SALO Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis TLSO a unique prefabricated for postoperative, post-traumatic, or chronic spinal pathology. The Duel TLSO provides full-circumferential rigid support from the scapular thoracic region (T2/T3) of the spine down to the Sacro coccygeal junction (S1). The TLSO design creates a 3-point force system, consisting of a posteriorly directed force from the sternal and pubic pads, and an interiorly directed force from the thoracolumbar pad. The pressure created restricts forward flexion and encourages a hyperextension posture.

Scoliosis is a common medical condition in which a person's spinal axis has a three-dimensional deviation.
Although it is a complex three-dimensional condition, on an X-ray, viewed from the rear, the spine of an individual with scoliosis can resemble an "S" or a "C", rather than a straight line.
Scoliosis is typically classified as either congenital (caused by vertebral anomalies present at birth), idiopathic (cause unknown, sub-classified as infantile, juvenile, adolescent, or adult, according to when onset occurred), or secondary to a primary condition.
Secondary scoliosis can be the result of a neuromuscular condition (e.g., spina bifida, cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy, or physical trauma) or syndromes such as Chiari malformation.
Recent longitudinal studies reveal that the most common form of the condition, late-onset idiopathic scoliosis, causes little physical impairment other than back pain and cosmetic concerns, even when untreated, with mortality rates similar to the general population.
The rarer forms of scoliosis pose risks of complications such as heart and lung problems.
Scoliosis is a lifelong condition; management of the condition includes treatments such as bracing, physical therapy and surgery.

VISSCO Ash Brace Hyper Extension Brace PC0810 are used to treat fractures and back pain that occur where the thoracic spine (upper back) meets the lumbar spine(low back). It is designed to limit movement in these two regions of the spine. Hyperextension braces prevent you from bending forward too much. In turn, this prevents you from potentially interfering with the healing of your spinal compression fracture and sensitive spinal structures. It maintains the position of Thoracic as well as the Lumbar spine in hyperextension position.
OPPO Sacro Lumbar Support Elastic Code 2163 relieves back pain and improves posture.and helps alleviate muscle pain by reducing stress on the lower spine. The spine has three main sections, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar. There are seven cervical vertebrae (C1-C7), twelve thoracic (T1-T12), and five lumbar (L1-L5). In addition, there are two fused vertebrae, the sacrum and the coccyx. The twelve thoracic and five lumbar vertebrae make up the thoracolumbar spine.
