The SpineBoard orthosis consists of a padded plastic splint 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® SpineBoard has been designed to enable the patient to breathe normally and to move 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’s contoured S-shape corresponds
    to the normal lumbar lordosis and thoracic kyphosis.

    • A vertical groove in the centre alleviates pressure
      on the bony protrusions of the processus spinosus.
    • Two thin, shaped aluminium bars at each side of this groove provide support to the plastic splint. The splint has been fitted with extra-soft padding strips inside for additional comfort.
    • The splint is covered in fabric so that it can be worn discretely.
  • Each shoulder strap has a metal buckle with a roller system to make application easier for patients in all categories. Moreover, the ends of each strap with the removable Y-tab closure system taper outwards to prevent them from accidentally sliding through the rings.
  • The back support has also extra features to help elderly persons with limited dexterity.
    • The back bandage has wide finger pockets to fascilitate application.
    • Extra finger loops have been attached at each end of the side pull straps to enable patients to grasp them more easily at the side of the body.
  • These elastic side pull straps are applied in a V-shape at the back of the support bandage to keep the spinal splint as close to the body as possible.
  • Less SKU’s results in a reduced stock level. Combine splint and waist bandage according the patient’s body size and shape:
    • 4 lengths for Spinal Splints (height: 40-46-51-56 cm)
