Thoraco Lumbar Sacral Orthosis (TLSO)
These are the two main types of orthoses used to stabilize the spinal column in post trauma, surgery, etc. The Patient Donn's these orthosis prior to ambulation and seating to reduce risk of compression of the spinal column as well as protection and pain relief.
All scoliosis orthoses can be either custom made or design from a pre-fabricated orthosis (Boston Brace).
If it is Boston Brace, the orthotist must have a sound knowledge on blue printing of x-rays to have understanding of positioning of correctional pads, and all orthoses must be designed to accommodate the specific curvature and fitted to each individual patient. To have their intended effect, the orthosis must be worn every day for the full number of hours prescribed until the child reaches the end of the program.
