excessive stiffness of conventional belts, especially because of the presence of whales or other rigid systems in the back of the belt. These whales, designed to maintain lordosis while standing or lying, are poorly adapted to other positions, especially when the person is sitting or leaning forward. They are therefore too restrictive when a person resumes activity following an acute low back pain attack. The present invention therefore aims to provide a lumbar belt that allows abdominal compression and lumbar relief, while allowing to maintain alignment in the same plane the sacrum and the middle dorsal, ie to maintain the physiological curvatures of the spinal column and to maintain relative mobility of the lumbar region, and this in all positions, including when the subject who wears them is seated or leaning forward and including when the subject who wears them is active, including in sports activities. The present invention is also provided for persons having back problems with abdominal hypotonia (abdominal ptosis). For this purpose, the present invention relates to a lumbar support device, comprising a flexible abdominal belt, adapted to take a tubular shape to closely surround the abdomen of a human being wearing the device, the lap belt having a ventral portion, two lateral parts and a dorsal part, characterized in that the device comprises: - a lower, flexible compression band, attached to the abdominal belt, and extending horizontally in the vicinity of the lower edge of the abdominal belt, the compression band lower portion comprising a central portion secured to the dorsal portion of the lap belt, and two free ends provided with fastening means for closing the lower compression band at the ventral portion of the lap belt; and - two oblique, flexible, abdominal compression bands attached to the lap belt, each oblique band having a lower end attached to the lap belt, adjacent to the lower edge and the lateral portion of the lap belt, each on a respective side of the abdominal belt, said lower end being attached to the lower compression band or directly on the abdominal belt, and a free upper end, able to extend obliquely upwards on the ventral part of the lap belt so that the two oblique bands intersect on said ventral part, the free upper end of each oblique band being provided with fastening means for fixing in the vicinity of the upper edge and in the lateral or dorsal part of the abdominal belt. In a particular embodiment, the abdominal belt is a strip of substantially rectangular shape, and is provided, at at least one of its lateral ends, fixing means for closing the strip on itself around the abdomen of the carrier, in a tubular form. The abdominal belt may have, at each of its lateral ends, complementary fastening means for closing the band on itself around the abdomen of the wearer, in a tubular form. The lap belt may comprise a flexible upper reinforcing band, integrally attached at least on the dorsal portion of the lap belt, and extending horizontally adjacent the upper edge of the lap belt. In a particular embodiment, the lap belt comprises fastening means located in the vicinity of the upper edge and in the lateral or dorsal portion of the lap belt, optionally attached to the upper reinforcing strip, the fastening means being complementary to the means fasteners disposed at the free upper end of the oblique bands for attachment of the free upper end of the oblique bands in the vicinity of the upper edge and in the lateral or dorsal portion of the lap belt. The lap belt may be reinforced in the ventral portion by a lining such as a lining extending vertically over the entire height of the lap belt and horizontally over a portion of the ventral portion of the lap belt. The lap belt and, optionally, the lower compression band and / or the oblique bands and / or the upper reinforcing band and / or the liner may or may be made of a longitudinally elastic fabric. The elasticity of the fabric in the longitudinal direction of the strips allows proper clamping of the device to provide abdominal support especially under the umbilicus. In a particular embodiment, the fixing means of each of the two ends of the lower compression band are complementary and capable of cooperating for fixing said ends 15 one on the other, partly ventral of the abdominal belt. One or more of the lower compression band, the oblique bands, the upper reinforcing band and the liner may be joined to the lap belt and / or to each other by stitching. In a particular embodiment, the lower compression band and / or oblique bands have a width of between 7 and 10 cm, and the upper band of reinforcement has a width of between 5 and 10 cm. In general, the internal face of an element of the lumbar support device is the face intended to be turned towards the body of the wearer of the device when the device is worn. Conversely, the outer face is turned away from the body of the wearer. The terms "horizontal", "horizontal", "horizontal" and "vertical", "vertical", "vertically" refer to the orientation of the device when it is door. The longitudinal axis of the belt is horizontal, and the transverse axis of the belt is vertical. To better illustrate the object of the present invention, will be described below several embodiments, with reference to the accompanying drawings. Figure 1 is a schematic front view of a device according to a particular embodiment of the invention. Figure 2 is a schematic rear view of the device of Figure 1. - Figures 3A to 3E are schematic views of the placement of the device of Figure 1 around the abdomen of a man wearing it. - Figure 4 is a schematic front view of a preferred positioning of a device according to the invention, with respect to a human skeleton. Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, there is shown a lumbar support device 1 according to one embodiment of the invention. In general, the device 1 consists of an abdominal belt 2 on which are reported a lower compression band 3, and two ventral oblique bands. The lap belt 2 is a textile rectangular strip, elastic at least in the longitudinal direction. The belt 2 is able to wrap around a user's abdomen to adopt a tubular shape, closely conforming to the abdominal forms. In use, it therefore adapts to the curves of the user, both at the ventral level and at the dorsal level. The length of the belt 2 is adapted to the waist of the user so that the latter can close the belt 2 around his abdomen by stretching it. The tension exerted on the belt during its closure allows it to create an abdominal compression on the wearer. The closure of the lap belt 2 is performed on the belly of the wearer. The lateral ends of the lap belt 2 thus form its ventral portion, intended to be placed on the belly of the wearer. The central portion of the lap belt 2 forms its dorsal portion, intended to be placed in the back of the wearer. The respective intermediate portions between each end and the central portion of the lap belt 2 form the side portions, intended to be placed on the flanks of the wearer. The closure of the abdominal belt 2 on itself, in tubular form, is effected by means of hooks attached to one end of the lap belt. The hooks are fixed on the inner face of several tabs 14 sewn on the outer face of the lap belt at a first lateral end thereof. The tabs 14 are sewn on the edge of said lateral end of the belt 2, in vertical alignment with each other, and project from this edge about half their length. The closure of the lap belt 2 is done by anchoring the hooks in the tissue of the lap belt 2 at the lateral end opposite the end bearing the hooks. This closure mode allows to adapt the useful length of the belt around the abdomen to different morphologies, or adjust the compression exerted by the belt.

