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.
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.
