PRLog - Jan. 4, 2012 - COVINGTON, La. -- Egan Medical Supply has unveiled a new line of maternity belts and other more sophisticated products designed to provide women with comfortable yet firm support to the abdomen, back, shoulders and torso during pregnancy.
The maternity support products were recently made available for purchase online through the company's web-based storefront in a move that expands the firm's target clientele beyond seniors and the disabled.
Included in the recently unveiled line of maternity wear products is arguably the most popular and effective pregnancy support available on the market today, the world-famous, patented Prenatal Cradle (http://www.eganmedical.com/
According to the Egan Medical website, the Prenatal Cradle: "helps to ease backaches, provide a lift for tired tummy (abdominal) muscles, reduces swelling of the feet and ankles, comforts the hips and pelvic bones, and provides support during exercise and/or other physical activities."
In addition to the world-famous Prenatal Cradle, Egan has also made available a high-end maternity belt from another highly-reputable manufacturer. The Soft Form Maternity Belt is among the higher-end maternity belts available, and is made by FLA Orthopedics. Over the years, FLA (a BSN Jobst company) has developed a reputation for making high-quality, comfortable orthopedic supports and braces. The FLA-made items that are designed to be worn underneath the user's clothing (such as the Soft Form Maternity Belt) are typically discreet enough to go unnoticed or at the very least be barely noticeable when worn properly. The lone drawback of FLA-branded products is that they are usually priced slightly higher than similar products from competing manufacturers, although the customer feedback received by Egan Medical indicates the trade-off of a higher price for a more comfortable brace is well worth the investment more often than not.
The Maternity Supports category at Egan Medical is not exclusively for those who can afford high-end products like the two mentioned above. Egan is also offering a cost-effective variation of the Prenatal Cradle known as the Mini Cradle (http://www.eganmedical.com/
While the Mini Cradle is a maternity belt and not a full-featured support like the original Cradle, it does provide effective relief to those suffering from pendulous abdomens. The Mini Cradle also helps provide relief from back pain, abdominal straining, painful hip separation, pubic symphysis, lordosis and sciatica. Despite helping relieve pain associated with all of the aforementioned conditions, at under $20, the Mini Cradle is affordable for just about anyone regardless of budget.
The introduction of maternity supports and belts to the Egan Medical online storefront is only the beginning of what the company foresees as an ongoing effort to expand its product offerings beyond those intended for use exclusively by and for the elderly and/or disabled.
