GraviBelt®

GraviBelt® Pregnancy Belt

to reduce pregnancy-related complaints such as back, pelvic and sciatic pain

 

Background: Pregnancy discomfort

To ensure that the pelvis is flexible enough for birth, the body releases the hormone progesterone. This contributes to a loosening of the ligaments, the tissue and the muscles. However, this also weakens the strength of joints and stability of muscles. The growing baby, amniotic fluid, placenta and growing breast add extra weight, which puts additional strain on the muscles. The extra weight gathers in the abdominal region which often results in a hollow back with pregnant women. These factors – the loosening of the tissue of the pelvic ring, the additional weight and the unnatural position – often result in tensions and discomfort as of the 20th week of pregnancy, e.g. in back pain, pelvic pain and sciatic pain. The sensation of pain hinders the natural motion sequence and can affect the well-being of pregnant women.
 

What is GraviBelt®?

The GraviBelt® pregnancy belt (also known as pregnancy bandage) serves to ease pregnancy-related problems. The wide and elastic belt of the GraviBelt® pregnancy bandage supports the back and lumbar spine. An upright position and the mobility are promoted. The narrower part of the pregnancy belt in the abdominal area can be fastened with an adjustable velcro fastener. Thus, you can adapt the flexible pregnancy belt to the abdominal girth throughout your whole pregnancy. The ties attached to the back and the side of the belt allow an individual width adjustment. Moreover, an adjustment regarding personal needs for comfort and stability is possible. The plastic rods that are sewed into the back region stabilise an upright position.

Nasal breathing problems during pregnancy

Do you often suffer from a blocked nose at night? About ¼ of all pregnant women suffers from pregnancy rhinitis[1] – probably hormonal swelling of the nasal mucous membranes. Many women therefore have to deal with a congested nose during pregnancy. Our Airmax® nasal dilator is a gentle solution without the use of medication. We also offer other anti snore devices that help prevent snoring and nocturnal breathing stops.
