Orthoses, Thoracic, Support

Definition : Thoracic orthoses designed to encircle the thorax to provide support to the muscles and bones and to keep the anterior part of the thorax in appropriate position. These devices may consist of wide pieces of elastic fabric or narrow strips of flexible materials (e.g., belts) available in several sizes; the orthoses are usually reinforced with metallic stays for appropriate support of the muscles and thoracic bones. Thoracic support orthoses are used mainly to support and compress the chest muscles, sternum, ribs, and/or other chest anatomical structures during rehabilitation from traumatic injuries (e.g., bone fracture) and/or to provide relief from pain and strain.