Other fastening means can be envisaged for fastening the belt 2, in particular fastening by cooperation between "velcro" type pieces, that is to say with loops and hooks, fastened to the abdominal belt 2. The dimensions and the position of these parts can be chosen to allow, here too, an adjustment of the useful length of the lap belt 2. It is also possible to envisage a closure by cooperation between two rows of complementary staples, each row being placed at a respective end of the lap belt. The lap belt 2 has a liner 13 on its ventral portion. The liner 13 is a piece of rectangular fabric sewn on the belt 2 at the front thereof. The lining 13 extends vertically from the bottom to the top of the lap belt 2, and extends, horizontally, over a portion of the ventral portion of the belt 13. In use, the lining 13 is substantially centered on the belly of the waist. carrier, with respect to the vertical axis of symmetry of the body. The lining 13 allows a reinforcement of the ventral support, and therefore of the abdominal pressure exerted by the belt 2 on the wearer. The lap belt 2 also has an upper reinforcing strip 12. The upper reinforcing strip 12 is fixed on the outer face of the lap belt 2, along the upper edge thereof, and extends horizontally. The upper reinforcing band 12 does not completely circle the lap belt 2. It extends in dorsal and lateral portions of the lap belt 2, without extending in part ventral. The upper reinforcing strip reinforces the back support exerted by the belt 2.

The lumbar support device 1 comprises a lower compression band 3. This band is intended to apply a circular compression at the pelvis of the wearer. The lower compression band 3 is a flexible textile band, elastic at least in the longitudinal direction, attached to the outer face of the abdominal belt 2, in the lower part thereof, in the vicinity of the lower edge of said belt 2. It is substantially narrower than the lap belt 2. The lower compression band 3 extends horizontally, therefore parallel to the lower edge of the lap belt 2. The lower compression band 3 comprises a central portion 3a, sewn to the dorsal and lateral parts of the abdominal belt 2, and two free ends 3b, 3c. Variations may be made to this design: for example, the lower compression band 3 may be fixed only in the dorsal portion of the lap belt 2, or even only a portion of said back portion.

