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.
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.
