Spinal Bracing (COs, TLSOs and LSOs)
The original orthosis were of metal and leather. The leather could really develop an odor. Fortunately plastics and other manmade materials have made spinal bracing more efficient and more tolerable. Too many types now exist to list here.
We have access to most off-the-shelf braces available. We stock a variety of braces and if necessary can measure and order others. Delivery is usually within a week.
SPINAL BRACING – THE NEXT GENERATION
The basic concepts and designs have changed little but materials have made bracing more tolerable and easier to don. The following are exceptions using new concepts:
The S3 is a snug vest with Velcro at certain points. These allow Velcro-ended elastic resistance straps to be attached in different configurations for different problems, among them winging scapula, and kyphosis. It is only worn a few hours a day to strengthen the muscles. Spinomed is a support which helps decrease kyphosis. It is only worn a few hours a day to strengthen the muscles.
*The choice and engineering of the right brace and its components requires a thorough knowledge of the materials, limitations and capabilities. That is our specialty. We are always happy to provide a free evaluation.*
