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.
A series of studies using the Gensingen brace has produced success rates of over 85%.The brace has also been used successfully to address Cobb angles in excess of 40 degrees where surgery would previously have been indicated.
The patient is assessed by sally and our team and the assessment is sent to Dr Weiss who then applies his brace design using the assessment, the individualised brace design is sent to the factory and our team fit the brace to the patient to Dr Weiss’ high standards.