The free ends 3b, 3c each extend in the extension of the central portion 3a sewn horizontally, and are therefore able to close on the ventral portion of the lap belt 2. The free ends 3b, 3c each comprise a piece of fixing 6, 7, type "Velcro", ie loops and hook, the parts being complementary to each other for fixing the free ends 3b, 3c to one another. The fixing piece 6 is fixed on the outer face of the free end 3b and the fastening piece 7 is fixed on the inner face of the free end 3c, so that the lower compression band 3 can be closed by ventral portion of the lap belt, covering the free end 3c on the free end 3b, the fastener 7 being fixed to the fastener 6. The two fasteners 6, 7 are shown here with a rectangular shape and substantially equal dimensions. Changes can be made to this design. It is in particular provided to allow different fixing positions of a fastener 6, 7 with the other, to thereby allow an adjustment of the useful length of the lower compression band 3, according to the wearer, and / or according to the desired contention. For this, it is for example provided that one of the fasteners 6, 7 is substantially longer than the other. In the example shown in FIG. 1, it is apparent that the total length of the lower compression band 3 is slightly greater than the length of the pelvis of the wearer, in order to be able to close the band 3 by covering its two free ends 3b. , 3c, while exerting a contention thanks to the elastic properties of the band 3. Variations can be made to this design. Thus, it may be provided to directly fix each of the ends 3b, 3c of the band 3 on the abdominal part of the lap belt 2 or on the liner 13, without overlapping said ends 3b, 3c. The total length of the lower compression band 3 is then substantially equal to or less than the wearer's hip circumference. In all cases, the closure of the compression band 3 is partly ventral of the lap belt 2. The lumbar support device 1 also comprises two oblique bands 4, 5 of ventral compression. The oblique bands 4, 5 of ventral compression are strips of flexible fabric, elastic at least in the longitudinal direction. These strips 4, 5 are each substantially less than the width of the abdominal belt. Each of said strips 4, 5 comprises a bottom end 4a, 5a sewn at the bottom of the lap belt 2, at a lateral portion thereof, each on a respective side of the lap belt 2. In the example shown in FIG. 1, the lower end of the oblique bands 4, 5 is not reported directly on the lap belt 2, but is sewn on the central portion 3a of the lower compression band 3, itself sewn on the lap belt 2 The other end 4b, 5b oblique bands 4, 5 is free. The free end 4b, 5b represents the greater part of the length of the oblique bands 4, 5. The oblique bands 4, 5 have a length allowing them to extend obliquely on the ventral part of the abdominal belt 2, a lateral part to the other lateral part or to the dorsal part, of said belt 2, of the bottom of the belt 2 towards the top of the belt 2. Each of the oblique bands 4, 5 has, in the vicinity of the edge of its free end 4b, 5b, a fastener 8, 9, 20 Velcro-type, that is to say, loops or hooks, sewn on the inner face of the oblique band 4, 5. This fastener 8 9 is intended to cooperate with a complementary attachment piece 10, 11, with hooks or loops, stitched at the top of the abdominal belt 2, at the lateral portion thereof. The complementary fastening pieces 10, 11 are stitched onto the upper reinforcing strip 12. The complementary fastening pieces 10, 11 extend over a longer length than the fastening pieces 8, 9, to allow a lateral adjustment of the fastening. of the free end 4b, 5b oblique bands 4, 5, and therefore the abdominal compression exerted by these oblique bands 4, 5. In an embodiment not shown, the complementary fasteners 10, 11 can extend also in the dorsal part of the abdominal belt 2, to allow fixation of the free end 4b, 5b of the oblique bands, at the dorsal portion of the abdominal belt 2.

Referring to Figures 3A to 3E, there can be seen, step by step, the establishment of the device 1 according to the invention, around the abdomen of a wearer. In a first step, not shown, the wearer sets up the abdominal belt 2 around his abdomen. For this, he surrounds his abdomen of the lap belt 2, and closes it on his stomach by anchoring the hooks fixed under the tabs 14 in the tissue of the lap belt 2, at the lateral end of the belt 2 not wearing hooks. The closure is in the ventral position, and preferably non-centered, that is to say on one side of the wearer's belly. This asymmetric positioning of the closure, relative to the user's belly, facilitates the manipulation of the closing hooks or other fastening means by the opposite arm of the wearer. In a second step, shown in Figure 3A, the carrier closes the lower compression band 3 on its belly. For this, he takes the free end 3b, which he has horizontally on his stomach, against the abdominal belt, exerting traction to stretch the band 3. He takes the other free end 3c, also exerting traction, and the place over the free end 3b to secure the two ends 3b, 3c together by cooperation of the complementary fasteners 6, 7. As shown in FIG. 3B, once the lower compression band 3 is closed, the free end 3c extends approximately to the middle of the wearer's belly and covers a portion of the free end 3b. In a third step, represented in FIG. 3C, the wearer sets up a first oblique band 4 of ventral compression on his belly. For this, he grasps the free end 4b of the first oblique band 4 and stretches it upwards and laterally to fix it in the upper part of the lap belt 2, on the opposite side to the lateral attachment point of the end. lower part 4a of the first oblique band 4. Thus, the first oblique band 4 fixed at an oblique orientation, from a point in the lower left to a point at the top right of the wearer's abdomen. Fixing the free end 4b of the oblique band 4 on the lap belt 2 is made by cooperation of the fasteners 8 and 11, with loops and hooks. In a fourth step, represented in FIG. 3D, the wearer sets up the second oblique band 5 of ventral compression on his belly. For this, similarly to the first band 4, he grasps the free end of the second oblique band 5 and stretches it upwards and downwards to fix it in the upper part of the lap belt 2, on the opposite side to the Lateral attachment point of the lower end 5a of the second oblique band S. Thus, the second oblique band 5 fixed at an oblique orientation, from a point at the bottom right to a point at the top left of the abdomen of the wearer. Figure 3E shows the device 1 according to the invention in position on the abdomen of the wearer. The lap belt 2 tightly surrounds the abdomen. The lower compression band 3, closed on the belly of the wearer, exercises a circular compression at the bottom of the abdomen. The first and second oblique bands 4, 5 intersect in the middle of the wearer's belly and exert upward abdominal support on the belly. With reference to FIG. 4, the preferred dimensions and positioning of the device 1 according to the invention can be schematically represented. This diagram shows in particular the positions of the lower compression band 3, oblique bands 4, 5 of ventral compression and the upper band 12 of reinforcement, relative to the skeleton of an adult human being.

