QualiBreath can help your recovery after open heart surgery or other interventions in the chest.
Decrease pain, decrease the risk of complications, minimise clicking and popping of your sternum bone and breathe easier with the help of QualiBreath.
It is a patented chest harness with integrated handles for increased support that was designed by a nurse. Created specifically to help you recover better, faster and with less complications after open heart surgery.
QualiBreath supports your sore respiratory muscles, your chest and your rib cage with it’s thorax surrounding design that stabilises the sternum from the sides.
The vest features special handles that allow you to increase the support when you need it most. Coughing, deep breathing and early return to normal activity can be very painful after your surgery yet are very important for a quick and complication free recovery. Use the handles to get extra support also when sneezing or straining.
Using a support such as QualiBreath has been scientifically proven to reduce complications and pain after open heart surgery via a sternotomy.
QualiBreath is the only dual function chest support binder (constant support plus integrated handles) and it is most likely the most comfortable external chest brace available.
QualiBreath splints your chest 24/7 and you won’t need to be hugging a pillow. When feeling pain, straining or about to cough or sneeze, simply grab the integrated handles, which are always ready in the right position, to increase the support around your rib cage.
Female patients with breast size below cup D can also use QualiBreath. For additional comfort and privacy, the breast cover accessory can be added simply by attaching its upper corner velcro pieces to the inside of QualiBreath and by closing the elastic band around the chest. The breast cover is not a bra but will cover any breast tissue appearing below the QualiBreath.For breast cups D and larger we recommend using the specifically designed QualiBra Advanced - breast and sternum support.
