TLSO, scoliosis correction orthosis, breathing supports correction, custom made


Semi-elastic or rigid corset made from textile, leather or plastic with dorsal locking to control scoliosis. It is based on a pelvic corset with uprights or integrated thoracic support.
Three point principles push the pelvis back from a forward tilt. Also are the curves corrected in three dimensions in every plane of the body. On the opposite site of the pads are big windows to enable the patient to support the correction in an active way. The fitting allows breathing. The breathing creates an active support.

Different versions exists:
* a leather corset built over a reinforced frame with metal or plastic uprights
* an semi-rigid cloth corset, reinforced with two metallic or plastic uprights (St. Etienne corset).

Custom made on a model of the patient.
