SCOLIOSIS & SPINE BRACING

Zortex Orthotics

Scoliosis & Spine Bracing

Scoliosis is a 3 dimensional deformity of the spine with a curve greater than 10 degrees. It affects between 1% and 3% of the population. Many conditions affecting the nerves and muscles (neuromuscular system) can cause scoliosis.

Scoliosis Bracing

A significant number of braces produced and provided by Zortex Orthotics are involved with the management of scoliosis and kyphosis. Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine and kyphosis an excessive convex curvature of the spine in the thoracic region often referred to as roundback.

The two designs preferred by Zortex for the management of spine curvatures are The Boston Brace and The SpineCor Brace.

The Boston Brace


The Boston Brace System is a highly researched system with many published articles to it’s name that has been continually evolving for more than 50 years.

The Boston 3D Brace

The Boston 3D Brace is the next innovation in the non operative treatment of idiopathic scoliosis. Using CAD /CAM technologies, this enhanced brace design comes from a unique select-shift / push combination fabricated into each brace. At the forefront of this technology is Zortex Orthotics being well represented in the first of the extensive training programs being offered at Boston OandP

The SpineCor System


In 2008 Zortex Orthotics introduced to Australia The Spinecor System which claims to be the first truly dynamic scoliosis brace. In managing the spine curvature a corrective movement is performed specific to the curve classification. Moderate tension from elastic bands allows the repetition and amplification of the corrective movement throughout everyday activities.

Comfort Plus Brace


The latest evolution of the SpineCor brace is the Comfort Plus Brace claiming to be the ultimate Flexible Scoliosis Treatment of choice for children and adults. Utilising patented SpineCor Corrective Movement Principles this intimately fitted body contoured brace provides both greater comfort and control. A recent trip to York England 2017 and meetings with Orthotist and SpineCor Trainer Matthew Nolan ensured this innovation to be available in Australia.
