Gensingen Brace Treatment for Scoliosis

The Gensingen brace™ is the first orthotic treatment for scoliosis that is evidence based .It is now prescribed by specialist clinics worldwide as a preferable alternative to surgery providing proven successful outcomes.

The Gensingen brace™ is the brain child of Dr Hans-Rudolf Weiss, a third generation Schroth family – a family with a lifetime’s dedication to the advance of conservative treatment for scoliosis. Dr Weiss has worked tirelessly on brace development since the 1990s.

The ultimate result – The Gensingen brace™ - is recognised to be the most effective and most comfortable brace to use in the treatment of scoliosis. In contrast to the so-called ‘hard’ braces which attempt to treat scoliosis by essentially immobilising the patient, the Gensingen brace guides the body though a gentle corrective movement, realigning the spine and reducing distortions in posture. The design is based on the principle that scoliosis should be addressed in 3 dimensions for the most successful outcomes.

Comparison with Other Braces

Despite being a hard brace, the Gensingen™ is a more comfortable alternative. Pockets of space built within the brace leave room for the curved spine to move and for the patient to breathe into. Other conventional braces, like the Boston brace currently prescribed by the NHS is a completely enclosed body jacket which compresses. Whereas the Gensingen™ works by guiding the movement of the spine so that there is space for it to move into, complying with the Schroth Best Practice method.

A series of studies using the Gensingen brace™ has produced success rates of over 95%.The brace has also been used successfully to address Cobb angles in excess of 40 degrees where surgery would previously have been indicated. Read further information about the Gensingen Brace™
