This brace was designed with the idea that compliance would increase if the brace were worn only at night. It is asymmetrical. The brace fights against the body’s curve by over-correcting. It grips the hips much like the Boston, and rises to approximately the same height, but pushes the patient’s body to the side. It is used in single, thoracolumbar curves in patients 12–14 years of age (before structural maturity) who have flexible curves in the range of 25–35 Cobb degrees. www.shop-orthopedics.com/Back_Braces_s/85.htm
