Custom Hip Orthosis 


 

Bivalve LSOThe custom fabricated lumbosacral (LSO) orthosis is a circumferencial brace design controlling the lumbosacral spinal area.  Specific measurements and normally a cast is taken of the patient and used as a mold in fabricating the brace.

 

Materials usually used to fabricate the brace can be polyethylene, polypropylene, copolymer or surlyn to name a few.  The choice would be up to your orthotist and physician, according to your specific requirements and the nature of the disability.  If necessary, a foam liner can be incorporated.

 

The bivalve LSO (anterior and posterior sections) is a very versatile orthosis and recommended for numerous spinal conditions.  The design affords excellent adjustability with an intimate and comfortable fit.
