Heart Hugger™ is a simple, on demand, patient operated harness that provides patients with full time wound stability, sternal support, pain management and fewer wound complications. When the handles are squeezed together, Heart Hugger™ circles the rib cage with uniform pressure and support. It is applied immediately after extubation and continues to be work at home after discharge.
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, Because it is patient operated, Heart Hugger™ 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 a part of many Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery programs worldwide. It keeps patients on the clinical pathway to recovery. It provides better and more consistent support than any therapeutic or surgical heart pillow. It is Medicare approved and is Classified by the FDA as a Therapeutic Medical Binder. BUY HERE
