QualiBra Advanced - Postoperative sternal wound protection in synergy with lateral sternum support

November 06, 2013

We are extremely pleased to introduce the QualiBra Advanced.

Now fuller-sized women can comfortably get continuous lateral support on the sternum and still enjoy the QualiBra breast support for better postoperative wound care.

With a unique smaller version of the QualiBreath sternum support we have integrated it with the QualiBra and maintained all the distinctive features and benefits of both products.

QualiBra Advanced is not only a combination of two of our products. It provides an additional important feature for women who suffer from arthritis in their hands.

Arthritis may make it difficult to grasp around items. For this reason we have created pockets in the sternum support band of the QualiBra Advanced. The pockets are placed on each side of the sternum and allows the patient to place her thumbs or her fingers inside without the need to bend her joints. She will be able to effectively manage additional pain such as when she needs to cough, sneeze or perform respiratory exercises, simply by bringing the hands towards each other without it requires a great deal of strength.


 Bringing the two pockets together reinforces the circumferential support around the chest.

The QualiBra Advanced is as easy to position as our regular QualiBra, since the sternum support band is attached to the under-bust band of the QualiBra at the back side. Just one additional step which is to attach the Velcro closure at the front left side of the patient.

QualiBra Advanced may provide fuller-sized women with essential prevention of postoperative complications:

  • Less wound complications since heat and moisture generation and pull on the sternum sutures are prevented
  • Continuous lateral support on the sternum to help prevent complications such as deep sternal wound infections and dehiscence.
  • More aesthetic wound healing since the wound is not being squeezed and deformed
  • Wound inspection and care while breast support and the woman’s dignity is maintained.
  • Comfort and feeling of security 

What do you think of this new preventive care product ?

After major surgery, the last thing anyone wants to deal with during their recovery is excessive pain. Of course, some post-op pain is usually inevitable, which is why pain management can have a big effect on the recovery experience of a patient. Not only does this make the recovery period more comfortable, studies have shown that successful post-op pain management can prevent long-term complications and shorten the recovery time.

There are many ways to control pain after surgery. Doctors may prescribe a number of different courses of action, including pain medication. Some of the most commonly prescribed pain medications are opioids.

Can external wound supports further enhance the ERAS perioperative activity programs?

Early mobilization of the post surgical patient is an integral part of the ERAS recommendations. However, it seems that it is one thing to instruct patients to mobilize, and another to make sure the patients actually comply with such instructions.
External wound supports have not yet been considered as standard adjunctive therapy in ERAS protocols. Yet, they could very well be an important complementary treatment that easily fits into the fast track regimes. In addition, they could help patients to be more compliant with the activity protocols in the hospital and at home.
