Custom Braces for Rehabilitation


What is Custom Braces for Rehabilitation?

Custom Braces are external devices that are applied to align and promote the function of the musculoskeletal system. They are made from materials like thermoplastics, carbon fibers, elastic, fabric, or a combination of these. Specific braces are prescribed depending on the need of the patient and the purpose of rehabilitation.

Do we have to wear the brace at all times?

Braces are usually worn while you are performing activities, and exercises or when you feel excessive pain. They are removed while sleeping.

Which conditions usually need such braces?

There is a wide range of anomalies where custom braces can be useful. Some of these conditions are as follows: osteoarthritis of the knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow; any trauma to these joints, post surgically, muscle strain, sprains or any deformity, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. Braces can also be useful to athletes or elite players in order to prevent injuries. Braces have a predominant use in correcting faulty biomechanics.

Maintaining joints in alignment

Preventing further deformity or progression of an injury

Reducing arthritic pain
