WHAT IS PECTUS CARINATUM (PIGEON CHEST)?
Pectus carinatum is major deformity in the chest area. It describes a protrusion of the chest over the sternum, often described as giving the person a bird-like appearance. It may occur as a solitary abnormality or in association with other genetic disorders or syndromes. The infected chest looks like pigeon that’s why we called this deformity “pigeon chest”. It’s most commonly noticed in males around their 11th birthday.
Lungs and hearts develop in people with pigeon chest normally, but the deformity may prevent these from functioning optimally. Because of limited motion and weakness of back muscles and muscles of respiration, these young people may have a decrease in stamina. What’s more, the different shape of the chest can damage their self-image and self-confidence, possibly disrupting connections with others.
The most efficient way of treatment this condition is our pigeon chest brace CARINATUM, connected with physical therapy.
HOW DOES CARINATUM WORK?
CARINATUM brace is the best solution for pigeon chest treatment.
The frame is made of lightweight high quality aluminum 6061 T6, which is used in aeronautics guarantees the best stabilization in the market. Under the frame there is special medical foam providing comfort for bony prominences. Our pectus carinatum brace should be applied during adolescence, prior to skeletal maturity, when bones are able to shape. Because of innovative system CALIPER BUCKLE, our CARINATUM brace provides an anterior and posterior compression (AP), which over time, remodels the bones and cartilages and replaces them to physiological position.
Using systematically, the brace corrects the chest deformation and improves breathing and blood flow.
CARINATUM is designed to be worn for 24 hours for 7days per week through the treatment.
Because of innovative construction, our pigeon brace CARINATUM is invisible under the clothes and patient feel very comfortable and confidence in connections with others.
