Back braces are prescribed for different reasons, such as: soft tissue injuries, postsurgical fusions and even severe spinal fractures. We stock shelf items such as the Medac range and Tribal from Royce Medical elastic pull wraps. You need to book an appointment for these braces so that you can be measured.
For the custom made Moulded Bennett and TLSO braces we either take a plaster cast of your body or we enter your measurements onto our Tracer CAD system. Your brace is then made in our laboratory and supplied on your next appointment.
We do corrective bracing for scoliosis and kyphosis deformities. In these situations we need to cast you with plaster, correct the positive cast and then manufacture the corrective brace. X – Rays need to be taken before and after your appointment to determine the improvement of the curve.
In situations where the curve of the scoliosis is higher than your 7th thoracic vertebrae, we need to give you a Milwaukee brace, which has a super structure that extends to the chin.
