side bending brace
Posted By: Clinical Orthotic Consultants on October 18, 2012
Was just sent a patient, 65 year old female, 4"6", maybe 80 lbs, Angelman
Syndrome. She has a constant lean to the left that the Physician feels is
causing her to stumble and fall. There is no scoliosis. He wants me to
prevent this left side lean with an orthosis. I could do custom, but would
like to try something off-the-shelf first to see if it has any effect on
her. Anyone come across something like this? Am thinking a three point
pressure system, something like a Jewett for prevention of forward bend, but
designed to prevent lateral lean?
Any thoughts appreciated.
