Suffering won't help patients get better. Managing their pain will. HEART HUGGER™ can help. Protect the integrity of your sternal closure. Make sure your patients use HEART HUGGER™.
After Cardiac or Thoracic surgery, pain is a fact of life, and there's no mystery about what causes it - stress on the surgical wound. When the handles are squeezed together, Heart Hugger™ Sternum Support Harness circles the rib cage with uniform pressure, providing sternotomy support. Because it is patient operated, it gives patients full-time control over the pain that goes along with every uncomfortable movement and gives them the confidence and independence to do the respiratory therapy and ambulatory exercises necessary for recovery. HEART HUGGER™ is the original sternal support device. It provides better and more consistent support than any therapeutic or surgical heart pillow. It is Medicare approved and is Classified by the U.S. FDA as a Therapeutic Medical Binder.

Heart Hugger™ and Surgi-Support Vest™ (a Surgical Bra) for Women provide patients with full-time wound stability, sternal support and pain control, in the hospital and at home. That’s why they are part of many Cardiac and Thoracic surgery programs worldwide. They help keep patients on the clinical pathway to recovery.
