STUDY DESIGN A mechanical evaluation of brace strap tensions to document their variability in different patient positions and to assess their biomechanical effectiveness. OBJECTIVES To measure the strap tensions at which adolescents with scoliosis are wearing their braces and to determine the variations in strap tension in different patient positions. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The biomechanical action of thoracolumbosacral orthoses in still not well understood, and there is no standardized… CONTINUE READING
