The Procare Universal Deluxe Rib Belt is a medical support product designed to provide compression and support to the rib cage. It is typically used for individuals who have experienced rib fractures, strains, or other related injuries. This rib belt offers several features and benefits to help with pain relief and healing.
6" Two-Panel Elastic Belt: The rib belt is constructed with a 6" two-panel elastic belt. This design allows for a secure and comfortable fit around the rib cage area. The elastic material provides gentle compression to the injured area, promoting support and stability.
Flannel Lining: The rib belt is lined with flannel, which enhances comfort when in contact with the skin. The soft and cozy flannel lining prevents any discomfort or irritation during use, making it suitable for prolonged wear.
Choice of Male or Female Styles: Procare offers both male and female styles of the rib belt. This ensures a more tailored fit and comfort, as the male and female anatomies can differ in shape and size. Choosing the appropriate style enhances the effectiveness of the support.

Compression and Support: The primary purpose of the Procare Universal Deluxe Rib Belt is to provide compression and support for rib fractures, strains, and related injuries. The compression helps to reduce pain and promote healing by stabilizing the ribcage and reducing movement in the injured area.
Fractures and Strains: This rib belt is particularly suitable for individuals who have sustained rib fractures or strains. Rib injuries can be quite painful, and wearing a rib belt can alleviate discomfort and support the healing process.
Adjustable Closure: The rib belt features contact closure, which allows for an adjustable fit. The patient can secure the rib belt to the desired level of compression, ensuring a comfortable yet effective level of support.
