Spring Trusses are best for moderate to maximum support.  A spring truss is a specific type of truss for hernia relief. The function of a truss is to maintain a hernia in complete reduction.  A truss accomplishes this by exerting an inward pressure at the point of the hernia which is equal to the downward, outward pressure of the herniated organ itself. There are two basic types of trusses, elastic and spring, and each works on a different mechanical principle. A spring trusses differ from the elastic trusses in that the positive action used to hold the hernia is derived from the tension of  a steel spring.  The spring originates near the site of the hernia and passes over the hips to end at a midway between the spine and the side of the body opposite the hernia. Spring Trusses can be adjusted for a truly custom fit.  The flexible belt can be shaped and adjusted when put on for the first time.  The holding pressure can be increased or decreased by regulating the tension of the spring. Since the spring is shaped to contour the body and since the tension has to be maintained on the spring to be effective, the truss, when off the body, will coil inward on itself, giving it a different shape than when it is being worn.
