Support & Braces

 

Support & Braces, as commonly used  for Orthotics which  is a medical specialty that focuses on the design and application of orthoses "an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system".  An orthosis may be used to:

  • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason
  • Restrict movement in a given direction
  • Assist movement generally
  • Reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
  • Aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast
  • Otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain

Over-the-counter braces are basic and available in multiple sizes. They are generally slid on or strapped on with Velcro, and are held tightly in place.
