Meditex Adjustable Infant & Child Umbilical Navel Hernia Truss Belt Support
It's estimated that as many as 20% of newborns may have umbilical hernias. An umbilical hernia refers to a condition found most commonly in newborns, though it can also occur in adults. With this particular type of hernia, part of the intestine, usually right near the belly button, is able to extrude out past the stomach muscles. In newborns and young children, you may notice a rounded bump poking out from the stomach, especially when babies use their stomach muscles for stretching, crying or having a bowel movement. This pediatric umbilical truss is designed to provide relief to infants suffering from an umbilical hernia. A soft foam pad adds cushion and provides a non-elastic zone that helps to direct compression on the hernia. Velcro fastener for easy on and off.
