It seems to be the week for devices!
I wonder what the heck this looks/sounds like...
@Sasha I have no idea what it looks like. I hope it isn't like what my imagination is trying to tell me...
The authors presented an poster on this in 2013.

I have some doubts about how "cute and comfortable" this would be. I do have low tech abdominal binders that rely on hooks and eyes and zippers. Those are relatively cheap and widely available in ordinary department stores.
Here's my guess...
Does this have better efficacy than wearing a corset?
I think it depends on the corset. They said it had 40 mm Hg compression and this is probably the key.
Sounds like a torture device to me!
I don't know the compression level of the one I have as it is in the "corset category" and not specifically intended for the type of splanchnic compression we are talking about. But, it is not uncomfortable, though tight. The difficulty is more getting in and out of it and that is just an annoyance.
