Boston spinal orthosis
The Boston spinal orthosis (or scoliosis brace) corrects the scoliosis by providing relief via asymmetrical cut-outs and by applying pressure via specially fitted foam pads.
This spinal orthosis is made of polyethylene (a thermoformable plastic).
It is advisable to wear a t-shirt with no seams on the sides. This t-shirt will protect the user’s skin from any irritation caused by the brace rubbing against the body. T-shirts and travel bags for spinal orthoses can be purchased online: click here (link to the online PROTEOR shop)
Scoliosis can continue to develop until the individual stops growing. Wearing the brace and attending regular check-ups by physicians working alongside orthotists are essential for a successful treatment.
