Contraindications to Carbon Bracing

Carbon composite braces are not for everyone. Patients that require a lot of skin contact to hold the leg in proper alignment are not the best candidates for a composite brace. This material is not adjustable, and since the ability to adjust the brace is key to success with these patients, a thermoplastic brace is more appropriate.

Additionally, patients with spasticity or mild to severe clonus are often stimulated with an energy return brace. Therefore, they too are not good candidates for a composite brace.
