SpineCor[edit] SPINECOR: A non-rigid brace for the treatment of Idiopathic Scoliosis: Initial Post-Treatment Results. Eurospine 2003 12: 141-1 Christine Coillard, M.D., Michel A Leroux, Ph.D., Karl F, Zabjek, MSc., Charles Hilaire Rivard, M.D.

I've added spinecor brace information on the brace section. Above is a link to peer reviewed study on the brace. Below is another published study on it.

Survival analysis of a group of 365 idiopathic scoliosis patients treated with the Dynamic SpineCor Brace Résonances Eurospéenes Du Rachis. 14(43):p. 1782-1786. French. Vachon V, Coillard C, Zabjek KF, Rhalmi S, Rivard CH

Lower case name[edit]

This should be moved to back brace (lower case). 17:09, 25 November 2005 (UTC)


shouldn't references be moved to the end of the page instead of smack in the middle of it?

Here's a reference for the Charleston Brace: Effectiveness of the Charleston bending brace in the treatment of single-curve idiopathic scoliosis., Gepstein R, Leitner Y, Zohar E, Angel I, Shabat S, Pekarsky I, Friesem T, Folman Y, Katz A, Fredman B., J Pediatr Orthop. 2002 Jan-Feb;22(1):84-7, —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:04, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

List of braces[edit]

The list of braces either needs independent, reliable sources to support each entry. Any entry without such references should be removed. Also, is the one reference just unpublished research? I couldn't find any publication info in it. --Ronz (talk) 23:09, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

To consider when revising[edit]

I daresay this is going to sound a little bitter, but there should probably be information provided regarding brace failure. If I remember correctly, there's been some research done within the past few years which sheds some better light on the subject, and would make for a beneficial addition.

Issues with: Issues with Hard Bracing...[edit]

This portion of the article is inappropriately candid and unverified. Has a very "wiki how" air to it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pseudonymoniker (talkcontribs) 06:04, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

More sources[edit]

I found a 1957 article by Norton et al, The immobilizing efficiency of back braces: their effect on the posture and motion of the lumbosacral spine. If you search for it in Google Scholar and see who cited it, you can probably find a lot of good information. Most recently, in 2010 Benoist and Lenoir authored Lumbar Orthoses to Prevent and Treat Low-Back Pain. II | (t - c) 03:42, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Needs images[edit]

The article should have an image for every back brace type. Where would such be found? Squish7 (talk) 03:47, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
