Making a spinal brace video
We have produced a short film that takes you through the process of making a spinal brace for a patient with scoliosis. With exclusive access to the on-site orthotics workshop at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, you can see the whole process - from when the patient is first cast, through the manufacture and shaping and on to the final fitting.
The Orthotics Department at RNOH is supported by a team of experienced orthotists and many of the orthoses are manufactured on site in the workshops. The RNOH specialise in assessing and managing complex problems and work with other members of the multi-disciplinary team, especially orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists.
