Fig. 2 Completed orthosis module for the correction of Scheuermann's disease, thoracic type. Clearly visible: The orthosis almost only consists of elements that constitute the correction zones. - JPG-Grafik 4,00 KB

This article describes trunk orthoses which are manufactured without a plaster cast by using the individual body measurements. They are manufactured in Ortholutionsv CAD CAM technology or on the basis of prefabricated modules. The biomechanical principle is the same in both cases.

The fitting procedure and some examples for Scheuermann’s disease and spondylolisthesis are illustrated in pictures.
