The successful expert C. F. Red
lich for Scientific Rupture Appliances
The "Perfection Retention Shields,"
hold the rupture perfectly, no matter
what position the body assumes or
how heavy a weight you lift. They
give instant relief, contract the open
ing in a remarkably short time and
strengthen the weak tissues (the real
cause of rupture) so that they fre
quently recover their previous nat
ural retaining power, needing no fur
ther outside support. Stomach trou
ble, backache, and constipation often
caused by Rupture promptly disap
pear. Truly remarkable results have been
obtained with recent and not yet f un
developed ruptures and many old ones
Surgical Corsets and Abdominal
Supporters for falling organs, obesity,
naval- and stomach-ruptures expertly
made to measure.
