Human skin is the best Mother’s Nature gift. Is has a range of properties. The skin protects our body against the microorganisms, bacteria and harmful UV-rays. Many skin’s receptors receive tactile stimuli. The skin is not afraid of frost or heat wave because it adapts to each weather conditions. Its high resistance protects internal tissues and organs. The skin is soft, flexible and resistant to stretching. It works exactly as our innovative OT-16 chest belt.
Chest support OT-16 is inspired by nature. We wanted to create unique brace which will reflect a human’s skin properties.
The thickness of the chest belt is similar to skin. This solution provides natural, physiological cooperation between brace and body. Softness and flexibility of the fabric maintains gentle but effective compression.
The OT-16 chest belt is made of innovative ProFit™ fabric.
ProFit™ is a double-layer fabric that is elastic in all directions and fits to limb precisely. The external side is made of spandex providing excellent compression and absorbs muscle shocks in physical activity. The internal side consists of microfibre, cotton and elastane what makes it skin-friendly, breathable and provides velvet softness. ProFit™ is friendly and neutral for the skin and has Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate.
OT-16 chest belt, similar to human’s skin, maintains the optimal joint’s temperature and reduces aching chest and pain.

The side part of the orthosis is equipped with spiral bonings. They take over some of the external forces, evenly distributing the compression of the brace, relieving the muscles and preventing the orthosis from curling, which improves the comfort of use. The orthosis has a front closure with a circumference adjustment function, thanks to which the product fits more precisely to each body shape. In addition, the orthosis has adjustable suspenders that position the product on the body, preventing from slipping and twisting.
