Not sure about a product, my first thought was Queen Kong.
Ok, I do not think that would be effective. I had surgery for this condition and, in fact, I am sure this would not work at all.

Paul, looks like you found another ad featuring a giant person!

It wasn't some form of insurance.

I thought it was an early Insurance ad - the Mayhem guy looked almost like the guy getting squeezed. Almost.

My favorite line from the ad - No longer are ruptured men and women doomed to the eternal torture and discomfort of harnesslike trusses with their gouging knobs, steel springs and unsanitary leg straps!

There are at least 5 good rock -band names in there.
The Gouging Knobs. Unsanitary Leg Straps.
Eternal Torture and Discomfort, could have been a Punk band name.
