Made of flexible plastic, it mirrors the spine in a 3D fashion and ensures maximum comfort for the wearer. It is intentionally created to accommodate growth of the wearer, in contrast to the commonly-used cylinder-shaped Boston Brace is rather restrictive in nature.
Align Brace is also fully concealable, ensuring that it is not disruptive to your daily activities or professional duties. The exact duration of the wear-time will be determined by your doctor, so do consult with them on the appropriate treatment plan as well!
The Align Brace can be worn almost anywhere and any time of the day. Below are some of the examples:
- Relaxing at home – safe to sit in chair or going about household chores
- Out in public – easy to wear while walking or standing
- Before/after a manual treatment
- Before/after a physical activity or training
