Please allow 3 hours for the fitting appointment. During this appointment we will assess the trimlines and make any modifications necessary to optimize both the fit and function of the brace.
During this appointment, we will review the wearing schedule, how to put on and take off the brace, how to perform skin checks, and answer any questions you may have. Photos will be taken in order for our team to review.
After we fit and dispense the brace to the patient, it is recommended to measure the height of the child without shoes against a wall or edge of a door just by making a mark. Please do this both standing and sitting in a chair every 2-3 months. This helps to accurately assess the change in height and how much of the height change occurred in the spine. The exact height is not as important as the change in height the period of time in which it occurred.
