Boston Scoliosis Night Brace
Our experience and knowledge have taught us that not all patients will be suitable for the Original Boston Scoliosis Brace. For some patient's with smaller magnitude curves and perhaps a dramatic physical or physchological reaction to wearing a full time brace, there is a need to have an alternative orthosis to offer.For this reasaon The Boston Scoliosis Night Brace was developed. It is designed to be worn only at night (during sleep). It is molded to conform to the patient's body while they are bent towards the convexity of the curve, thus 'over-correcting' the curve during the eight hours it is worn. The objective of the Night Brace is to biomechanically correct the Scoliosis by stabilizing, lateral shift and unbending forces.
This product is intended for the treatment of Idiopathic Scolisosis with the following broad criteria: Smaller curve magnitude: Approximately 25-35 Cobb angle; Skeletally immature (riser 0-3); Curve Apex up to approximately T9 maximum; Patients who show a strong aversion to 'full-time' brace wear, to the extent that the possibility to achieve a successful outcome is deemed low.
Curve magnitude >35°.
Patient measurements should be accurately taken and recorded on our Night Brace Measurement form together with a patient x-rays in order to complete the brace design and manufacture. The ordering form can be found in our download centre. The brace can be supplied fully finished (to first fitting stage).
The Night Brace has additional key features which will increase patient comfort and adjustability: Additional layers of inner foam liner; Removable internal lining that can easily be removed for cleaning and adjustment; Internal foam liner overhangs the external plastic shell to eliminate edge pressure normally found in other braces; Hypo-allergenic; A wide range of colour / patterns are available - see "download center" on our website for available options. Specially manufactured 'Boston T's' (vests) are available for wearing under Night Brace for patient's comfort. See the Boston Brace Accessories section on our website for more details.
