Most hospital designed and fitted braces are called TLSOs. TLSO stands for Thoraco-Lumbar-Sacral-Orthosis and is the generic descriptive name for the common thermoplastic hard braces used in the treatment of scoliosis. There are many of variations of TLSO braces available.
Custom designed rigid braces
After years of research into the effect of Mirror Image rehabilitation procedures on scoliosis, 3D designed and manufactured braces have been developed in certain parts of the world. This approach takes into consideration the postural alignment of the patient and the scoliosis deformity in 3 dimensions. Based on this 3D assessment computer assisted design and manufacture are used to produce a brace that attempts to correct the patients postural and spinal deformity in all 3 planes.
Dynamic bracing is a treatment option that utilises a soft, dynamic brace as part of an overall treatment approach. This approach is based on the fact that when a scoliosis develops it does so in a particular pattern and this pattern has a 3 dimensional effect on the body shape and posture. By reversing the abnormal posture and body shape into their opposite position the body and posture correct the abnormal alignment of the spine. For each type of scoliosis a speciﬁc corrective movement of the body shape and posture is used. This corrective movement is achieved by using the dynamic brace.
All age groups are suitable for bracing.
