British made spring truss hernia support traditionally made to a very high standard. Lakeland Orthotics are the only UK manufacturer of spring trusses! Our spring trusses are made to the fitter’s instruction for the ultimate fit and patient compliance. The spring is made from British steel which is shaped and tempered to create a memory spring which conforms to the body. This shaping process and slight malleability property of the steel spring helps provide an accurate and comfortable fit to the patient and allows for slight adjustments of fit. A pad or pads are made and fitted to the spring according to the patient’s requirements. The 3-dimensional pads are shaped to create a direct pressure to the hernia site. These are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to create the best coverage required. Our spring trusses are available in single or double and as an inguinal, scrotal or femoral hernia support. They are designed to be worn against the skin and conform to BS standards. Any special instruction should be provided when ordering, please contact us for more information.

Since there are various types of hernias and a variety of trusses designed to support them, professional medical advice should always be sought before wearing a truss. We cannot provide fitting instructions as these should be provided by a professional before use.
It is most important that the following general points are observed:
The truss should be removed at night unless you have a cough, although elastic band trusses are sometimes used to control ruptures during sleep.
If you feel the truss is uncomfortable or the truss fails to retain the rupture then please get in touch with your truss fitter, who will be able to advise you and may well be able to make the necessary adjustments immediately. If this is not possible ask your doctor for advice.
Always seek your doctor’s advice if you have any pain in the rupture.
Cleaning: Do not immerse in water or put in the washing machine. The truss may be lightly sponged and left to dry overnight. Dust down with talcum powder to retain freshness.
