Garchois spinal orthosis
The Garchois spinal orthosis (or scoliosis brace) is used to reduce and stabilize neurological scoliosis (i.e. non-idiopathic scoliosis) and to preserve respiratory function. This spinal orthosis is even suitable for very young children.
Posterior hinge-type joints make it easier to put on and take off the orthosis. An extension headrest or minerva can be added as an option.
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
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.
