The SpineBoard orthosis consist of a padded plastic splint that has been reinforced with two aluminum stays and inserted into a textile lumbar support bandage. Additional shoulder straps pull the patient’s body backwards, against the splint.

Wearing the SpineBoard activates the back muscles. The upper part of the body straightens itself, counteracting the hunched back that is typical to osteoporosis. This splint should be individually adjusted by an orthotist when worn the first time. The BraceID has been designed to enable the patient to breathe normally and to move the arms and shoulders without restriction. The device has been adapted specifically for senior citizens with limited mobility of the limbs as a target group.

Features and benefits

  • The plastic splint has a contoured S-shape showing the traditional lumbar lordosis and thoracic kyphosis.
  • A vertical open gutter in the centre should prevent pressure on the bony prominences of the spinous processes.
  • 2 thin, shaped aluminium bars at each side of the opening provide support to the plastic splint. Extra foam padding strips are attached inside the splint for comfort.
  • The splint is wrapped in a textile jacket to give it a discrete appearance for the patient.
  • The back support also contains extra features to help elderly with dexterity problems.
    • The waist bandage has wider finger pockets to make the application easier.
    • Extra finger loops have been applied at the end of the side pulls to grasp these more comfortably at the side of the body.
  • Each shoulder strap has a metal buckle with a rolling system to facilitate the application for all type of patients. Moreover, the removable Y-tab closure system, at the end of each strap, has been made thicker so that the straps can’t slide through these rings by accident.
  • The side pull straps are positioned in a V-shape at the back side of the support to maintain the spinal splint as close as possible to the body.