The lower compression band 3 extends horizontally around the pelvis, being positioned approximately at the transition between the anterior superior iliac spine and the iliac fossae. The upper edge of the lower compression band 3 is positioned approximately at the anterior superior iliac spines. The lower edge of the lower compression band 3 is positioned so that about two-thirds of the width of the band is located below the interspinous plane. The lower edge of the lap belt 2 is superimposed beneath the lower edge of the lower compression band. The upper edge of the lap belt 2, and thus the upper reinforcing band 12 is positioned approximately at the ribs K7 to K8. The oblique bands 4, 5 ventral compression extend from the lower edge to the upper edge of the abdominal belt 2 and thus extend approximately from the anterosuperior iliac spine to the lateral faces of the ribs K7 to K8. The oblique bands 4, 5 rest, at the bottom, on points of pelvic bone support.

The device 1 according to the invention provides a good support of the spine, thanks to the abdominal belt 2 which exercises a wide compression around the abdomen, and also thanks to the upper reinforcing strip 12, which strengthens the back support at the top of the abdominal belt, and at the lining 13 which reinforces the abdominal support on the wearer's belly. The lower compression band 3, by its circular compression effect and abdominal support, relieves the lumbar region by limiting the constraints in the spine. It contributes, on the one hand, to a decrease in the lever arm exerted by the lower part of the abdomen on the lumbar spine and the lumbosacral region, and on the other hand to favor anterior support at the level of the ring. pelvic and umbilical part. The oblique bands 4, 5 cooperate with the lower compression band to balance and harmonize the tensions. By exerting an oblique force, from bottom to top, and from front to back, the oblique bands 4, 5 distribute the loads weighing on the lumbar region, maintaining the abdomen and the lower ribs. This is to align the sacrum and the middle dorsal vertebrae in the same vertical plane, thus respecting the physiological curvatures between the sacrum and the region of the dorsal vertebrae. The oblique bands 4, 5 and allow a harmonious distribution of loads on the spine. The device according to the invention does not include whales or other rigid or rigidifying systems, and thus makes it possible to maintain good mobility of the lumbar region while preserving it from harmful movements. This device is therefore particularly adapted to the resumption of activity after a crisis of acute lumbago. It thus reduces the risk of reoffending, and the cost and the consequences of a work stoppage for the person and for society.

In addition to its effect on lumbar pain, the device 1 according to the invention improves: - the digestive function, by a pressure balance between the light of the hollow viscera and the abdomen, a support and a relief of the fascial attachments of the full viscera and hollow, improving peristalsis and blood circulation back and door system; - Respiratory function, by maintaining the thoracolumbar zone, insertion point of the diaphragm pillars; - the functions of the small pelvis (uro-genital) by maintaining the previous support; Finally, the device 1 according to the invention brings a psychological and social well-being following the recovery of activity. The restraint maintained by the device is recommended for people with abdominal hypotonia (abdominal ptosis). It is understood that the examples and embodiments that have been described above have been given for information only and not limiting and that modifications can be made without departing from the scope of this invention.25
