  1. Back brace

    A back brace is a device designed to limit the motion of the spine in cases of fracture or in post-operative fusions. Limiting the motion of the spine enhances the healing process and minimizes the patient's discomfort. Common back braces include: ⁕Rigid braces : These braces are form-fitting plastic molds that restrict motion by as much as 50%; and ⁕Soft braces : Elastic braces that limit forward motion of the spine and assist in setting spinal fusions or supporting the spine during occasions of stress.
