What is a 3-D Brace?
A scoliosis curve has three directions, correction must therefore take place in three directions. The 3D brace does this, one brace for a correction in three directions.
The 3D brace is based on years of research into the development of scoliosis, the earliest forms of this condition, and the consequences for treatment.
Why the Providence?
We strive for optimal treatment with maximum results with the least possible impact on the patient's life. However, wearing a brace does have an impact. Wearing the brace only at night minimizes this without compromising the effect. The Providence is, among other things, the #1 brace in Scandinavia with good scientific results.
The Providence Brace is a 3D night brace, so you retain the freedom to move freely during the day. Due to the unique and effective biomechanical design, this brace is just as effective as other day-night braces. The brace is custom made for you.
