Spinal orthoses are often prescribed for conditions such as cerebral palsy, osteoporosis, scoliotic deformities, spinal injuries and muscular dystrophy and also may be recommended after spinal surgery.
The TLSO is a Thoracic, Lumbar, Sacral Orthosis and the LSO is a shorter orthosis, not covering the thoracic area of the spine. A spinal orthotic (brace) is referred to as a Body Jacket when it is made of a rigid plastic shell that encircles the trunk with overlapping edges and stabilizing closures and provides a high degree of immobility.
At Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics, we will custom fit these spinal orthothoses to your own shape, needs and comfort.
These orthoses are by Boston Brace – they are available in TLSO or LSO and with openings on the front, back or bivalve.
We also provide spinal orthoses manufactured by Spinal Technology. Some of them have a Flex Foam™ patented design which combines the rigidity of a traditional orthosis with the comfort level of a soft body jacket and a removable external jacket for ease of adjustment. Spinal Technology is the exclusive manufacturer of the Providence Nocturnal Scoliosis Orthosis.
