Model #560 is predominantly cotton so particularly suitable for warmer climates and light. This is the closest look to a normal brief that we supply. The styling is cut-higher than our other designs so the wearer must ascertain the suitability of this garment relative to the position of your inguinal hernia. Suitable for male gender only.
Typically this model is more suitable for smaller hernias and if freedom of movement. It is also suitable if you have a relatively large stomach as your true waist size starts lower down. The airy elasticated fabric is designed to be worn all day and allows good freedom of movement.
The product comes with 2 x (optional) atomically shaped, flat foam pads for added comfort. These can be inserted into pockets within the garment. Suitable for a single or bilateral hernia.
Suitability: Suitable for an Inguinal Hernia that is classified as 'reducible' i.e. it can be pushed back into the body without undue pain. Also suitable for post-operative care where support is necessary across the site. Do not use on injured skin or together with ointments or creams. if in doubt consult your physician for approximate time and way of use. Not recommended if part of your hernia is emerging into the scrotum as internal foam pads need to cover whole hernia area for effective relief. Do not wear this product directly after surgery particularly if you have had a mesh-type hernia repair as pressure on the mesh may cause internal inflammation. Post-operation the hernia brief can be worn as a general gentle support without the foam pad(s) but only after clearance from your surgeon regarding recovery rates.
Bought these briefs since appeared to be similar to regular underwear. After received, I’m not disappointed. They are discreet under my jeans and can walk around without concern of being noticed with them plus the support is excellent for my hernias.
Light breathable material perfect for summer! The support not as much as used to but getting used to it.
I found the product of very good quality and it's being very effective in my case. Like other users suggested I went for the smaller size and although the first time I felt I should have ordered my size now I got used to. It allows me to conduct all my activities as before and in my case I see a reduction of the inflammed area. It-s ergonomic and the foam supports cover the right area. I'm planning to try the long briefs as they may feel more comfortable. I would recommend this product to anyone with a reducible inguinal hernia.
