Scrotal Supports

Definition : Abdominal supports designed to provide support, protection, and some degree of movement restriction to the scrotum. These supports usually consist of soft or semi-rigid structures (e.g., dedicated briefs) supporting the scrotum. They are frequently made of fabrics combined with light metal or plastic components. Scrotum supports provide protection and support to the testes during working activities that involve heavy weight lifting and/or the practice of sports in order to prevent formation and/or displacement of hernias into the scrotum. Dedicated scrotum supports (known as trusses) intended for the reduction of hernias are also available.
