What's the Difference Between the Unilateral and Bilateral Versions?
While the unilateral model of the Ortel Hernia Truss has been designed for those suffering from a single hernia, the bilateral model has been created for those with a double hernia. A double hernia is where you're suffering from the condition on both sides of your body, whereas a single hernia is where the condition is only present on one side.
While the unilateral version of the Hernia Truss only has one groin strap that can be placed on the left or right side, the bilateral version has two straps. In both models, the straps can be adjusted to ensure you remain comfortable throughout use.
