Thoraco Lumbar Sacral Orthosis (TLSO) provide protection, pain relief, and support by stabilising the spinal column caused by neuro-muscular, musculoskeletal, post-traumatic, or surgical presentations. TLSO's can be custom-made, customised from a pre-fabricated (Boston Brace) or commercially avaliable off-the-shelf products.
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.
